Piedmont Healthcare is bringing more doctors to the north end of Henry County.
The medical giant plans to soon open offices in a 5,000-square-foot space next to the Fairview Urgent Care, said Henry Commissioner Bruce Holmes, who represents the area. The office will have at least four doctors and will offer OBGYN and primary care services.
“The area is medically underserved, so this will go a long way to helping us close that gap,” Holmes said. “Piedmont saw the opportunity to serve not only north Henry, but also nearby north Clayton, west Rockdale and south DeKalb counties.”
Holmes said Piedmont and builder Nidus Development also plan to collaborate on a 40,000-square-foot medical office building to further improve access to hospital care for residents in the north Henry area and bordering counties. Piedmont and Nidus have commitments for about 85 percent of the building and construction is expected to begin sometime this year.
“We have been focused on developing a health and wellness commercial corridor that would deliver quality healthcare to our citizens while creating an employment hub simultaneously creating high-paying jobs for our citizens, he said.
“There are nearly 600,000 residents in a 10-mile radius,” Holmes added. “The Fairview area consists of unincorporated Ellenwood and Stockbridge, located minutes from downtown Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.”
