USMD Adds Four Physicians to Support Growing Healthcare Needs of Communities
New Physicians Help USMD Expand Healthcare Services to More Patients across
Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
IRVING, Texas -- September 4, 2013
USMD Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: USMD), a physician-led integrated healthcare
system, announced today that four new physicians — Karen Klatte, M.D.; Aungel
Evans, M.D.; Robin Johnston, M.D.; and Ayesha Khan, D.O. — have joined USMD
Affiliated Services. These new physicians have been added to support the
growing healthcare needs of the communities USMD serves.
“I am very pleased to welcome these four physicians to USMD,” said John House,
M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of USMD Holdings. “The DFW area is
growing rapidly. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Dallas ranks seventh on
the list of cities with the largest population increases, and Fort Worth ranks
tenth. Adding these physicians will allow USMD to continue providing our
patients with high-quality, affordable and personalized medical care.”
Dr. Klatte, a cardiologist, has joined USMD at its Midlothian location. Adding
a second cardiologist to USMD’s growing network of physicians was necessary
since heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death worldwide.
Dr. Evans and Dr. Johnston will join USMD’s team of obstetrics and gynecology
physicians, bringing the total number of OB/GYNs at USMD to 34. Dr. Khan will
join USMD as a family practice physician, bringing the total number of family
practitioners at USMD to 26.
