A new healthcare facility is opening up in South Charleston.
Southern West Virginia Health System, a Lincoln Primary Care Center company, cut the ribbon on its first ever Kanawha County facility Friday.
As a federally qualified health center, it ensures the availability of healthcare service to all, regardless of ability to pay or insurance status. The center will offer urgent care, women's health and laboratory services, to name a few. A retail pharmacy will also be available.
"This has been a lot of work,” Brian Crist, CEO of Lincoln Primary Care, said. “It's been a long journey, but we are truly excited to be here, and this facility, we have 12 throughout the region. This facility being new and modern, it's one of the nicer health care facilities around."
The facility will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 pm.
