Amid cheers that were louder than the beeps and whirs of bulldozers and backhoes, Harbin Clinic physicians and executives turned fresh earth with golden shovels as a crowd of 100 people gathered to celebrate a brand new era for Harbin Clinic Cartersville.
The groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday marked the building of a new clinic located at 200 Gentilly Boulevard, right next door to the current Harbin Clinic Cartersville. The new 34,000 square-foot building is expected to be finished in late summer of 2019 and will house both new and expanded specialties.
“This is a fantastic day for Harbin Clinic and Northwest Georgia,” said Dr. Maxwell Prempeh, Assistant Medical Director for Bartow County. “We’re increasing our ability to care for more people and families, providing excellent medicine with more space and more specialties. This is the future of Harbin Clinic.”
The new addition is the latest example of the health organization’s focus on growing its services in Bartow County, echoed Harbin Clinic CEO Kenna Stock.
“We’re not only expanding the breadth of our specialties offered in the area, but we’re aiming to nurture the wellness of the community by hosting healthy events for families and increasing our presence in the area overall,” said Stock.
A Cornerstone of Care for the Community
This year, the United Way of Bartow county added Harbin Clinic as the title sponsor for the Harbin Clinic Turkey Trot 5K & Health Wobble. The event is slated for November 17, and registration for the event is going on now. Details are available at harbinclinic.com/turkeytrot.
