Piedmont Medical Center announced this week in a letter to patients that its Rock Hill urgent care center will permanently close on Aug. 26.

The center, located on Addison Avenue just off of Dave Lyle Boulevard near Target, will be shutting down after the building’s owner decided to transition to a new tenant, according to Amy Faulkenberry, Piedmont’s vice president of external affairs.

Piedmont officials are “working fast” to re-establish a footprint in Rock Hill, Faulkenberry said.

“We’re committed to the Dave Lyle area and look forward to beefing up our presence there with primary care, and hopefully get a location that would see walk-ins and establish a primary care presence to replace the urgent care,” Faulkenberry said.

Patients are encouraged to visit Piedmont’s three other urgent care centers, including two in Fort Mill and one in York.

If patients wish to seek care within the PMC Physician Network, medical records will be made available to the providers at any Piedmont practices, according to the letter.

Dr. Steven Smith will join the medical team at Piedmont West Urgent Care Center on Filbert Highway in York.
