Texas ranks 47th of 50 states in supply of primary care doctors. Do you think nurse practitioners (NPs) could provide the growing gap as primary care providers?

Mall Sets Sights on South Texas Healthcare Clinics

The South Texas Veterans Health Care System (STVHCS) has opened two clinics at the Wonderland of the Americas mall.

The new STVHCS primary care clinics, occupy two separate spaces in the Wonderland Medical Center on the lower level of the mall totaling approximately 19,500 square feet.  These clinics are state-of-the-art facilities, offering medical services to all veterans.

We are thrilled to announce the addition of our two primary care clinics at Wonderland of the Americas," says Marie Weldon, Director of the South Texas Veterans Health Care System.  "Our new clinics will offer local veterans convenient access to health care."

The mall was originally created by A.L. Becker, E.C. Becker, W.W. Bollins & Charles Becker, owners of San Antonio's Community Realty Co.

On September 14, 1961, Wonderland of the Americas officially opened its doors to the Balcones Heights area for shopping and entertainment.  The mall was later renovated and introduced as Crossroads Mall, with a further renovation in 2010 to re-introduce Wonderland of the Americas. 

The mall hosts numerous civic activities, musical events and holiday events on a weekly basis.  The lower level of the mall is dedicated to the Wonderland Medical Center, including the Career Point Nursing School.
