Gadsden Community Hospital lost its license last year.
The county manager says the urgent care facility will allow residents to stay in Gadsden rather than making the drive to Tallahassee.
Residents are anxiously awaiting the opening.
Evelyn Joyce Alexis, a Gadsden County resident, said, "Any town, in spite of how small or large it is, needs a care center because it's not easy getting to Tallahassee."
The county manager says after the urgent care center opens the next step will be reopening the entire Gadsden Community Hospital.
