Lubbock’s business news includes Oceans Hospital, restaurants, more

Hello A-J readers!

This week, we broke the news on two Lubbock restaurants – Toasted Yolk Café and Fajita Pete’s and several upcoming openings, estimated for December, which will include Oceans Behavioral Hospital and The Mom Lounge.

An interview with the hospital revealed they are looking to hire more than 100 people to help improve Lubbock’s mental health for people ages 50 and older.

“There’s a very big need, so the community in general, and the medical community there are arms wide open,” said Dax Parker, Vice President of Market Development. “We’re really just hoping to be able to bring awareness and complement UMC and Covenant, and just be a real mental health backbone for the community.”

Mary McCabe and Anna O’Steen, owners of The Mom Lounge, also shared their story on how they became friends and business partners. Their business aims to help parents and children meet others, along with offer classes.
