Dr. Jeremy Moreland, President of William Woods University, released the following statement today on the news that Jefferson City Medical Group and Callaway County are opening an extended-hours Express Care medical facility to Fulton:
“At William Woods University, we pride ourselves in being a strong member of, and good neighbor to, our host communities of Fulton and Callaway County. We are extremely pleased that the Jefferson City Medical Group and Callaway County have reached an agreement to bring a new extended-hours Express Care facility with x-ray to Fulton, the first step in bringing back much-needed access to medical services in our area.
Returning an extended hours health care facility to Fulton is essential to the quality of life in our city and county, and will serve as one more excellent reason to choose to study or work at William Woods University. As one of the area’s oldest and top employers, we applaud this critical agreement and look forward to the day when the doors open to this new facility.”
