Providence Medical Group celebrated the grand opening and blessing today, July 16, of a new 15,000 square-foot outpatient medical park – Ascension Medical Group Providence at Providence Park – on its West Mobile campus.

Providence is a member of Ascension, the largest non-profit health system in the U.S. and the world’s largest Catholic health system.

The new Providence Park facility is located on the Providence Hospital campus at 6908 Providence Park Drive South and will include:

  • A new primary care practice staffed by family medicine physician Nancy Weible, MD, as well as internal medicine physician Stephanie Bender, MD, who will join Providence Park in September
  • Providence Medical Group pediatricians Dr. Amit Pant and Dr. Hari Sivanandam, as well as Dr. Vimla Bhagwandin, who joins the group in August
  • Walk-in clinic with no appointment needed
  • Onsite laboratory and X-ray
  • Separate sick and well-child waiting areas
  • Hand-painted murals

Ascension Medical Group Providence at Providence Park is the first Mobile location to adopt the Ascension brand name within the Providence Medical Group physician network.

The walk-in clinic at Providence Park will be available to provide immediate care for those who do not have a primary care doctor or who are ill but may not be able to get a same-day appointment with their regular doctor. No appointment is needed.

“This new facility is a reflection of our growing community and Providence’s commitment to meeting the need for specialized medical care,” said Todd Kennedy, president and CEO of Providence Hospital. “Our promise to provide personalized, compassionate care begins in our physician offices. By expanding access to medical care for both children and adults, we can provide services that are even more timely, which ultimately leads to better outcomes and quality of life for our patients.”

Because of the growth in space and availability, Providence has hired four new providers – a family medicine physician, an internal medicine physician, a pediatrician and a nurse practitioner – to care for patients at Providence Park.
