ELLAVILLE, GA (WALB) - With information from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center-

Phoebe Sumter Medical Center has closed a deal on land at 339 Broad Street in Ellaville, for the future home of the existing Phoebe Sumter Ellaville Primary Medicine Clinic.

The site is between Ameris Bank and Dollar General. "We are proud of the small-community feel that makes Phoebe Sumter unique, and our connection to Ellaville is definitely an extension of that. Our investment in this new clinic facility will create a space that visually represents our commitment to the high quality of care," said Phoebe Sumter CEO Brandi Lunneborg.

The clinic design will have additional space for classes and health events, like the diet and education workshops already offered. Access to primary care providers is a major focus for Phoebe, and the new clinic facility promises additional practice space for Jenny Hatcher, NP, and Julie Oliver, PA.

"We have been an integral part of this community for more than 10 years, and during that decade, our patients have become like family. We want everyone to know we are here to help them with their medical needs and concerns," said Julie Oliver, Physician Assistant at the Ellaville clinic. "We are excited to continue our long and rewarding relationship with our Ellaville neighbors as we move forward with this expansion."

Phoebe Sumter's Ellaville Primary Medicine Clinic is also a provider for the Georgia Farmworker Health Program which provides healthcare services in the clinic, and in the field for rural farmworkers in five surrounding counties.
