CHRISTUS Physician Group is pleased to announce the opening of its newest clinic on Padre Island. CHRISTUS Family Medicine – Padre Island is now open and accepting new patients. A new face will also be on hand to welcome patients: Elsie DeLeon, RN, MSN, FNP-C will serve as the clinic’s new certified Family Nurse Practitioner. Elsie, a native of Cuba, immigrated to Miami before her family settled in Corpus Christi. It was there that Elsie’s father practiced orthopedic surgery for three decades. “My parents taught me adaptability, perseverance and the importance of family,” explains DeLeon. “Growing up in Corpus Christi was a joyful experience.”
As is customary, CHRISTUS will offer a special blessing at the open house and ribbon cutting.
