Newnan Medical Office Now Open to Patients

GEORGIA EXPANSION INITIATIVE

ATLANTA — Kaiser Permanente members who live or work in Coweta County now have a more convenient location to receive health care. The Newnan Medical Office — Kaiser Permanente’s first location in Coweta County — opened to patients this month.

The 7,100 square-foot facility, located at 203 Newnan Crossing Bypass, is a part of Kaiser Permanente’s ongoing initiative to improve access to health care for its 230,000 members in Georgia. Staffed by Belkis Pimentel, MD and Mark Becknell, MD of The Southeast Permanente Medical Group, the Newnan Medical Office offers internal medicine, pediatrics, as well as an on-site pharmacy. Additional specialties may be added.

“This medical office allows us to better serve our growing Kaiser Permanente membership in and around Coweta County,” said Peter Andruszkiewicz, president of Kaiser Permanente of Georgia. “We look forward to providing quality, affordable health care to residents of these communities for many years to come.”

Within the past year, Kaiser Permanente has opened medical offices in Douglasville, West Marietta, Snellville, Holly Springs, Lawrenceville, downtown Decatur and East Cobb.
