RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) - People in Bryan County now have more access to medical services.
St. Joseph's/Candler recently opened a medical office in Richmond Hill.
The healthcare provider actually opened an office in Richmond Hill in the 90s. It closed several years ago, but those with the medical group say with the growing number of people now living in Richmond Hill, they knew they needed to start offering services again.
The new medical office is located along Ford Avenue near Highway 17, right across the street from Charlie Graingers restaurant. The office has been renovated and includes nine exam rooms, two procedure rooms, and one full lab.
The executive director for the medical group says Bryan County continues to see a lot of growth, especially in its southern end - near Richmond Hill. He says more people are wanting healthcare services that are close by and convenient for them, and that's why they decided to open this office in Richmond Hill.
"We want to be able to meet their demands and not always have them drive into Savannah, so we wanted to be able to provide something that was local and regional to them," said Jackson Norton, Executive Director of Operations.
If you would like to learn more about this medical office, there will be an open house on Thursday, Jan. 31 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
