The $13 million facility will open to the public on Monday. Its staff includes seven physicians, two physician assistants, a nurse practitioner and three physical therapists. The medical center is part of a larger strategy to move health care services closer to patients and away from hospitals. Centra plans to open ambulatory care centers in Amherst and Danville later this year. The health system also plans to open a pulmonary unit at Lynchburg General Hospital.
