ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

The Tift Regional Health System officials say they will build a new facility for its HealthPlus Primary care clinic in Ashburn with the acquisition of three properties.

TRHS says it has outgrown its current building located on Washington Street, and has acquired three properties down the street from the existing location. The properties include the Mathews Furniture building, a residential home and a vacant lot.

The health system plans to construct a new 10,000-square-foot clinic building.

In a release, TRHS Director of Regional Physician Practice Management Andrea Heath said, "After conducting a community needs assessment for this area, we came to the conclusion that a bigger space was needed to better serve the residents of Ashburn and Turner County. We look forward to continue providing quality patient care to this community."

Plans are in place to clear the purchased properties before construction begins. TRHS says they will use community input to determine what the best use of the current building will be.
