1917 / St. George Transition

For a list of the most frequently asked questions, click here. 

Due to high volume and to avoid delays, we cannot accommodate walk ins for medication after 4:00 pm. Social workers will be available for approval but medication will not be filled by the pharmacy until the next day.

Sadly, the St. George's Clinic at Cooper Green closed on January 31, 2013. Since the 1917 Clinic is a Ryan White, Part C Grantee, it is our responsibility to accept patient referrals. We have a long history of providing quality care and support services to patients with HIV and are committed to meeting the medical needs of persons in the Birmingham region. Thus, we are expanding our program so that we may provide medical care and services to more people in our region. The 1917 Clinic expanded in late 2012 with the addition of six exam rooms. We are committed to preventing any disruption in care and have begun the transition process. 

Our doors are open and we welcome any and all patients of St. George's Clinic that choose to receive care from 1917. The 1917 Clinic providers want very much to provide your care, but our clinic may not be the best fit for everyone. Some patients may choose to explore entering treatment with other local providers. What is most important is that everyone finds a provider best suited for their particular needs.
