SGMC officials were reminding people Thursday about a major change about to happen
Starting July 18th, South Georgia Medical Center will convert the emergency department at the Smith Northview campus to an urgent care center.
Hospital officials said that will reduce ER wait times and save money for patients who can avoid the ER. The urgent care center will open at 10 a.m. Saturday and will be open until 9 p.m. every day
It will serve patients two years old and up.
