New Primary Care Clinic Opens in Flowood

Hattiesburg Clinic is now providing care in Flowood, Miss., with the official opening of Flowood Primary Care.  

The new clinic will be home to five physicians, including Christopher D. Boston, MDJennifer J. Bryan, MDStephen C. Hammack, MD, FAAFPLisa M. Keeling, MD; and C. Andrew Ouzts, MD. These physicians will be providing primary care in a variety of areas, including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and sports medicine, which allows them to provide comprehensive care to entire families – from infants and athletes to parents and grandparents.  

All five Jackson-area physicians have expressed their enthusiasm around the clinic’s expansion to the community.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the team establishing Hattiesburg Clinic in the vibrant community of Flowood,” Dr. Bryan said. “With its esteemed reputation as a national leader in health care, Hattiesburg Clinic brings a wealth of expertise, compassion and advanced medical services to our residents.” 

“I’m excited to join a group with the reputation of Hattiesburg Clinic and bring their model of care to the Jackson metropolitan area,” Dr. Hammack said. “They’ve invested in technology and equipment to allow us to provide the best patient care and experience available.”

Bryan N. Batson, MD, Chief Executive Officer at Hattiesburg Clinic, said the decision to expand into the Jackson community was done with great thought and consideration. 

“We are honored to have the opportunity to provide care here,” Batson stated. “Many of our physicians received some or all of their medical training in Jackson, and we have a history of strong relationships with several medical facilities and providers in the area, which helped us in our decision-making process.”

Batson believes that expanding to Flowood will create an opportunity for Hattiesburg Clinic to bring its vision of quality health care to an entirely new community of patients.

“Hattiesburg Clinic opened its doors for the first time in 1963 when 10 physicians came together with a vision of how they could improve health care in their community. Today, the clinic continues with that same goal in mind as we have grown to serve 18 counties in Mississippi,” Batson explained. “I believe those founding physicians would be proud to know we remain focused on those same patient- and community-centered goals of excellence and service in Flowood.”

Dr. Ouzts said their focus is the future. 

“We look forward to the opportunity to continue serving our patients as part of Hattiesburg Clinic, an organization with 60 years of great experience and expertise in providing quality, cost-effective and patient-centered care,” he said.
