Marshall Medical Center and Family Health Group announced their plans to open a new physician office in the heart of Chapel Hill.

Devi Newcomb, M.D., the family medicine physician who will be the primary provider in the office stated, "Family Health Group has been serving the residents of Chapel Hill since September 2005 in the clinic at 111 South Horton Parkway. To better serve the community and to provide continuity of care, I will be the primary physician at our existing office on a full-time basis beginning April 1 and move into the new facility once it is complete."

The new 3,098 sq. ft. facility, located at 4696 Nashville Hwy., will be open Monday through Friday, 8:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.

Dr. Newcomb's staff will include Rebecca Byrd, RN, Aija Davis, MA, and Cathy Bowman, patient services representative. The office will offer six exam rooms, with plans to include X-ray and other services as volume increases. Patients will be seen by appointment and walk-ins will be accepted.

"Chapel Hill is experiencing rapid growth and Marshall Medical Center is pleased to join family Health Group in providing primary care services for the residents in this growing area," said Chief Executive Officer of MMC Ken Rudy.

The developer for the building is BBC, LLC and the general contractor is Truette Construction, Inc. The anticipated completion date is September 1.
