At its regular meeting on January 11, 2017, at Funtrackers in Flour Bluff, The Flour Bluff Business Association recognized The Children’s Center as FBBA Spotlight of the Month. The pediatric center is one of two in Corpus Christi and is located at 9702 S. Padre Island Drive in Flour Bluff. Pediatricians Dr. Mohamad Hassan and Dr. Yunus Syed provide pediatric health care to the children in the area. Nurse practitioner Jennifer Olivarez, who recently joined the Flour Bluff office, expressed thanks to the FBBA for the award.
“I’m a family nurse practitioner, and I work with Dr. Hassan here in Flour Bluff,” said Olivarez. “I hope to be an asset to the community to help meet the needs of the children. I agree with ‘Keep It in the Bluff’ as a graduate of Flour Bluff High School and a community member who still lives here.”
Monica Salazar, office manager for the Flour Bluff office, reminded everyone that the Flour Bluff clinic is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 361-937-5311.
