Our Story

Highlights of Our First Ten Years 

We could do nothing without the willing hearts and hands of those in our community, and we are keenly aware of how blessed we are to be a part of Coweta County's thriving healthcare system. Having received support from so many friends of the Clinic, we are intentional in finding creative ways to give back. Our timeline highlights milestones in the Clinic’s history, the benchmarks that fulfill our strategic plan, and the mutually beneficial relationships that make Coweta County a better, healthier place to live.
