New facility brings multiple new health services to Darien
DARIEN, Ga., February 12, 2014–Optim Heathcare–Darien is now open and physicians are seeing patients at the new facility, which provides a range of medical services to the community.
The new clinic will offer physician expertise in multiple specialties, including orthopedics, interventional pain management, neurosurgery and women’s health. Two of the physicians, John P. George, MD and Joseph C. Hegarty, MD, FIPP, were recently honored among the best in their field in “Best of Savannah, 2013” by Savannah Magazine. Optim was also recognized last year by Healthgrades, the leading online resource that helps consumers search, compare and connect with physicians and hospitals, which named Optim Medical Center-Tattnall in Reidsville location one of America’s 100 Best hospitals for joint replacement.
“Being born and raised in Darien, I am excited to be coming back home to work and treat people in this community,” said Dr. George. “I’m proud to lead the orthopedics practice of the new clinic and I know Optim will bring a superior standard of care to Darien and McIntosh County.”
The official grand opening will take place on Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 14 from 11 a.m. to noon. There will be an official ribbon cutting with Mandy Harrison, Executive Director of the Darien-McIntosh Chamber of Commerce, free giveaways, and a chance to meet the new physicians and physician assistants.
“The opening of Optim in Darien means a lot for our community,” said Mayor Hugh “Bubba” Hodge. “Having a high quality clinic which specializes in orthopedics so close to home will undoubtedly improve quality-of-life for many of our friends and neighbors.”
“Any time a new business opens in Darien or McIntosh County, we are excited,” added Harrison. “Even more so when that business is about helping people improve their health and gain better access to treatment. We couldn’t be happier to have Optim as part of our community.”
