BCHC Family Medicine to open Jan. 13The Buchanan County Health Center’s Family Medicine Jesup facility will begin offering patient care on Monday, Jan. 13.
Located at 211 South Street West in Jesup, the new family practice office is operated by Buchanan County Health Center of Independence.
This 4,525 square foot medical building will provide the residents of Jesup and surrounding communities with additional local access to primary care services for all ages. BCHC Jesup Family Medicine will operate in partnership as an affiliate of UnityPoint Health. Through this partnership, BCHC Jesup Family Medicine will benefit from UnityPoint Health’s broad expertise in operating family practice clinics. This partnership will also provide the new family practice clinic access to the use of EPIC for its electronic medical records, which will allow for easy information sharing with BCHC and UnityPoint Health facilities.
BCHC Jesup Family Medicine will offer patients the opportunity for same-day appointments, annual wellness exams, disease prevention and management, and diagnosis treatment for common illness and injuries. The clinic will also feature lab and X-ray services. BCHC Jesup Family Medicine will be staffed from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Fridays.
Patients will have the opportunity to establish their care with five providers, including Jesup natives, Sarah DeVore, ARNP, Christy Weber, ARNP and Alyssa Woods, ARNP. David Fahey, DO and William Schmitt, DO will also see patients at the family medicine clinic weekly, along with continuing their primary practice at Medical Associates of BCHC. Patients who currently see Sarah DeVore, ARNP at Medical Associates of BCHC in Independence may choose to continue their care with Sarah at the beginning of 2020 in the new Jesup location or may continue to see providers at Medical Associates of BCHC.
“I am excited and humbled to be joining a great team of professionals who plan to serve Jesup and the surrounding communities through healthcare,” said Sarah (Weber) DeVore, ARNP. “Having grown up in rural Jesup and currently residing in this community, I look forward to becoming reacquainted with members of our fine city and meeting many new families and residents. I also welcome current patients to continue their care with me in Jesup after the beginning of the new year at our Jesup location.”
“I am very excited to start this new journey with Buchanan County Health Center and the Jesup clinic, and I am honored to be part of this organization,” Alyssa Woods said. “I look forward to creating relationships with patients, which will allow me to provide quality care to my patients and the community.”
In addition to the services provided at the BCHC Jesup Family Medicine clinic, Ryan Pharmacy, based out of Independence, will provide daily prescription medication drop-off at the clinic and will also offer free home delivery of medications to Jesup residents.
