Let's Get Started

Hugh Thomas, MSN, Director

Hugh Thomas’s passion for helping people began in childhood, as being taught by his mother being a labor and delivery nurse and his father a radiologist.  But what really sets him apart is his insatiable appetite for learning. Hugh holds not only a MSN in Nursing Science with a concentration in Family Medicine, he also holds degrees in B.S. in Technology, concentration in aviation. It is his drive to use the latest science and technology to help patients that started New Start Clinics.
But, you can’t really understand New Start Clinics without going all the way back to Hugh’s roots, picking strawberries in the fields with his siblings to help support the family. It was this fundamental hard work mantra that shaped New Start Clinics patient-first approach. In his early years he saw how savvy doctors would use every possible opportunity to turn a profit with extra lab work and unnecessary follow-ups, and it made him sick. The very nature of addiction strips people of their money, so he knew to truly help people he needed to minimize cost and get to the root of problems as fast as possible. Now eight locations later, Hugh is still taking the time to personally see patients and set the tone for his team.
