This Week's Poll
Woodlawn Hospital officials are considering an urgent care clinic. It would not require an appointment and would take care of patients with minor illnesses and injuries. The clinic would be open every day of the week including holidays. It would not take care of major problems such as heart attacks, strokes or serious injuries. Do you think this is a good idea? Please pick the response that most closely reflects your views.

Please select one:
1 – It certainly is. There are a lot of medical situations that don’t belong in the emergency room, but need attention at a time when the physician offices are not open or have no openings available. It would be a valuable community service for those who have a sudden need for medical care or can’t see a doctor or nurse practitioner during normal business hours. 
2 – Maybe.
3 – No opinion.
5 – Nope. Fulton County has lots of medical care already – a modern hospital and several doctors and nurse practitioners. Enough is enough.
