New Clinic and SportsMed Facility Opens on Campus
May 09, 2018
The new University Sports Medicine Clinic – Shannon Clinic-Jackson facility officially opened on the Angelo State University campus May 8 with ASU and Shannon Health officials conducting a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house.
The partnership venture between ASU and Shannon Health was announced in January 2017, and construction of the 26,000-square-foot facility began about a month later at 2237 S. Jackson St. next to the ASU Junell Center/Stephens Arena.
In a Shannon Health news release, CEO Shane Plymell said, “Shannon’s vision is to be the trusted health care leader in West Texas. Along with providing exceptional health care services to people in their time of need, it is also essential to us to serve as a good health care partner in our community. We are thankful to Angelo State University for their partnership and the opportunity to provide services to more people in our community.”
Primarily a Shannon Clinic, the new building will also house ASU’s Athletic Training Department with its facilities, equipment and personnel. Shannon services will include:
- Shannon Clinic Orthopedic Surgery: Stacy Beaty, MD; Sam Justiss, PA; Cora Compton, RN, MSN, FNP; Thursdays: Caleb Vosburg, MD, and Tham Nguyen, RN, MSN, MBA, FNP
- Shannon Sports Medicine
- Shannon Concussion Clinic
- Shannon Clinic Family Practice: Andrew King, DO, and Tiffany Nunez, FNP
- Shannon Urgent Care: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Lab services
- X-ray services (the Siemens Multitom Rax X-ray system is one of only six in the U.S.)
All three of the family nurse practitioners (FNPs), Cora Compton, Tham Nguyen and Tiffany Nunez, and Dr. Caleb Vosburg are ASU alumni.
In the Shannon Health news release, ASU President Brian J. May said, “We are grateful for Shannon’s partnership in providing first-class health care for our student-athletes and the citizens of San Angelo. Our athletic training staff and student-athletes are looking forward to the additional space and close proximity to general medical and orthopedic physicians. Our relationship with Shannon will strengthen our ability to serve all current and future student-athletes.”
ASU’s athletic training staff will begin moving into their 5,000-square-foot space in the new facility this summer following the culmination of the ongoing Rams and Rambelles baseball, softball and track and field seasons.
