Uniontown’s new medical clinic is open for patients as of May 4.
The staff has been in the building for a month, working on the accreditation process which was completed.
“There was a soft opening for four weeks,” Medical Assitant Lori Reith said. “We have seen 20 patients.”
The official title of the facility is the Girard Medical Center of Uniontown Clinic.
The building is located south of the USD 235 football field, at 401 Fifth Street. The phone number is 620-756-4111.
Clinic hours are 8 a.m to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The clinic is closed each day between noon and 1 p.m.
Reith is in the clinic on Tuesdays doing bookkeeping, she said. “I can schedule appointments, answer questions and fill out new patient forms.”
Stephanie Hallacy is the nurse practitioner and Reith is the medical assistant of the clinic. Candi Adams is the director of clinic operations, with Dr. Adam Paoni the medical director.
Hallacy is a family practice nurse practitioner, who will be offering primary care to the community in western Bourbon County.
Hallacy has worked for Girard Medical Center since 2013 as a nurse practitioner in their clinics as well as its walk-in clinic, she said in a prior interview.
From 2006-2014 she was a flight nurse for EagleMed.
Prior to that, she worked as a registered nurse in an intensive care unit in Oklahoma from 1994 – 2006.
