Northeast Georgia Health System is opening a new urgent care location in Dahlonega on Monday.
The center is located in front of Home Depot in the Chestatee Village Shops II on Longbranch Road, at the corner of Ga. 400 and Ga. 60.
Urgent Care Dahlonega will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
The center’s physicians and practitioners will treat illnesses or injuries that need immediate attention but are not life-threatening.
In addition to a Lumpkin County ribbon-cutting event at 11 a.m. Tuesday, the location will hold a grand opening 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 14, which will include free health screenings, carnival rides, food and games.
No appointment is necessary at NGHS’ Urgent Care centers, and most major insurance plans are accepted. Urgent Care Dahlonega will accept patients 6 months and older and provide access to a referral network of more than 500 physicians if specialty care is needed.
NGHS also recently opened a Buford location of the Imaging Center of Northeast Georgia Medical Center. The new imaging center is at the corner of Ga. 20 and Gravel Springs Road. It is designed with a spa-like atmosphere, according to the health system.
