SPINDALE (Aug. 5, 2021) — Alesha Logan, a nursing graduate from Isothermal Community College, is opening a new health clinic in Gastonia next week.
Logan graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Nursing in 2009. She went on to achieve bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing before earning her doctorate as a Nurse Practitioner from the University of Alabama - Huntsville.
After working for several years as a board-certified family nurse practitioner, she is opening Logos Health, a direct primary care facility in Gastonia. She will serve as the chief executive officer and medical director as well.
Unlike traditional primary care practices, Logos Health is a direct primary care (DPC) practice, and its unique model makes quality healthcare affordable to people whether they have insurance or not.
After caring for uninsured patients during the COVID pandemic, Logan began to recognize the barriers to quality care for those without insurance.
“Healthcare access remains an issue, and many people can simply not afford to take time away from their jobs. They often utilize the ER for primary care, and this drives up the overall cost of healthcare,” said Logan. “By opening a practice that doesn’t depend on the type of insurance you have, I’m able to care for families, businesses and individuals in a timely and personable manner. My patients love not having to incur a deductible or copay each time they need care and families are now saving a substantial amount on their healthcare costs. It also allows me to spend more time with my patients while also providing open availability for appointments so you can see me when and where you need me.”
Logos Health will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to open its doors on Monday, Aug. 9, at 5 p.m. It is located at 1040 Xray Drive in Gastonia. The phone number is 704-389-3741.
The DPC model focuses on promoting quality healthcare, same day appointments and improved access to a primary care provider. Logos Health is not a traditional medical practice.
“For a similar cost to a low monthly gym membership, patients receive unlimited visits with direct access to a medical provider via text, video chat, and relaxed in-office visits – all with complete cost transparency,” said Logan.
