MedLink Georgia, a nonprofit Federally Qualified Community Health Center providing quality, professional healthcare to over 51,000 Georgians in rural areas and serving Northeast Georgian communities since 1979, held a groundbreaking ceremony on its new Banks County location at 10:00 am, October 13, 2022. The groundbreaking ceremony featured MedLink company representatives, local government and business leaders, Banks County Chamber of Commerce, and the general contractor.

The new 16,000 square-foot Banks County facility will offer primary healthcare for patients of all ages and will also allow for an expansion of services including an imaging center, behavioral health, in-house pharmacy, diabetes education and nutrition counseling, and a community training room for educational healthcare classes and community use. MedLink Georgia currently has 25 convenient locations providing a wide variety of patient care tailored to the needs of the community in which it serves.

Construction of the MedLink building is targeted for a July 2023 completion, with production beginning in mid-October. Pellicano Construction will serve as the general contractor on the project. MedLink Georgia will begin accepting applications this spring for the 30 new employment positions at the facility.
