Camilla-- A large crowd gathered this afternoon to celebrate the groundbreaking for a $2.6 million facility. Eighteen exam rooms will be housed in the building, half of which will be used for primary care by Dr. Josh Reams, and his partner, Dr. Stephen Rubendall. "That's part of the reason we came down here, to provide good primary care and now we have the facility to make that happen," Rubendall says.
Reams adds, "People come in just when they need to, sometimes they can live from emergency to emergency. I think that's a big problem in a lot of places in particular here. I think its important that people get regular screenings."
The other half of the facility will fill another important healthcare need in Mitchell county. It will serve as a multi-specialty clinic for doctors all over the area to see patients. "It will also give specialists an opportunity to practice that has enough space and equipment that they need," explains Rubendall.
Ultimately, the new facility will maximize both primary and specialty care for the people of Mitchell county. "It will give them a better quality of life, better medical community without having to drive elsewhere," says Mark Kimball, Administrator of Mitchell County Hospital.
Administrators say perhaps one of the best features of the facility is its flexibility to allow more growth in the future. Construction will begin after the new year. They plan to open the facility next fall.
