On May 24th, a crowd of employees and friends of Harbin Clinic gathered during a blustery afternoon for a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house event to celebrate the new Family Medicine & Pediatrics Adairsville building located at 115 North Central Avenue.
Dr. Sara Harbin Pickett and Dr. Robert Sullivan cut the red ribbon to a chorus of cheers, marking a new era of caring completely for Adairsville and Bartow County.
After the ceremony, Dr. Harbin Pickett and Dr. Sullivan addressed the crowd of more than 50 community members, thanking them for their support and pledging dedicated service to the families of Adairsville.
“This new building will allow me to better partner with parents to keep the babies, toddlers and the children of Adairsville happy and healthy throughout their childhoods,” said Dr. Harbin Pickett.
“As your caregivers, we want to make you feel welcome,” said Dr. Sullivan, who was also celebrating his 20th year of practicing in the community. “It is our hope that all patients will feel at home in this new facility.”
Adairsville Mayor Kenneth Carson and Cindy Williams, CEO of the Cartersville-Bartow Chamber of Commerce, noted Harbin Clinic’s contributions to Adairsville and Bartow County.
Carson, speaking with the passion of a preacher, praised the care he has experienced as a long-time patient of the practice. “Dr. Sullivan, Dr. Pickett and the staff are committed, compassionate and consistent when it comes to service. We are blessed to have them in this great city.”
“What I see from the Harbin Clinic team day in and day out is beyond just the health of the body,” said Williams. “They care for the health of their patients, so that their patients may then care for the community.”
Following the speeches, attendees enjoyed refreshments and toured the new facility. The 10,140 square-foot campus has an on-site lab, 10 exam rooms and an abundance of parking, with space for expansion as the practice grows.
