Health Clinic Reopens Its Doors
The Little Clinic moves out of Publix and becomes The HealthCaring Clinic to better serve the community.
Cartersville Patch recently sat down with the clinic’s director of marketing, Lisa Laub, to learn more about the clinic. Here's what we asked and she answered.
Q: What is the history of the clinic?
A: For the past five years, we have been operating under the name The Little Clinic inside Publix Supermarket providing quality, convenient and affordable healthcare for minor illness and injuries on a walk in basis to ages 18 months and up. During that time we have developed a lot of community relationships and have a great patient following. We are very appreciative of the loyalty the Cartersville community has shown us and decided to continue operations directly across the street from Publix. We still offer the same quality, convenient and affordable healthcare but now in a new state of the art facility.
Q: What does the new facility have that the old one did not?
A: We now have three exam rooms instead of one, additional staff, expanded services and a children’s play area.
Q: What treatments and services do you offer?
A: We treat common illnesses such as allergy symptoms, ear infections, skin conditions, sprains and strains, colds and flues, just to name a few. We also offer vaccinations and physical exams such as camp physicals, Department of Transportation physicals, sports physicals and pre-employment screenings. We have additional services as well, such as health screenings (blood sugar, cholesterol and lipid panels), pregnancy testing, ear wax and wart removal and more!
Q: What’s behind the new name of the clinic?
A: The name “HealthCaring Clinic” has a very special meaning behind it. It reflects our commitment to the community, which is to put the caring back into health care, one patient at a time.
Q: How are you spreading the news that new clinic has opened? Any events planned?
A: The Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting was Aug. 16, but our Grand Opening Celebration is Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be in conjunction with the Main Street East Shopping Plaza's tenant appreciation day. There will be drawings, spin art for the kids, popcorn and cotton candy. The HealthCaring Clinic will offer face painting and free health screenings, including blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol testing, while supplies last.
The HealthCaring Clinic is staffed by board-certified nurse practitioners and is open seven days a week. It accepts insurance but also offers services at affordable prices, with most starting at only $69. The hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit the website or call the clinic at 678-535-1170.
