CHRISTUS Southeast Texas increases investment in Mid County with opening of new facility New facility will include physicians from CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Orthopedic Specialty Center and Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute, along with CHRISTUS Family Medicine May 4, 2021

Port Arthur, TX – In a move designed to accommodate our growing patient family and offer easy access to many of our neighbors, the new CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System facility will soon open its doors. The partnership between the new CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Orthopedic Specialty Center Mid County, Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute and CHRISTUS Family Medicine will bring several of the region’s highly trained orthopedic specialists (John Iceton, MD, Stephen Hall, DO and Richard G. Bowling, DPM) and primary care physicians and providers (Kimberly Pitts, DO and Deborah Vanover, NP) under one roof.

Over the years, the communities of Port Arthur, Groves, Port Neches, Nederland and surrounding neighbors have increasingly turned to our Orthopedic Specialty Center and Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute for advanced orthopedic care they need. As our patient family has grown, so has the need for new space. As a result, orthopedic surgeons John Iceton, MD and Stephen Hall, DO, and podiatrist Richard G. Bowling, DPM will move from their two current office locations to one spacious new suite along Highway 365 in Port Arthur.

“We are excited about this new location that will provide more convenience for the comfort our patients. This move means they will not have to drive miles away to get high-quality care for a full range of orthopedic conditions and injuries,” said Keith Hill, MD, President of Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute.

In addition, Kimberly Pitts, DO, and Nurse Practitioner, Deborah Vanover of CHRISTUS Family Medicine – Port Neches will move from her current office to the new Mid County location. Dr. Pitts will continue her years of service to the area as a family medicine physician and concussion specialist. Her expertise and contributions to the CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Sports Medicine Program help keep our local student-athletes safe and healthy.

The new CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Orthopedic Specialty Center – Mid County and Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute is located at 3500 Highway 365, Suite 100 in Port Arthur. Dr. Iceton, Dr. Hall, and Dr. Bowling will begin seeing patients in this new office on June 14. Dr. Pitts and Deborah Vanover, NP with CHRISTUS Family Medicine will be at the same address, in Suite 200, and will move in July.

CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System continues to expand its services and access for its patients throughout the area’s 9-county region. The mission to extend the health ministry of Jesus Christ continues to propel the organization forward, especially in light of challenges such as the world-wide pandemic.

“It’s an honor to serve our neighbors in the Mid County community, and we do so in a spirit of love and compassion alongside many of the area’s most experienced and dedicated physicians,” says Paul Trevino, President and CEO, CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System. “Strong partnerships like this allow us to look forward to another 90 years of service ahead.”
