Dell relocates its medical residency program

Tuesday, March 19, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Dell Medical School Family Residency Program at the University of Texas and CommUnityCare Blackstock Health Center are both relocating to the Central Health Southeast Health & Wellness Center at 2901 Montopolis Drive. CommUnityCare moved from its downtown location to Southeast Austin on March 18. “Integrating Dell Med doctors into CommUnityCare continues to create a pipeline of physicians,” said Mike Geeslin, president and CEO of Central Health. “Data shows that doctors who train in a community often stay and practice in the same community. We believe many of these Dell Med family medicine residents – under the supervision of exceptional faculty – will stay in Travis County and care for residents with low income for years to come.” Moving Blackstock to Central Health Southeast Health & Wellness Center is expected to increase the center’s available primary care visit appointments from 12,000 to 20,000 annually. Said CommUnityCare VP of Health Center Advancement Matt Balthazar, “As Austin demographics have changed, our patients are moving further away from Austin’s core and into surrounding communities. Relocating to the Central Health Southeast Health & Wellness Center allows us to provide a one-stop shop for our patients and families that includes specialty care, x-ray, pharmacy, lab, and a host of wellness programs, all under one roof.”
