|HENRY COUNTY, GA- May 15, 2020—Henry County District V Commissioner Bruce Holmes is excited to announce the opening of the Piedmont Henry Primary Care office housed at the Fairview Urgent Care, a Nidus Development located in North Henry County. |
Piedmont Henry Hospital partnering with the medical community in Fairview is a collaborative effort that will continue the vision to make Fairview and District V a health and wellness community, an initiative in which Holmes has been developing for the past several years.
“I’m excited to see Piedmont physicians ready to open their doors next to Fairview Urgent Care. This venture with Nidus Development has taken some time, however we’re now setup to provide a variety of healthcare services to a quad-county community consisting of Henry, Dekalb, Rockdale and Clayton counties, which have been medically underserved for generations. After seeing my next-door neighbor pass in front of my eyes a few years ago, I immediately became aware of the lack of access to emergent and other specialty healthcare services in North Henry County, and at that time, Piedmont was in the process of taking over Henry Hospital,” said Holmes. “Since that time, they’ve been an extraordinary partner and supporter and have been outstanding in providing great healthcare to Henry County citizens and the surrounding areas. I’m excited for the future of this community and look forward to further infrastructure improvements with the upcoming widening of West Village Pkwy, Fairview Road and the new Fairview Public Safety Campus to be located on Fairview Road and Panola Rd. These SPLOST V projects along with the Panola Mountain Park Greenway Trail, which is currently under construction, align with the future growth of healthcare services in the area and our mission to further create and define a health and wellness community that citizens will enjoy for years to come.”
The new Piedmont Henry medical office is scheduled to open on June 1, 2020 with physicians Prathima Reddy, M.D. and Thiruvannathapur Krishnamoorthy, M.D., both of whom specialize in internal medicine.
“We are excited to open a primary care office in the Fairview section of Ellenwood,” said Lily Henson, M.D., CEO of Piedmont Henry Hospital. “It is a rapidly growing community. Providing better access to primary care allows us to deliver on Piedmont’s purpose, which is to make a positive difference in every life we touch.”
The new medical office is located 4477 West Village Parkway in Ellenwood.
