The Phyllis D. Corbitt Community Health Center in Wimore is now a full-service primary care clinic and will provide accessible health services in Jessamine County and surrounding counties.
The clinic originally opened in 2015 and is named for Dr. Phyllis D. Corbitt, who served the Wilmore community for more than 40 years. It previously only offered limited health services such as immunizations, sports physicals and treatment of common illnesses, including upper respiratory infections and allergies.
Under the new license, the clinic now offers comprehensive healthcare for people of all ages, including health promotion, disease prevention, immunizations, management of acute and chronic health problems, school and sports physicals, as well as pre-employment health screenings and physicals, and referrals to specialists at UK HealthCare. Additionally, it will soon participate in the Vaccines for Children program.
“Our dream has always been to provide quality healthcare for the citizens of Wilmore and the surrounding area who do not have a primary care provider,” clinic director Dr. Sharon Lock said. “It is very important to us to have a practice site for our faculty nurse practitioners in the College of Nursing as well as a clinical site for our family nurse practitioner students.”
The clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Most health insurance plans are accepted. Copays and other expenses can be paid with cash, debit card or credit card.
To make an appointment, call 859-858-0339. Walk-ins are also accepted. The clinic is located at 317 East Main St., in Wilmore.
