Ellijay, GA – Bethesda Community Clinic of Holly Springs has sent a mobile medical unit to Gilmer County once a month since February 2022 and is now relocating their monthly mobile clinic to the Gilmer County Health Department.
Krystal Sumner, Nurse Manager of the Gilmer County Health Department, said the mobile medical unit will be in the health department parking lot on the third Wednesday of each month from 10 AM to 2 PM, starting January 18. The health department address is 28 Southside Church Street, Ellijay, Georgia, 30540.
Bob Surrusco, BCC North Volunteer Coordinator, said the mobile medical clinic relocation and the partnership with the county health department will help provide a broader outreach to the community and enhance healthcare to those in need.
The mobile medical clinic, which previously operated in Ellijay opposite from the Faith, Hope, and Charity Store on Industrial Boulevard, offers free primary care to anyone who needs these services, including physicals, chronic care, medication, labs, and more. They also offer health education and mental health services as well as specialty referrals and patient assistance programs. Providers are bilingual, ensuring everyone is served, and all are welcome. No appointment is needed.
Bethesda Community Clinic was founded in 2011 and is a non-profit 501(c)3 primary care clinic providing low-cost and free healthcare for the uninsured. Prior to providing free healthcare in Gilmer County last year with their fully equipped mobile medical unit, they launched services in Cherokee and Cobb County in 2020, and they hope to expand their reach to surrounding counties.
