WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia - March 7, 2008 --Sentara’s new medical facility in New Town is now open. Sentara Medical Arts & Urgent Care at New Town, a nearly 50,000 square foot building located off Ironbound Road, houses several physician practices and full health services to support the medical needs of the residential and business community. Featuring expanded hours of operation, New Town Urgent Care opened for business on Saturday, March 1st. Doctors Philip Walter and James Majdic, now practicing as New Town Internal Medicine; Sentara’s Occupational Medicine Center and Coumadin Clinic; and expanded diagnostic and laboratory services opened on Monday, March 3rd.
Completing the grand opening will be two additional Sentara Medical Group practices - New Town Family Practice (formerly Williamsburg Family Practice), and Williamsburg Pediatric, Adolescent & Sports Medicine - who will begin seeing patients on Monday, March 10th.
“The services coming together in this new facility provide people who live work and play in New Town and greater Williamsburg a wonderful option for medical care,” says Dr. David R. Maizel, Vice President, Sentara Medical Group. “These physicians have been practicing in the community for many years and we are excited to have a building that optimally supports the quality care they provide.”
Employing a “timeshare” model that has been successful for access to specialists, Sentara Medical Arts & Urgent Care at New Town also provides flexible medical office space for other Sentara Medical Group specialist physicians who would like to operate a part time office in the Williamsburg area.
Diagnostic imaging services to include ultrasound, mammography, bone density and x-ray are also available for patients of the onsite practices.
New Town Urgent Care is relocating from the Williamsburg Crossing Shopping Center. The office features a walk-in clinic, capable of handling outpatient procedures and minor emergencies; injuries; illness; and school and sports physicals, among other services. The new facility will maintain its onsite lab services to expedite medical diagnosis and care plans. Located within the Urgent Care are the Occupational Medicine Center and the Coumadin Clinic.
Doctors Maurice Graham, Linda Gottfried, Steven Mares, Dan Via and Jennifer Altman with Williamsburg Pediatric, Adolescent & Sports Medicine administer care to children from newborns through college years. This new office provides separate entrances and lounge areas for “sick” patients, “well” patients and teenage patients. In addition, this new office features a “teen clinic” which provides services specific to teens’ needs.
The physicians of Williamsburg Pediatric, Adolescent & Sports Medicine also provide all inpatient care to the newborn nursery and pediatric patients at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center. The group recently opened a satellite office at the Geddy Outpatient Center on the hospital’s campus as well.
Doctors Thomas Powers, Jr., John Ball III, and Ronald Grossman of New Town Family Practice and doctors Philip Walter and James Majdic of New Town Internal Medicine are also accepting new patients.
