Orthopedic clinic to be discontinued as St. Mark's pursues rural emergency hospital designation


St. Mark’s Medical Center in La Grange, Texas is closing its orthopedic clinic, among other services, as it seeks Rural Emergency Hospital designation.

Starting Feb. 18, St. Mark's will only offer 24/7 emergency services, patient observation and select outpatient care, according to a Feb. 13 news release. Besides orthopedics, inpatient, surgery, post-acute skilled rehab, ambulatory and speech services will be closed.

Rural Hospital designation will help keep St. Mark's open so locals can access emergency care.
