VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A Valdosta hospital celebrates the first anniversary of its youth and pediatric clinic.

Since Smith Northview opened its Youth and Pediatric After Hours Clinic. They've seen more than 5,500 patients.

The CEO says the clinic is an important community resource, especially in this down economy.

"The YPAC gives the people in the community, the parents an opportunity to take their kids and see a pediatrician, a lot of times their own pediatrician they're currently seeing without having to miss a day's work," said Smith Northview Hospital CEO Jim Matney.

The hospital says the clinic supports the area's population growth. It's open Monday through Thursday nights and Saturdays.
