The Wadley Senior Clinic is an out-patient department of Wadley Regional Medical Center with a mission of improving the quality of life by promoting healthy aging. It is a primary care clinic that will see patients 55 years of age and older. “There is limited access to primary care for the Medicare population and especially on the Arkansas side of Texarkana,” explains Thomas Gilbert, CEO of Wadley Regional Medical Center. “We are excited about being able to serve this population and see endless possibilities for our clinic.” Being devoted exclusively to serving the healthcare needs of the older adult, the Wadley Senior Clinic will offer comprehensive and specialized care to help maintain the maximum level of independence, health and well being of its patients. The Wadley Senior Clinic is designed to provide an integrated, team approach to develop an individualized care plan for each patient.

With a specially trained staff who are uniquely sensitive to the needs of patients 55 years of age or older, the healthcare team is anchored by Geriatricians and Geriatric Nurse Practitioners who will work closely with the team of nurses, clinical pharmacists, social workers and dietitians as well as the families to meet each patient’s individual health care needs.

The new SeniorConnection program will be introduced at the Grand Opening. Membership in this unique seniors’ club will benefit its members with discounts, free screenings and social events throughout the year.
