For 15 years the clinic operated in a single-wide trailer serving clients of MUST Ministries, the nonprofit organization which helps the homeless and the poor.

The new facility, housed at the nonprofit’s headquarters in Marietta, will include five exam rooms, a waiting room and social service room. The clinic will be managed by nurses and staffed with KSU nursing and social work students, said Richard Sowell, dean of KSU’s WellStar College of Health and Human Services.

Clinic staff provided more than 2,500 patient contacts — through initial and follow-up visits and pharmacy calls — last year, and the numbers are expected to immediately double in the new facility, Sowell said.

The new clinic has been open and accepting patients for a few weeks. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 20.
