Located at 250 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in the former Georgia Music Hall of Fame building, the newly renovated facility will offer primary and specialized outpatient health care provided exclusively by faculty physicians with the Mercer University School of Medicine.

"Our desire is to create a centralized, easily accessible location where our patients can continue to receive the highest quality healthcare available in Central Georgia," said Dr. William F. Bina III, MD, MPH, dean of the School of Medicine.

The 43,000-square-foot building served as the location of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame from 1996 until its closing in 2011. Since its purchase by the University from the state of Georgia in 2012, the building's interior has undergone extensive renovation to accommodate approximately 25 physicians specializing in cardiology, endocrinology, family medicine, gastroenterology, general internal medicine, nephrology, psychiatry, pulmonology, rheumatology and sleep medicine. The newly renovated medical complex will also include an onsite laboratory, rheumatology infusion center, pulmonary function testing lab and nuclear cardiac stress testing lab.
