Ribbon-cutting held for new Urgent MD facility here



Though it has already been open for several weeks, the ceremonial ribbon-cutting for Washington’s office of Urgent MD was held at its location on Gordon Street across from Wills Memorial Hospital. Holding and cutting the ribbon are staff members (l-r) Jessica Pettay, Veronica Williams, Dawn Welborn, D’Layne Deas, and Bruce Bailey along with Dr. and Mrs. Gene Pollock, Dr. John Oester, and Destiny Biggs. A large crowd turned out for the event and enjoyed refreshments after the ceremony. Listed as a “primary care office,” Urgent MD is more like the old physicians’ offices used to be, according to Bailey, offering basic care and some procedures. The office currently sees over 20 patients per day and is considering extending its hours and being open on weekends. The event was sponsored by the Washington-Wilkes Chamber of Commerce.
