CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Southern West Virginia Health System, a Lincoln Primary Care Center company, opened its first Kanawha County-based facility in South Charleston on Friday.
The new 15,900-square-foot health care center was built to offer comprehensive family medicine, urgent care, women's health services, X-ray services and laboratory services as well as an on-site pharmacy that features a drive-through window.
Located at 1563 Sand Plant Road in South Charleston, just off Corridor G near Alum Creek, the center was built using $3.5 million in funding from the Affordable Care Act's Capital Development grant program.
"We are pleased about becoming a part of the Kanawha County community," said Brian Crist, chief executive officer at Lincoln Primary Care Center and Southern West Virginia Health System.
"Southern West Virginia Health System - Sand Plant represents an important step in our goal of improving access to quality, affordable healthcare to the people of South Charleston and beyond," Crist said.
The center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be staffed by Dr. Chad Adkins, nurse practitioners Lisa Queen and Jacqui Ranson, and pharmacists Joey Anderson and Jerry Skeenes.
