SANFORD – FirstHealth of the Carolinas has expanded its services in Lee County with the opening of the new FirstHealth Lee Campus located at 2919 Beechtree Drive in Sanford.
In addition to primary care, fitness and other specialty services, the campus houses the newest FirstHealth Convenient Care location, providing yet another location for urgent, but non-life threatening medical care for Lee County residents. A FirstHealth Convenient Care location is also located in Tramway next to Davison’s Steaks.
The office is located inside of the medical office building on the FirstHealth campus, which is conveniently located off of 15-501, and began accepting walk-in patients on Monday, Oct. 1. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
“We are excited about the opening of our sixth convenient care clinic,” says Dan Barnes, D.O., president of FirstHealth Physician Group. “Our Tramway convenient care clinic has been well-received by residents since its opening in January of 2017. Considering current health care trends and patient needs, we felt including a convenient care clinic on the FirstHealth Lee Campus would best suit the needs of residents in the northern area of Lee County.”
FirstHealth Convenient Care serves adults and children with non-emergency medical needs including such ailments as upper respiratory infection, strep, mild asthma, flu and urinary tract infection as well as minor injuries such as cuts, burns and broken bones that have not broken the skin.
Imaging services, immunizations and sports physicals are also among the various services offered, as well as flu shots.
“Our convenient care locations are available to provide easy access to services that fall between the needs of a true emergency – one that requires an emergency room visit – and the preventive care of a primary care provider. They offer a ‘one-stop option’ for care provided by a professional medical staff that specializes in unscheduled urgent care,” adds Dr. Barnes.
Providers at the Lee Campus location in include physician assistants Cory Anderson, PA-C, and Thomas Kozesky, PA-C. The Lee Campus is located off of 15-501 on Beechtree Drive next to New Hope Church. Convenient Care can be found inside the medical office building on the first floor.
