In 1981, Bruce Purdy, MD, built Muleshoe Family Medicine Clinic, that is still in the same location across the street from the hospital, 701 S. First Street. Dr. Purdy and Dr. Allgood started taking call from 5pm-11pm and weekends, helping the hospital to secure state designation for an Emergency Department.
Muleshoe Area Medical Center purchased Muleshoe Family Medicine and Medical Clinic of Muleshoe in the late 1990s. Both clinics are now operated by the hospital as provider-based federally designated Rural Health Clinics.
Dr. Purdy continues to practice at Muleshoe Family Medicine Clinic. He sees patients at the clinic from 8:00 a.m., to 5:00 p.m. For an appointment, please call: 806-272-7531.
Medical Clinic of Muleshoe is staffed by Kenneth Burk, D.O., Suzanne Bunker, PA-C and Christy Lee FNP-C. The clinic recently relocated to newly renovated space inside the hospital, with the closest access through the front door on the south side of the hospital. Hours of operation are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For an appointment, please call: 806.272.7544.
