After providing healthcare for more than three decades to folks in Iowa Park, Larry Stutte of Park Clinic is joining forces with the Electra Hospital District.

Stutte said this opportunity presented itself about 14 years ago, but he said he believes now is the right time.

This is the 10th entity owned by the Electra Hospital District including the Iowa Park Clinic and more.

This merger will provide more options for inpatient and outpatient treatments, along with access to outpatient procedures such as X-ray, MRI and respiratory care.

“I think it’s gonna be a great opportunity for both Electra and Iowa Park to improve, expand the accessibility to healthcare to both here in Iowa Park and Electra,” Stutte said.

The merger takes effect on Aug. 1.

Stutte will continue to practice out of his current clinic in Iowa Park.
