Dallas Firm Purchases Southern Plains Medical Clinics

The Southern Plains Medical Clinic and its facilities in Anadarko and Pauls Valley have been purchased by Texas-based Epic Medical Group. Southern Plains was first established in Chickasha in 1915 and hosts more than 20 medical specialties, over 30 medical providers and an ambulatory surgical center.
 One of Epic’s leaders, Dr. Haresh Boghara, says “Epic has a proven track record in the ‘patient first’ health care model in its multi-state clinic system.”  
 The current Southern Plains facilities will be re-named CareFirst Wellness Associates as of May 1, 2022. Boghara added they are also in the process of hiring new doctors for their Carefirst facilities.
  Epic owns clinics in Texas, Arkansas and now Oklahoma and has plans to expand into other states. Officials say new and additional resources aim to provide a rejuvenated physical appearance with a heavy focus on primary care services especially for older patients in Chickasha. In addition to a more patient-friendly practice Boghara says current employees will experience an uplifting cultural change which will allow them to focus more attention on patient care.  
 Epic Medical Group is led by Dr. Boghara, Executive Vice President, Don McCoy, and Chief Operating Officer Linda Vasquez of Dallas. Existing Southern Plains employees have been promoted into local leadership roles. Shauna Boxley will serve as director of operations, April Rowell will serve as director of clinical services, and Yami Nygaard will serve as director of patient services.
