DeTar On Demand Consolidates Resources to Increase Access to Service

Non-emergency issues and COVID-19 testing available

VICTORIA, Texas- DeTar On Demand, located at 9006 N. Navarro, has temporarily closed its operations and consolidated all resources to the DeTar Hospital Navarro campus, effective June 30 at noon.

The clinic’s staff and providers will move to the DeTar On Demand clinic at 510 E Rio Grande and join forces with DeTar Family Medicine Center to increase access to care for patients seeking care for non-emergent medical issues and COVID-19 testing. No appointment is necessary.

“Protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff and community is our priority,” said Bernard Leger, CEO for the DeTar Healthcare System. “The surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the Crossroads area has resulted in high volumes of patients being seen at our DeTar On Demand walk-in clinic and has increased wait times as a result. Consolidating our staffing to a more central location allows us to provide care in a more timely fashion.”

As of 1:00 p.m. walk-in patients will now be seen at the following locations:

“We do enforce a mandatory masking policy at our facilities, as well as social distancing and hand hygiene practices,” added Leger. “And we encourage members of our community to observe these practices in their day-to-day life, as well. This is the time for us all to be diligent about protecting ourselves and our neighbors.”
