New Physicians Arrive in Lufkin

Over the past years, due to a physician shortage, East Texas hospitals have seen a decline in the number of doctors applying for jobs, but this week Woodland Heights and Memorial hospitals will welcome 32 new doctors.

Dr. Vivek Mangla says the need for doctors and the East Texas hospitality made him take a serious look at moving to Lufkin.

Though many positions are now filled at these medical facilities, the need for doctors continues.
