Oakhurst Medical Centers, Inc. held its grand opening on Dec. 8 for its sixth location. The new facility is located in the Northlake Office Park professional building at 2295 Northlake Parkway, Suite 500, Atlanta.
The nonprofit primary health care centers have provided affordable, culturally sensitive and accessible healthcare to the indigent and underinsured residents of DeKalb, Fulton and Rockdale counties since 1980.
Oakhurst’s CEO Jeff Taylor was joined for the new center’s ribbon cutting ceremony by Board of Directors Vice Chair Daphne Byrd, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce President Katerina Taylor, Oakhurst founder Elizabeth Wilson and other officials.
The 7,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility offers 14 exam rooms and initially will focus on providing Family Medicine and OB/GYN services, officials said.
The facility was opened in partnership with the International Rescue Committee to address the growing population of the area’s underserved refugee population officials said. Oakhurst’s services are delivered by a diverse staff, representing nationalities that include Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, Rwanda, Somalia and the United States.
