ACH announces new doctor for complete care clinic

Atmore Community Hospital announced Sept. 28 that Layla Lundquist-Smith M.D. has joined the staff of the ACH Complete Care.

Lundquist-Smith will begin seeing patients beginning in December 2020.

“Everyone at Atmore Community Hospital is thrilled to be able to add another quality physician to our already outstanding physician staff,” said Suzanne McGill, interim hospital administrator and director of nursing. “We are committed to providing the best possible care in the Atmore area. With the addition of Dr. Lundquist-Smith we are better prepared to effectively meet the needs of our community.”

Although new to the ACH Complete Care Clinic, Lundquist-Smith is already familiar with Atmore and the Atmore hospital through the hospital’s prior affiliation with Baptist Hospital as well as growing up in the Molino, Fla. area just south of the Florida line.

“It is really exciting to come to Atmore, help build a new clinic and help grow the capabilities of Atmore Community Hospital,” Lundquist-Smith said in a release. “I look forward to getting to know my patients.”

Lundquist-Smith received her doctor of medicine from Florida State University College of Medicine in Tallahassee, Fla. and completed her residency at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, where she served as the chief resident. Prior to graduating from the Florida State University College of Medicine, Lundquist-Smith graduated from Florida State with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences.

The ACH Complete Care Clinic will be located on Laurel Street behind ACH Family Physicians. The opening date is tentatively scheduled for December 2020. Contact information and information to register as a new patient will be communicated in the upcoming weeks.

A meet and greet is scheduled for December 3 from 4-6 p.m. at the Atmore Community Hospital Complete Care Clinic.

The public is invited to attend to meet Lundquist-Smith.
