El Paso physician who had license suspended not a Beaumont doctor

El Paso News

Lt. Col. Kelly J. Turner, the El Paso physician who had his license suspended by the Texas Medical Board, is not an employee of William Beaumont Army Medical Center.

In 2005, Turner was sent overseas through the CONUS Replacement Center, which processes non-unit related personnel for deployment, according to William Beaumont records.

Turner’s medical license lists his address of practice at 5005 N. Piedras Street, which is the same address as William Beaumont. However, the hospital clarified his connection on Thursday. 

“We strive to provide and maintain an environment of patient-friendly access to high-quality
healthcare for all of our beneficiaries,” the hospital said in a statement.
