Atlanta (Dec. 9, 2021) – Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet acquired respected urgent care operator Fairview Urgent Care in Ellenwood. This brings Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet’s network to 34 locations throughout Georgia.
The new Ellenwood location is located at 4475 West Village Parkway, and is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fairview Urgent Care was an established healthcare leader in the community with experienced physicians and support staff serving the walk-in urgent care needs of patients in the area. The center will be rebranded as Piedmont Urgent Care.
“Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet is proud to expand our services into Ellenwood,” said WellStreet CEO Lisa Mikkelsen. “We are excited to welcome the Fairview Urgent Care team and to add to our services in Clayton County. We share the same commitment to providing compassionate and high-quality urgent care services to every patient, close to home.”
Piedmont Healthcare partnered with WellStreet Urgent Care in 2014. WellStreet’s providers are members of the Piedmont Clinic, which has more than 2,700 physician members. Piedmont Urgent Care offers patients shorter wait times and higher patient satisfaction. Piedmont Urgent Care also offers COVID-19 same-day PCR, rapid, and antibody testing at all locations.
Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet provides virtual visits and walk-in treatment for non-life-threatening illness and injury seven days a week, with extended hours nights and weekends, and are an excellent alternative to busy emergency departments and when traditional primary care offices are not open.
