Mercy Care North moves to Chamblee
The Buford Highway corridor is home to a diverse population, many of whom are hard-working immigrant families. For 15 years, Mercy Care North, located in the Northeast Plaza Shopping Center, has served the working poor of this community. Mercy Care North provides care to 3,300 patients per year – which amounts to more than 11,000 office visits – yet demand for affordable comprehensive primary care far exceeds the clinic’s capacity.
To meet the great need for healthcare services in this part of Atlanta, Mercy Care will open a new 45,000-square foot facility in February 2017. Service capacity will more than triple, making primary care for adults and children, behavioral health, dental and eye care as well as health education available for thousands more each year.
