FirstHealth of the Carolinas will open its third convenient care clinic in Lee County at 3110 S. Horner Blvd on Aug. 16.

“We are thrilled to further serve the Lee County community with a third convenient care clinic,” said Dan Barnes, D.O., president of the FirstHealth Physician Group. “Our Tramway and Beechtree Drive locations in Sanford have been well received, and we believe this new location will greatly benefit residents seeking care in a busy area of the county.”

The new location, which is FirstHealth’s tenth overall convenient care clinic, will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily to serve adults and children with non emergency medical needs such as upper respiratory infection, strep, mild asthma, flu, urinary tract infections, and minor injuries such as cuts, burns and some broken bones.

The clinic will also offer imaging services, immunizations, and sports physicals.

James Liffrig, M.D., the medical director of FirstHealth Convenient Care, said continuing to provide residents with easy access to medical services is a top priority.

“As areas of Sanford continue to expand and grow, it is important that communities have an option for medical services that lie between the needs of a true emergency and the routine and preventative care of a primary care provider,” he said. “FirstHealth Convenient Care is happy to continue to offer unscheduled urgent care throughout North Carolina.”
