Harris Ave. San Angelo, TX 76903 S hannon Medical Center recently completed the process to acquire San Angelo Community Medical Center and Community Medical Associates. We are proud to now have all of these providers and associates as part of our family at the new Shannon South Campus. This integration gives us the opportunity to combine our strength and expertise to expand access to high-quality, compassionate health care services to our patients throughout the region. One immediate change for patients is that Shannon is now able to honor all existing insurance plans that previously did not include Shannon as an “in-network” provider. In addition, our Epic medi- cal record system is already in use at the South Campus Clinics, and we will implement it in the Shan- non South hospital in the coming months. We are excited about the opportunity to further enhance health care and expand our mission for those we serve in the Concho Valley. HEALTH CARE NETWORK YOUR IS EXPANDING!
