Dayton, TX (September 27, 2021) - Dayton Mayor Caroline Wadzeck presented Chambers Health CEO William Kiefer with a proclamation on behalf of the Dayton City Council at last week’s council meeting. The proclamation named September 22, 2021, as OmniPoint Health Day in the city and recognized the medical care company’s 70-plus years of service in the region.

The company’s new OmniPoint Health location in Dayton expands healthcare options and will improve the quality of life for area residents by offering a variety of health and wellness programs.

“The City of Dayton has been a great partner in helping us bring more healthcare options to its residents,” Kiefer said. “From the Downtown Improvement Grant that we received to walking us through permitting, it’s clear they are focused on improving the quality of life for their residents. We intend on building on our promise to bring worldclass care to this community without losing that personal, hometown touch.”

The company celebrated OmniPoint Health Day by inviting city leaders and the public to a ribbon-cutting ceremony with personal tours of the facility, one-on-one discussions with the health system’s executives. The event was jointly hosted by the Dayton Chamber of Commerce and Liberty County Chamber of Commerce.

The new state-of-the art facility, which opened September 1, is a first of its kind for the Dayton area. New patients are accepted with same-day appointments available by calling 936.340.5117.

OmniPoint Health brings added convenience to residents not just with additional primary care options, but also by offering services that aren’t currently available without traveling out of town, such as:

On-site Diagnostics – includes radiology (X-rays) and diagnostic lab work, such as rapid testing for strep, flu, RSV, or COVID-19

Counseling Services – all ages can visit a licensed professional counselor onsite

Smoking Cessation Program: – participants receive free nicotine replacement therapy delivered by an M.D. Anderson-trained licensed professional counselor

“This facility is just the beginning of the extended services we are planning for residents,” Kiefer said. “We will continue to work with the city to identify and provide additional medical services.”

Hours of operation will be Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with future plans to offer services after hours and on weekends. OmniPoint Health is in-network for most major insurance plans, including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, United Health Care, Cigna, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Chambers Health unveiled its intention to change its name and identity to OmniPoint Health in a move that represents the transformation happening at the health system, which includes expanding locations to provide worldclass care to residents in rural areas. The name change for the entire health system and its existing facilities will occur January 2022.
