Physician Network Services
Welcome to UMC Physician Network Services! Physician Network Services (PNS) is a
physician practice management group formed by UMC in 1996 to manage the hospital's
Community Health Centers and to develop a broad base of primary care patients that
would support the hospital and medical school.
As a young boy, Dr. Charles Addington, II set a goal to become a physician and care for the people in his hometown of Wolfforth. In August of 1999, PNS was thrilled to help make his dream come true when they hired him to be the doctor for Wolfforth Clinic. Physician Assistant Johnny Turner joined Dr. Addington at Wolfforth Clinic in February 2006. Other team members include Clinic Manager Eddie Copelin; Nursing Staff – Jonnie Stilley, Lolly Mendez, Saylor McCartor, Gail Davis and Alicia Daniel; Receptionists Lindsey Barrow, Alice Turner and Kara Reynolds.
When asked what makes the team at Wolfforth unique, they responded with the following article:
Our expended energies, as an office, are focused on the unique individuals who make up our workplace and all the tapestries of their lives. We at present have a fine young man on staff that is in the process of entering medical school along with the task of nurturing and caring for his grandparents. His granddad is a delight and his grandson follows suit.
We are blessed with wonderful young mothers and all the “goings-on” with their little ones – school parties, athletic events and hugs and kisses when sickness sets in. We also have wonderful foster moms on staff which means we have open arms and hearts on 24 hour call for whatever “the world” brings our way.
Grandparenting – that is always made a priority in our daily routine, the accomplishments, the heart break, the unconditional love.
The foundation of our expended energies is that of three fine men. One brings humor to a situation – always available for a good laugh, a practical joke, but the key is “always available” to each of us. The other is “a constant, firmly planted – a calming force in any given situation. And the third a force to be reckoned with – outstretched arms and heart to an entire community, city, schools, volunteer agencies.
When you think about it, Wolfforth Clinic isn’t a clinic at all…it’s a family – a family where all are invited and welcomed and valued whether you are among those who call this “home” or one who walks through the door for the very first time you come to know what Wolfforth Clinic is…a family to each other and a family to all.
Wolfforth Clinic has seven exam rooms, one procedure room plus onsite laboratory and X-ray. They also offer PNS’s online registration program – Wait From Home.

Meet Our Staff
Jonnie Stilley, LVN, had been teaching pre-school students at Second Baptist Church when she decided to go back into nursing. In August of 1999, she interviewed at PNS with Dr. Charles Addington and soon went to work at Wolfforth Clinic. It was a perfect fit.
When you meet Miss Jonnie, as she is fondly called, you can see the twinkle in her eyes and know that she genuinely cares for people and loves life. She is a nurturer. At Wolfforth Clinic, Miss Jonnie cares for patients of all ages and she makes house calls too. Patients bond with Miss Jonnie and trust the quality care she provides. As many of her patients begin to age and realize that they can no longer care for themselves, it has been her privilege to guide the patients and their families through the transition of moving to a long-term care facility or an assisted living center. When asked what she enjoys most about her job, she simply stated, “We heal people here.”
Back in 1972, Miss Jonnie made the decision to attend Lubbock School of Vocational Nursing. She and one other student chose the specialty of pediatrics. Upon graduation, she joined Pediatrician Dr. Joseph Sasano in 1973 and together they began the new TTU Health Sciences Center Department of Pediatrics in Thompson Hall. During her initial nursing career, she had firsts in multiple areas including starting a cath lab and Lubbock’s well-baby clinic. Feeling the need to continue her education, she enrolled in a literature class at South Plains College, where she met a handsome man named John. She and John will celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary this August.
The youngest of seven children, she had a very strong bond with her mother who taught her to always choose to see the good in every situation. It was in the third grade that Miss Jonnie told her mother that she was going to be a teacher and that one day she would go to Africa. Many years later, after caring for one of her patients, she received a call from the patient’s husband inviting her on a mission trip to Africa. The change she’d collected over the years was exactly enough to pay for her plane ticket. Miss Jonnie says, “Never give up on your dreams.”
Jonnie is married to John and has two children plus an amazing grandson named Cooper. She also enjoys gardening and reading.
