This week’s opening of the new Methodist Family Health Center – Mansfield North, 1601 E. Debbie Ln., Suite 2109, highlights the continuation of a $13 million commitment Methodist Health System is making in expanding primary care medicine through 2014.

A major goal of Methodist’s business plan is to expand its successful model of providing community-based primary care at strategic locations throughout North Texas. The physician chosen to lead the new Mansfield North center is one who is familiar with the community he serves. Darin Charles, MD, board-certified in family medicine, graduated from Mansfield High School before earning his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma College of medicine. After completing his residency at the University of Texas Health Center at Tyler, Dr. Charles returned home to Mansfield where he’s practiced at the Methodist Mansfield Medical Group since 2007.

The $419,000, 3,945-square-foot facility features guest Wi-Fi, 10 exam rooms, on-site lab services, and electronic health records. Two high-demand patient services available are same-day appointments and acceptance of all major managed care plans in the Metroplex. Once capital costs are coupled with $295,000 in annual operational expenses, the center represents a $714,000 investment by Methodist at Mansfield North.
