ATHENS, Al. – Huntsville Hospital Urgent Care is now open at 22175 Hwy. 72 next to Publix at Eastside Junction.
The healthcare team is led by Family Nurse Practitioner Joleen Hamilton, and Jeremy Urban, Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner. “Whether it’s a minor injury, vaccination, bad cold, or wellness care, it’s important for families to have a quality healthcare option that is comprehensive and affordable,” said Ellis Harris, Vice President of Huntsville Hospital Urgent Care centers.
