Medical Center of McKinney has opened a senior health clinic focused on a new approach to geriatric care. The McKinney Senior Health Clinic, 4201 Medical Center Drive, Suite 300, opened its doors on Monday, July 1.

The McKinney Senior Health Clinic is designed to serve as a global center where health care and medical needs of seniors will be met – in a full-service, state-of-the-art facility.

An estimated three out of four people over the age of 65 have multiple chronic health conditions. This means a typical senior may have diabetes, arthritis and high blood pressure.
