Augusta Health to open urgent care center and primary care office in Crozet

FISHERSVILLE, Virginia— As a part of Augusta Health's strategic plan, Journey 2025, and its commitment to the community to expand and enhance access to outpatient services throughout the region, Augusta Health will open an Urgent Care Center and an Augusta Medical Group Primary Care Practice in Crozet. Because the location is an expansion of the current Convenient Care Center, that center has been closed for the renovations. The Urgent Care Center-Primary Care practice is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2021.

"We've been a part of the Crozet community at this location as a Convenient Care Center for a number of years," says John Mack, PA, Chief Operating Officer of Augusta Medical Group, "but the type of healthcare services needed in the community is growing and changing. So we are truly excited to expand to meet those needs with a new Urgent Care Center as well as a Primary Care office in Crozet."

Scott Just, MD, President of Augusta Medical Group, adds, "We will miss our patients during the renovation period, but will welcome them back soon with expanded services and the high quality of care they've come to expect."

Renovations of both the interior and exterior of the site begin in December, 2020, and will result in a 4800 square foot space with 10 exam rooms and one procedure room. Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging—with new digital x-ray equipment—and Laboratory will be included in the Urgent Care Center. The primary care office will provide the full scope of primary care services. Additionally, specialty providers will rotate schedules in the planned multi-specialty offices within the practice. Staff will include both physicians and physician assistants.

Augusta Medical Group is the employed physician group of Augusta Health. Augusta Health is an independent, community-owned, not-for-profit hospital whose mission is to promote the health and well-being of its community through access to excellent care. Over the years, Augusta Health has been recognized by many external rating organizations: 100 Top Hospitals in America, HealthGrades' America's 50 Best Hospitals, US News and World Report Best Regional Hospital, and most recently Leapfrog Top Hospital 2020.
