Special to 1812Blockhouse

Cornerstone OB/GYN Clinic will welcome patients back to its location after completing weeks of post-storm repairs. The clinic has been temporarily closed since late December. The clinic will resume services Monday at its offices located at 770 Balgreen, Suite 207.

“We are excited to get our providers and patients back to familiar surroundings,” said Brice Eyerly, Third Street’s director of clinical operations. “We are very grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding during these past few weeks.”

Cornerstone, a Third Street Family Health Services campus, sustained water damage during Winter Storm Elliott. To continue to support patients, Cornerstone’s providers were relocated to three other campuses in Third Street’s network. Eyerly said the unplanned closure and temporary changes strengthened relationships among professionals of various disciplines.
