ACH officials said the new clinic is working in coordination with the hospital’s outpatient clinic to provide specialty services for the Atmore community. Patients wanting to make an appointment will need to make that appointment with the visiting physician’s office.

“We look forward to building upon our already outstanding outpatient schedule,” Lowery said. “We want to provide as many services here locally so our community has access to a variety of specialty care here at home.”

In addition to the ACH Specialty Care physicians, the outpatient department hosts visiting specialists in gastroenterology, nephrology, orthopedics and VA screenings. Cardiology and pulmonology clinics are being held on the second floor in the cardiopulmonary department.
