Cookeville Regional opening clinic in Fairfield Glade

CROSSVILLE — Cookeville Regional Medical Center is opening a primary and specialty care clinic near Fairfield Glade, in the Fairfield Towne Center, and will be seeing patients as of July 2.   

Cookeville Regional’s Fairfield Glade Clinic will be staffed daily, Monday through Friday, with a nurse practitioner to care for minor illnesses and injuries for patients over 18 years of age. In addition, specialty physicians from Cookeville Regional Medical Center will travel to the clinic each week and patients will have the convenience of seeing them in the Fairfield Glade area instead of going to Cookeville for every visit. Specialists going to the clinic will include: cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons, a pulmonary medicine specialist, gastroenterologist, and a general/vascular surgeon along with other specialists in the future. 

Establishing clinics in outlying areas surrounding Cookeville is a natural expansion for Cookeville Regional Medical Center. “As a regional referral medical center, it is important for our hospital to expand its services to other communities,” said Dr. Menachem Langer, CEO of Cookeville Regional.  “Community outreach is important to us and we are pleased to offer this service to the people of Fairfield Glade as well as others in the surrounding area.”

A grand opening is scheduled for the public on Thursday, July 12, from 3-4:30 p.m., with light refreshments and giveaways. 

To schedule an appointment with the clinic or for more information, call 484-3050. Walk-ins are welcome for primary care visits. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
