Guilford County’s former Evans-Blount Clinic was established by Guilford County government and its partners in 2010 to provide low-cost medical care to residents in East Greensboro.
While the clinic is no longer offering those services, county health officials are trying to get the word out to the public that there are nearby options.
The Guilford County Health Department, Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine and other local medical providers are informing residents where they can find affordable and reliable medical care elsewhere in East Greensboro.
Alternative options for medical services – as well as their distance from the former clinic – can be found at: https://www.guilfordcountync.gov/Home/Components/News/News/3140/16?backlist=%2f.
Most of the options are within five miles of the former clinic.
Guilford County Health Director Dr. Iulia Vann said this week that it’s extremely important that the county keep providing access to affordable healthcare to all residents. She said that is it critical for the overall health of our community.
“The Evans-Blount clinic was a staple of the East Greensboro community for many years,” she said, adding that it was a trusted source of quality, affordable care. “We want Guilford County residents – East Greensboro residents, in particular – to know that options for quality medical services remain available through Guilford County Public Health and our community medical partners.”
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine Chief Executive Officer Michelle Lewis also commented on the current attempt to fill the void left by the closing of the former Evans- Blount Clinic.
“We believe that no Guilford County resident should be without accessible, affordable, and quality healthcare,” Lewis said. “We have offices throughout Guilford County in Greensboro and High Point to meet the growing needs of our community.”
