Wiregrass Family Clinic of Hartford was dedicated Thursday.
Samson native, Dr. Hayden Childs, along with nurse practitioners will staff the downtown clinic five days a week.
For Doctor Childs, it's like a homecoming to practice medicine in Geneva County.
Most of his career has been spent in Birmingham, as well as Mobile.
Dr. Childs says the clinic will provide an essential service in Hartford.
Later this summer, Wiregrass Hospital Administrator, Al Allred, hopes to open a second satellite clinic.
Sites are being considered in Samson.
