CHARLOTTE – Novant Health opened 12 clinics and added 15 physicians within the greater Charlotte market during the first quarter of 2019.
The new clinics include start-ups like Novant Health Occupational Medicine – Matthews, Novant Health Austin Village Family Medicine and Novant Health Urgent Care – Mint Hill.
“The population of the Charlotte region is surging, year over year, and our commitment to ensuring our communities have access to care when and where they need it is aligned with this growth,” said Saad Ehtisham, president and chief operating officer of Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center. “At a certain point, you can only add so many beds to an over-capacity hospital or reduce an emergency room’s wait time through efficiency so much. Real improvements come with a healthier population, which is what our new physicians and new clinics will help Novant Health achieve.”
New physicians include Dr. Harriet Davis of Novant Health Mint Hill Family Medicine and Dr. Sharien Mahtani of Novant Health Inpatient Care Specialists, Mint Hill.
“The addition of these new physicians and clinics do not merely represent an expanded footprint, they represent expanded access throughout Mecklenburg County to advanced, quality care,” Ehtisham said.
