COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The newest addition to MercyMed of Columbus is now open.
The new addition opened Tuesday, July 5 and features a brand new 6,000 square foot clinical space for patients.
Twelve exam rooms, a lab, a procedure room for specialists, a counseling office and four dental rooms all make up the new space.
We spoke with the Director of Development Billy Holbrook on what this new addition means for those seeking healthcare in the Columbus area.
"Today's a big day because we've expanded," Holbrook said. "We've met a halfway point, a big milestone for us, we're occupying this new space here behind me equipped with 12 exam rooms, a procedure room and we're hoping later this year to start dentistry to integrate with health care."
MercyMed says their purpose is to help to remove significant barriers to healthcare for the underserved in the Chattahoochee Valley.
