Temple Community Clinic was established in 1992 through a Leadership Temple project with the support of local physicians and community leaders. For over 30 years, through the hearts of volunteers and the generosity of community supporters, like McLane Company, the Temple Community Clinic has filled the gap in access to healthcare for Bell County residents.
Realizing a need for additional space for services and a more centralized location, businesses and volunteers alike began a capital campaign to raise $6m for the construction of a new facility, which was completed in early January.
The ribbon cutting was hosted by the Temple Chamber of Commerce and Chad Rice, chief financial officer, and Michelle Patterson, vice president of marketing and communications, were in attendance. It included statements and proclamations by city officials, as well as guided tours through the new facility.
McLane is proud to be counted among businesses and individuals supporting such a vital organization in our community, sponsoring the new medical staff room. The room provides a space for the visiting practitioners to work when they are not seeing patients.
Driven by a core priority of “striving towards environmental, social, and governance excellence,” McLane has established a robust corporate giving strategy. McLane recognizes its success is intertwined with the communities where it operates, and it provides support and enriches them in every way they can. Investing in community health aligns perfectly with their commitment to improving the lives of our teammates and the communities where we live and serve.
