J.C. Lewis Primary Healthcare Center
The J.C. Lewis Primary Healthcare Center is a private non-profit 501 (C) healthcare facility. It was founded in 1999 by the leadership of Union Mission, Inc., concerned with addressing the healthcare issue of the homeless and the under-served in the Savannah community. In 2019, J.C. Lewis Health* purchased an existing one story structure on an out parcel at Oglethorpe Mall in order to better reach the qualifying population in south Chatham County.
The original facility was built in the 1970’s and was in need of a complete renovation including interior, exterior, and site/grounds to meet the needs of JC Lewis Health. Renovations were master planned into 2 phases of construction based on funding. The scope included typical healthcare spaces as well as a new roof, exterior façade improvements, parking improvements and emergency generator connection. The renovated facility has ample, convenient parking for staff and customers.
*JC Lewis Health is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).
