An interesting statistic cropped up in the jobs sector during the first quarter of 2018: for the first time in history, health care surpassed manufacturing and retail as the largest source of jobs in the U.S. An aging population is partially responsible for those numbers—and indeed, the graying of the nation has widespread implications, impacting not only the job market, but the quality and level of care hospitals provide.
Valley Care Clinics is taking a proactive approach to the demands on health care. With over 23 locations, the Rio Grande Valley-based medical provider has a long history of delivering quality services to multi-generational families who entrust their care to the clinic’s network of primary care providers and specialists. This emphasis on best-in-class health care has driven expansion, physician recruitment, the opening of new locations, extended hours, online appointment booking and raised awareness of the benefits of being part of an integrated care network with South Texas Health System. Recently, the clinics have expanded services in the areas of family medicine, cardiovascular care, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology and neurosurgery, trauma and various other critical fields.
