Patients living along Ga. 400 and the surrounding area now have greater access to care close to home, as Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) opened its second Medical Plaza in Dawsonville today, Monday, March 18. Northeast Georgia Physicians Group OB/GYN began seeing patients on the second floor, and the remaining practices in the building will open following the Grand Opening celebration planned for this Saturday, March 23, 9 – 11 a.m.

“We’re thrilled to offer more appointments and expanded services here in Dawsonville,” said Daniel Tuffy, president and chief administrative officer for Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG). “With the April opening of the new Northeast Georgia Medical Center Lumpkin just 8 miles north of Medical Plaza 2, patients needing surgery will be able to both see their doctors and have surgery close to home.”
