Attention Urgent Care Patients: Beginning the morning of Sunday, April 12, NMC will be consolidating Urgent Care services to our St. Albans location on NMC’s main campus. We have seen a significant decline in the number of patients coming to the Georgia site and need to relocate that staff to help elsewhere.
Starting Sunday, April 12, Urgent Care Services will be available at our St. Albans location at the Medical Office Building seven days per week: Monday – Friday, 8am to 8pm; Saturday, 8am to 5pm; and Sunday, 9am to 3pm. The Urgent Care facility in Georgia will be closed until further notice.
We have taken the appropriate steps to ensure this is medically appropriate. We are separating non-respiratory-concern patients and providers and care areas away from those for patients with respiratory concerns. Please be assured that we are taking every measure to protect our patients and staff. This includes appropriate wearing of masks and increased housekeeping. We will continue to refine our processes as new information emerges and situations change.
If you suspect you may have COVID-19, please call your primary care provider. <3/19/21 update:> If you are a patient of Northwestern Primary Care, Northwestern Georgia Health Center, or Northwestern Pediatrics, you may call the information line for patients of those practices at 752-1500 for an online visit. If you do not have a primary care provider, you may call NMC’s Community Relations Office at 524-1280 for referral to Primary Care or you may be seen at Northwestern Urgent Care on the NMC Campus at 133 Fairfield Street in St. Albans.
If you have other medical concerns, please call your provider first and they will advise you on how to proceed. If you need Urgent Care, please remember that our Georgia location has been closed temporarily and all Urgent Care is being provided at our St. Albans location on the NMC campus.
