TALLADEGA, Ala. – The City of Talladega is set to be home to one of east-central Alabama’s leading urgent care providers, MainStreet Family Urgent Care.
The plan has been in the works for nearly a year according to the company’s marketing director Betsy Stewart.
The clinic, which is growing rapidly, already operates in nine different facilities throughout the state. The Talladega facility will be the tenth.
Stewart said opening an office in Talladega was an easy decision. She said she feels Talladega and the surrounding areas are growing and the people in the are should not have to travel to other areas to get health care. To Stewart, opening a new facility is about convenience for the people of Talladega.
“There is a great hospital here. But people need a place to go when they aren’t facing a life-threatening circumstances,” she said. “We want to help people stay close to home and if we can do that it will be a win for everyone.”
The new 3,200 square-foot facility will feature multiple exam rooms, on site lab testing and have X-ray capabilities. The clinic will not only provide treatment for everyday sicknesses, but it will also perform a number of diagnostic tests and minor procedures.
