St. Joseph’s/Candler Building New Medical Facility in Richmond Hill To Serve The Growing Community

Friday, March 5th, 2021

St. Joseph’s/Candler broke ground today on a new Urgent Care facility that will expand to provide more needed medical services for this growing community.

This Urgent Care will improve access to affordable medical services that are unpredicted and unscheduled that everybody faces.

It is part of a three-year strategic plan St. Joseph’s/Candler launched in 2019 to expand urgent care and healthcare access into the region. The plan began with a location in the new St. Joseph’s/Candler Pooler Campus and Richmond Hill is the next location on our list.

“St. Joseph’s/Candler has been in Richmond Hill for almost 30 years and as the community grows, we are growing with them to meet their healthcare needs,” said Paul P. Hinchey, President & CEO of St. Joseph’s/Candler. “Urgent Care practices are important because they can handle most medical surprises and are far more affordable than Emergency Departments.”

The details

  • The project is a $4 million investment in the community.

  • Will have a $500,000 annual payroll.

  • The building will be 10,000 square feet. 

  • The Urgent Care will open in early September.

  • Phase II will add a primary care or specialty offices, whichever is of greater need for the community.

  • Location: 12800 Hwy 144, in front of Publix.
