New urgent care center set to open



Doctors, nurse practitioners, x-ray technicians and medical assistants will be employed at Hillcrest.

“Typically each Hillcrest center has around 13 to 14 full-time employees,” Souza said. “We are currently hiring for positions at the Milledgeville location. We will be conducting interviews [today], so if people are interested they can go online and apply.”

Souza first opened a Hillcrest Urgent Care center in Dublin in 2008 followed by a location in Eastman a year later. Currently an urgent care center is under construction in Albany and is slated to open in September.

“We’re pretty much done here. We have to clean up, put some finishing touches and get equipment installed,” he said of the local Hillcrest location. “This space is about 3,000 square-feet, and we’re set up enough so that when we are busy, we can have two providers seeing patients.”

Milledgeville’s only urgent care center will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

“We’re very familiar with the Milledgeville area because we have a lot of friends in the medical community here, so we were aware of the fact that there was a need for an urgent care center,” Souza said. “Our main focus is providing high quality, prompt care at an affordable price. Excellent customer service is the hallmark of our brand of care. I’m excited and looking forward to being close to the lake and working with patients in this area.”
