A new urgent and primary care center from Doctors Hospital is now open in Evans.
The center is located at 3110 William Few Parkway in the Riverwood Town Center in Evans. The new center will offer care for adult and pediatric patients, with both same-day and after-hour appointments. Officials say this is an attempt to reach patients in the further parts of Columbia County.
"This is a bedroom community. There's no medical care for about 20 minutes and we have large neighborhoods, beautiful families behind us and they had no urgent contact for medical care," said Dr. Sharon Palmer. "In this area, we are able to gather a larger segment of the population and help them."
Doctors Urgent + Primary Care will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Fridays.
