Escambia County (AL) - Atmore Community Hospital Opens ACH Specialty Care in old MedPlus Building
Atmore Community Hospital (ACH) has announced that they have changed the name of the ACH MedPlus Building to ACH Specialty Care. The ACH Specialty Care Building will be home to visiting specialists and the hospital's general surgeon.
"We are in the process of looking at area physicians who have an interest in holding a clinic in Atmore," stated Brad Lowery, ACH Hospital Administrator. "As of today, we have Vascular Care, General Surgery, Gynecology, Nephrology and Podiatry. We are in the process of recruiting a staff surgeon and have been looking for several visiting specialties including, ENT, Urology, Oncology, and Dermatology."
Officials stated that the new clinic will work in coordination with the hospital's outpatient clinic to provide specialty services for the Atmore community. Patients wanting to make an appointment will need to make that appointment directly with the visiting physician's office.
"We look forward to building upon our already outstanding outpatient schedule," stated Lowery. "We want to provide as many services here locally so our community has access to a variety of specialty care here at home.
In addition to the ACH Specialty Care physicians, the Outpatient Department hosts visiting specialists in Gastroenterology, Nephrology, Orthopedics and VA Screenings. There are also Cardiology and Pulmonology Clinics held on the second floor in the Cardiopulmonary Department.
