The newly renovated and technologically updated public health clinic continues to offer healthcare services in three separate but closely coordinated clinics. The three clinical areas are Sexual Health Services for sexually transmitted diseases, the Ryan White program for HIV medical services and Respiratory Health Services for Tuberculosis/TB prevention and treatment. All clinical areas are centrally located on the fifth floor of 10 Park Place. The clinic is open Monday through Friday starting at 8:00 a.m. Clients should call the clinic at 404-621-1211 to confirm clinic availability and to schedule their appointments.
The new clinic also features an expanded and enhanced pharmacy and a laboratory with $150,000 in state-of-the-art equipment to process STD, HIV and TB tests in a safer and more efficient environment. The updating of the names of clinic services coincides with the new location and highlights Fulton County's continued commitment to the health and wellbeing of the county's most vulnerable and under-served populations. On July 1, 2017, the Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness will transition into a new organizational structure to become the Fulton County Board of Health. The new Fulton County Board of Health will now be aligned with the Georgia Department of Public Health.
"In keeping with Fulton County's strategic priority that 'All People Are Healthy,' our new clinic provides clients with a more comfortable experience, featuring the latest in health technology" explains Fulton County District Health Director Kathleen Toomey M.D., M.P.H.

Fulton County Public Health at 10 Park Place South, S.E. is accessible via the Five Points MARTA rail and several MARTA bus lines. Patients and clients are encouraged to take MARTA to the clinic. Marta information can be found at http://www.itsmarta.com/train-stations-and-schedules.aspx. Limited public parking is available nearby.
On any given day, hundreds of patients and clients utilize the services of the Fulton County Health Department, many of whom may not otherwise have a medical home.
The 10 Park Place clinic replaces Fulton's flagship Aldredge Health Clinic that had become outdated and subsequently closed in April 2017 after more than 50 years of service to the community.
Thanks for your continued support!
