Cartersville Medical Center December 20, 2019

Cartersville, GA - Cartersville Urgent Care will open a second location in early 2020 at 11 Charley Harper Drive, Suite 100 (between Old Mill Road and West Avenue). In addition to urgent care services, the new location will provide occupational health services. This service line is being relocated from Cartersville Medical Center.

"Cartersville Medical Center is deeply committed to quality patient care and ease of access to that care, and we are very pleased to be bringing a second urgent care location to the Cartersville community," said Chris Mosley, CEO, Cartersville Medical Center. "We are also very proud to be moving our occupational health services from the medical center campus to this new urgent care location. Business and industry employees will now have more efficient and convenient access to the occupational health services they need."

Occupational health services include employee physicals, biological testing, immunizations, all aspects of drug and alcohol testing, employee injury care, respirator fit testing and more. Also, in a continuing effort to promote wellness and safety, company on-site programs and screenings are offered.

For medical needs that do not require a visit to the emergency room, or in instances when a patient is unable to see their primary care physician, Cartersville Urgent Care fills the gap between primary care and emergency care needs. Cartersville Urgent Care patients also have access to Cartersville Medical Center's network of physicians should they need to be referred to see a specialist for continued care.

"We are excited to announce the opening of our second center on the west side of Cartersville after receiving such a warm welcome from the community at our Main Street Marketplace location earlier in the year," said Samir Bhatia, President of Cartersville Urgent Care. "We saw the need for more healthcare access points on the west side of Cartersville not only for the residents but also for the companies who may benefit from convenient occupational health services."

Occupational health clients at this new location will find expanded hours, new imaging equipment, a larger space, and the same patient navigation process, staff relationships and high level of customer service and follow-up. Additionally, the convenient location will provide easy access for tractor trailers, fire trucks, EMS vehicles and similar other large vehicles utilized by business and industry clients.

The transition of Cartersville Occupational Health & Medicine to the new Cartersville Urgent Care & Occupational Health location is expected to take place in early February, upon the opening of the new center. Cartersville Urgent Care offers walk-in care for most minor injuries and illnesses along with preventative care and testing. Whether a patient has a fracture or the flu, the modern facility and experienced providers are able to quickly diagnose and recommend a course of treatment. The facility also has on-site x-ray and in-house labs. Open 7-days a week, the hours of operation for the West Cartersville location will be Monday - Friday from 7:00am until 7:00pm and Saturday - Sunday from 9:00am until 6:00pm Patients may walk in or check in online.

An announcement for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house will be forthcoming.
