BENNETTSVILLE — The husband and wife medical team of Dr. Haynes Cain and nurse practitioner Gail Cain are once again working together with the addition of Dr. Cain to Marlboro Family Practice & Urgent Care, formerly Scotland Health Care Center.
Originally from Dillon, Cain began his medical career in private practice in Bennettsville in 1989. In 2000, his wife joined him in that practice. In 2003, the couple together joined CareSouth, a federally qualified community health plan, where they worked until Gail Cain joined Scotland Health Care Center this past May.
Cain said he is excited about returning to the private health care sector and to once again practice acute care medicine with his wife Gail, especially at Scotland Health Care System’s new multi-specialty medical complex.
”It will be quite exciting to be in the new Marlboro Medical Complex,” he said. “Marlboro Family Practice and Urgent Care is growing with increased hours of operation, and additional services, including urgent care for those illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening but do require immediate care. I’ve heard from community members that they are excited about the addition of the facility and all the medical specialties that will be under one roof. I welcome any of my previous patients, as well as new patients, at Marlboro Family Practice and Urgent Care.”
Haynes Cain met his wife, Gail while serving on a missions trip to Honduras. Eighteen months and a second missions trip later he and Gail were married. Together, the couple has five children ranging from age 22 to 31. In their spare time, the couple enjoys hiking, canoeing and kayaking.
Cain joins Scotland Health Care System Dec 15 on the opening day of the Marlboro Medical Complex. Officials say the new multi-specialty complex will reduce wait times, improving quality of care and ultimately increasing overall patient satisfaction.
Longtime Bennettsville physicians Drs. David Howell, Jadene Lowry and Cain will staff the complex with nurse practitioners Gye Mitchell and Gail Cain.
Office hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. Appointments can be made for primary medical care but are not necessary for urgent care services. Patients can continue to reach Marlboro Family Practice & Urgent Care at 843-454-0245.
On Jan. 5, these additional practices open in the new Marlboro Medical Complex:
