SMYRNA, TENN – The Primary Care and Hope Clinic has broken ground on a $6.6 million health care clinic to be located at 500 Spc Neal Mitchell Place across from the Nissan Assembly plant.
The clinic was founded on a mission to provide high-quality health care for the most vulnerable, the Primary Care and Hope Clinic has become the primary resource for medical care to the uninsured and under-insured in Rutherford County and is an anchor for the community health safety net.
The 20,000-square-foot, two-story building will feature 24 examination rooms, four behavioral health rooms and a pharmacy, said Lisa Terry, CEO of Primary Care and Hope Clinic.
“Our current Smyrna site has experienced tremendous growth and is close to capacity. The people of Smyrna call us daily to ask for services. We need more space to meet the health care needs of people in the community, ”said Terry.
The new Smyrna Primary Care and Hope Clinic campus will expand access to health care services by offering additional primary care providers; additional behavioral health services; counseling on nutrition and diabetes self-management; childhood vaccines; interpreter services; and a pharmacy on site.
These services are provided at the Health Center’s Hope Way location in Murfreesboro, but have not always been available in Smyrna due to facility limitations.
The construction is expected to be completed in fall 2022. Funding for the new facility comes from local businesses, local health care organizations, private donors and foundations, and the Christy-Houston Foundation stepped up with a $2 million contribution.
