Atrium Health Navicent, Central Georgia Technical College to Hold Ribbon Cutting to Celebrate New On-campus Health Clinics

CGTC is first Georgia technical college to offer on-campus student health services

Atrium Health Navicent and Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Aug. 29 to celebrate the opening of new on-campus health clinics at the college’s Macon and Warner Robins locations. CGTC is the first technical college in the state to offer on-campus health care services to students.

After many years of cooperation in support of education and training in health sciences, the two organizations are strengthening their partnership by providing students access to medical services without having to leave campus in Macon and Warner Robins. Students at the College’s Milledgeville campus will have access to services at an Atrium Health Navicent clinic less than a mile away, located at 821 N. Cobb Street in Milledgeville.

Collaboratively, Delvecchio Finley, president of Atrium Health Navicent, and Dr. Ivan Allen, president of CGTC, developed an agreement that reduces barriers to health care and ensures CGTC students have access to quality care. Services are supported by the student wellness semester fee approved by the student body leadership.

"We are thrilled to officially open on-campus clinics, bringing to life a momentous partnership with Atrium Health Navicent that underscores our unwavering commitment to supporting the needs of our students," said Dr. Allen. "This day signifies both Atrium and CGTC's shared desire to address the health care needs of students and dedication to our future workforce. We listened to our students' request for health services, and through unique collaboration, arrived at a remarkable solution. We encourage students to use these indispensable health services and visit the clinics as needed."

Atrium Health Navicent is part of Advocate Health, which is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, and operates on-campus health care for nearly half a dozen colleges in North Carolina.

“On-campus clinics help eliminate barriers such as transportation and additional time away from school or work which may prevent someone from getting the health care they need,” Finley said. “Thanks to Central Georgia Technical College for partnering to help improve the health of our community.”

Faculty and staff members also will have access to clinic services which will be open each class day during the week. Services include wellness exams, physicals and drug screens, vaccinations, acute and primary care for illnesses and chronic conditions, and women’s health care.
