LUBBOCK, TX (NEWS RELEASE) - Today Covenant Health hosted the ribbon cutting and grand opening of Covenant Medical Group’s new 24,800 square-foot family health care and urgent care clinic in northwest Lubbock, located at 611 North Frankford Ave., at the corner of North Frankford and Erskine Road. The new clinic will provide comprehensive services to families in northwest Lubbock and the surrounding areas.
The investment, part of the $450 million “Keeping the Covenant” campaign, is consistent with Covenant Health’s patient-centered approach, making quality primary care services more accessible to residents that live and work nearby. The clinic’s modern design provides the community a state-of-the-art, family-centered facility.
“Patients may visit the urgent care clinic with no appointment necessary, for treatment of minor and common illnesses,” said Kristen Kothmann, vice president and chief operating officer of Covenant Medical Group. “In addition to providing high quality care for non-life threatening emergencies, the clinic will also provide x-ray and lab services. If a patient receives services at our clinic and does not have a primary care physician, we will be happy to help find the right doctor for them and their family.”
The new clinic adds to Covenant Medical Group, the region’s largest group of health care providers and will complement Covenant Health’s extensive network of health care services.
“We are very proud to open our fourth extended-hour location which offers affordable urgent care services at convenient times for patients,” Kothmann said.
The location’s hours will provide access to both primary and urgent care throughout the week. The primary care clinic is open weekdays from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. The urgent care clinic is open weekdays from 8 a.m. - 7 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Sundays from 12 - 5 p.m.
Services offered include:
- Family medicine

- Group Education Room
- Internal medicine
- Extended Hours
Three physicians – Porntip Chungchansat, MD; James Stanley Garrett, MD; and Shital Popat, MD – will staff the clinic, with space to add up to three more physicians in the future. All three physicians are accepting new patients. Please call (806) 725-5480 to schedule an appointment or visit CovMedGroup.org/NW for more information.
