Beginning Tuesday, March 24, Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic will take a burden off local emergency rooms and urgent care centers as those with broken bones and other injuries will receive access to the relief they need. The Carrollton location will be open until 9:00 p.m. to accommodate urgent care for orthopedic-related injuries only.
Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic CEO Ben Butler says, “This initiative was developed to provide additional support to Tanner Health System’s emergency room. It frees up their ER physicians and staff to care for COVID-19 patients and other serious medical issues, while redirecting orthopedic injuries to a less compromised environment.”
Physicians at Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic will rotate their after-hour shifts. President of Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic Dr. Greg Slappey adds, “We are here to support our colleagues at Tanner, the physicians in the ER, as well as several urgent care centers in the area; we know they are overwhelmed right now and we are trying to help.”
In addition to saving time and offering efficiency for patients, care at the clinic will be considerably less expensive than care received at the emergency room. Walk-ins are welcome with no appointment necessary.
Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic will be open seven days a week, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The clinic is located at 150 Clinic Avenue, Suite 101, Carrollton, Georgia.
