Teresa Corrigan

Payson Regional Medical Center is expanding primary care access to Tonto Basin. Residents living in the area no longer have to drive 30 miles to see a doctor. Rim Country Family Care – Tonto Basin Clinic will open at 186 E. Stephens Way in Tonto Basin Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Teresa Corrigan, FNP-BC, a board-certified family nurse practitioner, will see patients on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the clinic from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Nurse practitioners have been providing primary, acute and specialty health care to patients of all ages and walks of life for nearly half a century. Nurse practitioners are clinicians who blend clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health management.

In her day-to-day practice, Corrigan will be able to:

• Order, perform and interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays.

• Diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections and injuries.

• Prescribe medications and other treatments.

• Manage patients’ overall care.

• Counsel and educate patients on health promotion and disease prevention.

• Perform minor procedures including suturing of minor wounds.

After graduating from Indiana University School of Nursing, Corrigan worked as an R.N. for 18 years before completing her master’s degree as a Nurse Practitioner at State University in New York. She is married and has two sons.

Her clinic accepts most insurance.

What happened to the Punkin Center Charities medical office? Oh yes, the land was sold to a church maybe. Wonder where the money went? And also what happened to the $25,000 cash and all the medical equipment and furnishings that we donated? Not junk, practically new that a Dr. was selling because he was joining Casa Blanca Medical and all he needed was his stethoscope.
3 complete examining rooms, rolling stools, EKG machine, along with all the hanging blood pressure equipment, furniture for waiting room and I could go on and on. Even a large oak table to have meetings or whatever and a refrigerator. To bad all that medical equipment disappeared along with the $25,000. I'm sure the members of Punkin Center Charities must know. It would make an interesting story.
