Medical Plaza 400 celebrated five years in Dawsonville this week with a Business After Hours event hosted by the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce. Medical Plaza 400 opened in April 2013 as a branch of Northeast Georgia Health System, a non-for-profit community health system that serves more than 18 counties in northeast Georgia with anchor hospital campuses in Gainesville, Braselton and Barrow. The over 25,00 square foot, two-story Dawsonville medical center hosts Northeast Georgia Physicians Group and an urgent care facility that is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. “When we first started out here on the western perimeter of our service area, we were a little bit nervous but I have to say how welcoming and how wonderful this community is,” said Jo Brewer, director of lab services for Medical Plaza 400, during the event. “My hope (when) we celebrated our opening was that this beautiful facility would end up being a place of healing and a place of hope and I think you’ll all agree we have achieved that.” State Representative Kevin Tanner, who has lived in Dawson County all his life, said that one of the things the county lacked when he was growing up was an urgent care facility, and that he and his family members would have to travel elsewhere for medical care after hours.
