New Adult Health Care Practice Opens In Century

August 9, 2017

A new adult health care practice is now open in Century.

Wednesday was opening day as Escambia Community Clinics  opens its ECC Century Adult Primary Care medical practice to serve the health care needs of adults from Century and surrounding areas.  The new office is located at 6021 Industrial Boulevard inside the Century Clinic of Lakeview Center. The new medical office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Family nurse practitioner Mamie “Paula” Kennedy, DNP, ARNP, FNP-C, is the  provider for this new office, which serves adults ages 18 and up. ECC  Century Adult Primary Care offers a wide range of heath care services for adults, including annual well visits, screenings, treatment of minor illnesses and injuries and management of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma. Patients may also access a network of support services that are offered at ECC’s other 12 locations, such as pharmacy assistance and healthcare for the homeless.

The office is now accepting calls for appointments Monday through Friday during business hours at (850) 724-4064. Same day appointments may be available. This is ECC’s second location in Century. ECC opened their Century Pediatrics and Pediatric Dental Clinic at 501 Church Street in Century earlier this year.

“We are excited to be able to bring adult primary health care services to our neighbors in Northern Escambia County. Locating this new practice in Lakeview Center’s Century clinic is a great partnership designed to improve the health and quality of life of the residents of the communities we serve,” said Chandra Smiley, executive director of Escambia Community Clinics.

ECC is a Florida Medicaid, Humana and Molina managed care provider, and accepts Alabama  Medicaid and many private health insurances. ECC offers a sliding fee scale program for those individuals who do not have insurance coverage.

Payment plans are available for those persons who do not qualify or choose not to qualify for the sliding fee program. Payment plans are designed to meet each individual’s income level.

    Mrs. Paula Kennedy was my clinical instructor at Jay Hospital when I was in nursing school. She was awesome! She explained things so that I would be able to understand and never treated me like I was “just a student”. She will be great in whatever she does! Happy for you Mrs. Paula!

    This was one of Jay’s best nurses, I love this lady, not only is she a Christian, but she was so nice. Every single experience I have ever had at Jay with her, she was the best.
