ChoiceOne Urgent Care (ChoiceOne) in partnership with Gwinnett Medical Center would like to invite the public to family-friendly grand opening events starting Thursday, July 11 until the official opening on Monday, July 15. Superior patient-centered care will be provided in a spa-like environment at the new center conveniently located on 2745 Loganville Hwy., Loganville, GA 30052.

"We are excited about the opportunity to open a ChoiceOne Urgent Care center in the Grayson community. Growing our footprint in Gwinnett County will allow us to expand our mission of superior patient experience that is convenient to the communities in which patients live and work while providing outstanding care coordination in partnership with Gwinnett Medical Center," said Butch Marino, CEO of ChoiceOne.

For patients who need quick access to care for illnesses and injuries that are non-emergent, but still need immediate medical care, urgent cares are an excellent and cost-effective solution. "We want to help individuals gain access to high-quality affordable care, so they can get back to doing the things they enjoy, and that includes providing athletes the care they need and getting them back on the field and keeping families healthy," said Marino. ChoiceOne clinical teams see patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., including most holidays. Furthermore, for added convenience, patients are offered the ability to check-in online before arriving at the urgent care center.

"As part of our ongoing commitment to providing excellent healthcare to our community, we're continually working to make access to care more convenient. Over the past decade, we have partnered with like-minded organizations to provide primary care, specialty care, and urgent care services in areas such as Hamilton Mill, Suwanee, and Sugar Hill, and today, we are excited to partner with ChoiceOne to bring urgent care to the Grayson community," said Phil R. Wolfe, CEO of Gwinnett Medical Center.

The new urgent care center will be led by Associate Medical Director Sang Dao, MD, a graduate from GMC's Gwinnett Medical Education program. The center will feature private exam rooms, a triage area, and state-of-the-art equipment, including an on-site x-ray facility. Providers at the centers will be able to diagnose and treat non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, such as colds, flu, broken bones, infections, and sprains. In addition, expanded services include preoperative evaluations, sports physicals, concussion management, and occupational health services, including pre-employment physicals, drug testing, and workers' compensation.

ChoiceOne is celebrating the opening with a "Come Meet Your New Neighbors" community event at the Grayson center on Saturday, July 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The public is invited to meet with center teammates and get a sneak peek tour of the new Grayson center. Refreshments will be provided and family fun for all including food trucks and inflatables. Also, from Thursday, July 11 to Saturday, July 13 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., complimentary sports physicals and concussion baselines tests will be offered. Lastly, at the official opening on Monday, July 15, free gifts will be provided to the first 50 individuals that visit the center.
