Residents in north Fulton County now have easier access to urgent care for non-life-threatening injuries.
On Monday, the WellStar Health System opened its newest facility in Roswell, the North Fulton Urgent Care Center. The one-level 5,300 square-foot facility is located at 1360 Upper Hembree Road.
The center will serve all residents of north Fulton County for illnesses and injuries. It will be open each day of the year, from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
While the center will be able to offer treatment for minor injuries, sore throats, stomach pains, and stitches for minor lacerations, it will also be equipped to provide laboratory and X-ray services, sports physicals, flu shots and other services. The center will be staffed by two physicians, in addition to several nurses.
Walk-in patients are welcome, but patients can also schedule appointments 24 hours in advance on the WellStar website.
“WellStar is excited to meet the growing demand for urgent care services in North Fulton,” Jon-Paul Croom, the president of WellStar North Fulton Hospital, said in a statement. “Our newest urgent care center allows us to offer greater convenience to residents and patients and provides an additional healthcare option to complement WellStar North Fulton Hospital and WellStar Avalon Health Park, scheduled to open in 2019.”
WellStar broke ground on the Avalon Health Park in May.
This is WellStar’s 10th urgent care center. It operates similar facilities in Kennesaw, Marietta, Smyrna and Woodstock.
