NEW WOMEN’S SERVICES CLINIC SET TO OPEN IN THE
HEART OF THE BUSTLING ‘BETWEEN-THE-LAKES’ AREA
Doctor Newton Will Focus Full-Time on Wylie’s Growing Population
WYLIE, Texas (Aug. 5, 2011) – With the opening this month of the Women’sLink™ Center of Wylie, a Medical Center of Plano facility, women in the fast-growing communities between Lake Ray Hubbard and Lake Lavon can at last receive expert consultation and treatment from an obstetrician/gynecologist whose entire practice is devoted to the care of their reproductive health.
An open house is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visitors will have an opportunity to tour the clinic and meet Jennifer D. Newton, M.D., the center’s medical director. Light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Newton is an honors graduate of the Texas A&M College of Medicine and a former chief resident in obstetrics and gynecology at one of the nation’s leading comprehensive medical centers.
The Women’sLink™ Center of Wylie is located at 901 W. Kirby Street, Suite 650, one-half mile west of Texas 78/Lavon Drive, Wylie’s main commercial thoroughfare. The center opens its doors amid some of the most rapid population growth taking place anywhere in the nation. Wylie itself, which takes in portions of Collin, Dallas, and Rockwall counties, grew by some 174 percent between 2000 and 2010, according to U.S. Census data. The city’s median age is only slightly above 30.
“The women in the ‘between-the-lakes’ area have long needed their own dedicated specialist,” says Troy A. Villarreal, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of The Medical Center of Plano, the new clinic’s parent hospital.

“We think they’ll be excited to hear that for prenatal visits and other needs, they can see a trusted practitioner and friend right in their own hometown, without having to worry about fighting traffic and finding a place to park.”
The center’s scheduled hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“The atmosphere of the center is designed to put patients at ease,” says Dr. Newton, who was raised less than 50 miles away in the tiny Fannin County community of Honey Grove, and who is herself the mother of two healthy young children.
“It will be a warm, family-friendly place where you can talk to a doctor who really listens to you and understands what you are experiencing, and receive state-of-the-art testing and treatment right there in the office.”
Available office procedures will include ultrasound, colposcopy, loop electrical excision (LEEP), endometrial ablation, and Essure – a non-surgical, hormone-free, permanent birth-control procedure performed with the aid of a tiny video camera.
Through a cooperative arrangement with The Medical Center of Plano, Dr. Newton also has access to the da Vinci™ Si Surgical System, an ultramodern tool that can be used to perform minimally invasive gynecological surgery in cases previously thought too complex and delicate for such an approach.
The roomy new clinic measures nearly 2,000 square feet. It is softly lit and decorated throughout in muted pastels and prints. The waiting area features a flat-screen TV and a number of other deluxe amenities.
Plentiful free parking is available directly in front of the center.
