On March 25, 2015 FastMed was proud to host its Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Event at its new urgent care in Rockingham, North Carolina.
“We are pleased to have FastMed’s new urgent care as a chamber member,” said Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce President, Emily Tucker. “We welcome them to the community and wish them success as they fill a vital role in Rockingham’s health care system.”
FastMed provided tours of the clinic, lunch and hosted a Q&A. Speakers included: Rockingham Mayor Steve Morris, Richmond County Commissioner John Garner, Vice Chairman for the Richmond County Chamber Terry Lewis, and First Health Richmond Memorial Hospital President John Jackson.
“My support is personal, as I was a patient of FastMed and experienced their quick, personal care first hand,” said John Garner, Richmond County Commissioner. “They had me in and out in less than an hour and I was feeling great in a few days.”
