If you have any reason to visit the emergency room in Walton County from now on, be sure to head to the new Clearview Regional Medical Center on Spring Street.
“We officially opened at 7 a.m. today (Sunday, April 22) and began accepting patients,” said Stacy Jones chief development officer for Walton’s regional hospital system. “At the same time we began discharging patients from the old hospital.”
Jones said the license only allows for a certain number of beds and keeping both open for any length of time would have been in violation of the license. So at 7 a.m. Sunday, ambulances began moving patients to beds in the new location just across the road from the Home Depot in Monroe.
“The newly constructed hospital, situated on 60+ acres overlooking Walton County’s rolling hills, replaces the community’s original hospital, which officially closed on April 22,”
