If Turner County residents became sick over the weekend, they used to have to drive nearly half an hour to get to the nearest hospital, but that just changed with the opening of a new clinic. Ashburn Family Practice and Pediatrics held its grand opening Wednesday, marking it as Turner County’s first urgent care clinic. The clinic is currently taking patients of all ages for both urgent care and other appointments, including immunizations, wellness checks and sports physicals. “This is a great opportunity for the community to have care that’s local, easy to access, and they don’t have to drive 30 to 40 minutes to a hospital or clinic out of town,” family nurse practitioner Mimi Wright said.
The clinic is located at 317 East Washington Avenue in Ashburn. It’s open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and they also offer a call service 24 hours a day for any medical questions.
