Atmore Community Hospital (ACH) has added Alison Gibson, CRNP, to their medical staff. She will begin seeing patients in September 2022 at Atmore Urgent Care.
“We are excited to have Alison join our team at the new Atmore Urgent Care,” hospital administrator Brad Lowery said. “We know she brings a wealth of hospital and clinic experience, which will be a huge asset to the clinic and to the Atmore medical community. Our plan is to continue hiring our nursing and office staff and be ready for our grand opening at the end of August.”
Gibson received her Family Nurse Practitioner and MSN in nursing degrees at Troy University. She obtained her BSN Degree from the University of Mobile and her Registered Nursing Degree from the University of West Alabama. Prior to joining Atmore Urgent Care, Gibson worked as a CRNP for Monroe County Hospital, Monroeville Medical Center and Jackson Urgent Care Clinic in Jackson, Ala. She also worked at Baptist South in Montgomery, Jackson Hospital, and Mobile Infirmary in Mobile, to name a few.
Atmore Urgent Care will be located at 5850 Highway 21 beside the Taco Bell and across from Wind Creek Casino by I-65. The opening date is tentatively scheduled for August 2022. Contact information and hours will be communicated in the upcoming weeks.
The new urgent care will offer non-emergent care and increased access to healthcare for Atmore and surrounding communities. This will replace the current walk-in clinic (ACH MedPlus), expanding it to a fully functioning urgent care. The building that is currently ACH MedPlus will become ACH Specialty Care and will house visiting physicians and clinics on a rotating basis. The goal is to increase the number of visiting specialties offered each month.
