Pediatrician’s Office, Dental Clinic Open In Century

March 1, 2017

A ribbon cutting was held Tuesday afternoon for the Escambia Community Clinics Century Pediatrics and Pediatric Dental Clinic.

Ater spending a period of half-days doing local outreach from her longtime Jay office, pediatrician Dr. Marian Stewart said she became convinced that there was a need for a pediatrician in Century.

“I thought I am seven miles away, why do I want to come over here full time? After a lot of soul searching…it was decided Century really, really needed a pediatrician. The seven miles was sometimes an insurmountable event for them (patients) to get over there,” Stewart said.

“I spent 18 years in Jay,” Stewart continued. “I’ll give 15 to 20 years to Century.

“Thank you for coming, and thank you for being a part of our community,” Century Mayor Henry Hawkins said as he pledged to stand behind the clinic.

    Dr Stewart was my pediatrician and I also worked at the medical clinic in Jay, along side her and the other doctors. She was always so kind and soft spoken, her patients always came first.
    This makes me smile!! Glad to see her making an impact where it is needed most!
