The clinic will be located in the Madison Square Building on Camden St., and will provide family medicine, pediatric and urgent care services.

“CommuniCare is excited to grow our services and strengthen our partnership with Baptist Medical Center. In this partnership, CommuniCare Health Centers will provide primary and urgent care services to individuals with non-emergent conditions for their care versus going to the Emergency Room. As well as being a medical home for those patients being discharged from the hospital that do not have an established primary care provider for their follow up care,” said Paul Nguyen, President and CEO of CommuniCare Health Centers.
