Rice named manager of Bluegrass Clinic
Terry Rice has been named practice manager for Bluegrass Clinic in Stanford and Liberty. The clinics offer family medicine and obstetrics care.
She came to Bluegrass Clinic in September after working with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in Lexington.
Several new services have been added in the Stanford location in recent months, Rice said.
A new 3/4D ultrasound gives an expectant mother a full-color look at her soon-to-be delivered baby, even showing facial features, said Rice. "We have full-body bone density scans available, and we are getting ready to become a truly paperless office with electronic medical records," Rice said.
