Administrators at Brownfield Regional Medical Center have closed the medical practice of Dr. Dennis Tedford until further notice.

He is an employee of the Lubbock-based Covenant Medical Group and contracts with BRMC and the Clinic.

Covenant Medical Group has issued a verbal suspension pending an ongoing investigation into the local physician’s prescribing of opioid narcotics.

Hospital CEO Jerry Jasper told a local newspaper that Dr. Tedford’s patients would be “reassigned” and that his OB patients would be seen by Mandy McQueen, P.A.

The BRMC Clinic remains open.

Covenant Health has released a statement regarding the matter:

“We are aware of the DEA’s investigation in Brownfield involving Dr. Dennis Tedford. We are closely monitoring the situation and helping out in any way that we can. As of right now, we have no more information to provide.”
