Grovetown public clinic closing today

  • Follow Latest News

A public health clinic near Grovetown will close its doors after today.

Columbia County clients of the Harlem/Grovetown Public Health Clinic on Euchee Creek Drive have been reassigned to clinics in Appling and Evans until a permanent facility, housing all Columbia County Health Department clinics, opens next year, said county Emergency and Operations Director Pam Tucker.

County officials made the decision in October to close the clinic because of state budget cuts, a low staff level and an unbalanced client load, Tucker said.

Construction on the $4 million health department is underway on William Few Parkway near Grovetown High School and is expected to open by spring, Tucker said.

I'm just waiting to be a fly

I'm just waiting to be a fly on the wall when they house employees from three crowded offices into one "new bldg" and see who lasts there. Sorry, I used to work there and I know what a bunch of women are like working together. But, if it keeps the doors open and children can go there and get there shots, WIC etc...it's a GREAT thing. I wish them the best. At least they've pulled it together enough to still have an operating clinic with the government budget cuts. Believe me it effects local staffing too.
