Mid-Cities Direct Care opened in May at 1501 Hughes Road, Ste. 103, Grapevine. The clinic provides direct primary care for an annual fee, which business officials say more easily allows the provision of long-term, continuous care. This results in face-to-face, in-office services and the occasional telemedicine checkup. 817-284-9875. www.midcitiesdirectcare.com
