In partnership with Bibb Medical Center, Cahaba Medical Care will be opening a new full-spectrum primary care clinic in West Blocton, providing easier access to medical and behavioral health care to both children and adults.
Cahaba Medical Care has been serving residents of West Blocton for 17 years by providing primary care in Centreville since 2004, implementing house calls in 2006, expanding to open a clinic in the neighboring community of Woodstock in 2015, and most recently, opening a school-based health clinic at West Blocton Elementary School in 2018. The new clinic, located at 319 Magnolia Street, will open on June 7, 2021.
