Atrium Health Navicent Primary Care Fort Valley Celebrates Ribbon Cutting

Members of the community joined Atrium Health Navicent Primary Care Fort Valley, a facility of Atrium Health Navicent Peach, to celebrate a ribbon cutting ceremony March 14.

The facility opened its doors to patients in a new location, 201 Avera Drive in Fort Valley, on Jan. 8. The move has allowed the practice to expand its physical space and services to patients. Advantages to the new location include a larger space dedicated solely to primary care with an additional exam room, improved parking and handicapped accessibility. There also is a covered, drive-up entrance for patient convenience.

“Having access to a primary care provider close to home is crucial to maintaining overall health and wellness. We are proud to serve patients in Fort Valley and the surrounding community and have already heard from patients how much they like the new location,” said Laura Gentry, Atrium Health Navicent Peach CEO and vice president for Atrium Health’s Georgia market primary care service line.

Atrium Health Navicent Primary Care Fort Valley offers exceptional primary care for patients 18 and older. Services include preventative care such as routine physicals; women’s health such as gynecologic exams and birth control; sameday sick appointments; chronic disease management; senior care; laboratory services; minor surgical procedures; Georgia Department of Transportation physicals; and physicals for sports, school and employment. Guests at Thursday’s celebration participated in tours of the relocated facility.

Atrium Health Navicent Primary Care Fort Valley is staffed by Dr. Gorby Leon – who serves as the clinic’s medical director – and nurse practitioners Kasey Fish and Brittney Harris, and additional support teammates to ensure each patient receives personalized care.
