Medical Arts Building expected to open in September

CROSSVILLE — Residents of Fairfield Glade will be able to take advantage of great convenience in health care later this year when the Fairfield Glade Medical Arts facility of Cumberland Medical Center is open for business.

"We're right on schedule," said Ron Hellmund, director of engineering services and leader of the Fairfield Glade project.

The Medical Arts building will be adjacent to the current Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade, next to the Fairfield Glade Community and Conference Center.

Work began in August to build new parking areas at the Wellness Complex, and the old parking area will become a staging area for the building construction. In addition to new parking areas, there is a new exit onto Stonehenge Drive that is expected to help traffic flow in the area.

"We're working very closely with the Fairfield Glade community and making sure we're being a good partner with them," Hellmund said. "We're going to redo the front of the current wellness complex and make it look like one building when it's finished. It will be a very attractive building and we're going to mirror the community center with a lot of stone."

The Medical Arts Building will be 25,000 square feet offering digital mammography and radiology, lab services and a walk-in clinic. There will be specialty offices for orthopedics and geriatrics. Office space will also be available for physicians to lease.

"They can just drive to our Medical Arts facility for some services instead of driving into town," Hellmund said, noting that the facility would not offer emergency services.

The Medical Arts facility was first announced in 2011. At that time, Ed Anderson, chairman of the CMC Board of Directors, said, "We are really excited about this and looking forward to it. This is something we have discussed for a period of time. We've had property out there for four or five years, waiting for the opportunity and appropriate time that we could go out there and do this in partnership with Fairfield."

The property is 3.071 acres of land at the corner of Stonehenge Dr. and Village Dr. After work began on evaluating the site for construction, the original building location was found to be unsuitable due to geographic complications. After further study, it was discovered space was available next to the existing Wellness Complex site and plans were redrawn.

Contractor for the project is Strauss Construction Company of Chattanooga.

  • Tracking tracks.jpg Tracking down old tracks

    It is perceived that the lumber business was profitable and extensive throughout the entire area of the current Glade and along much of the path of the described rail from the Glade all the way to Dorton. While our previous reports detailed much about the track of the Cumberland Northern, most of the reported discovery was north of Peavine and east of the four-way stop near the new Wyndham reception center (and east toward Antioch).

  • Friends group plans Elbe River cruise

    Our “Friends Traveling Together” group at Fairfield Glade was eagerly anticipating a Russia river cruise with a pre-trip to Ukraine this summer. World events, as it sometimes happens, caused us to rethink those plans. Undeterred, however, we will be embarking instead on an Elbe River cruise from Berlin, Germany to Prague on Aug. 10-22.

  • Enjoying Nature.jpg Enjoying Nature: Keeping up with the bluebirds

    There may not be a prettier bird than our Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis, (pronounced cee-AL-ee-a cee-AL-iss). Bluebirds stay here in Tennessee all year, and, in the winter, you will often see groups of five or six at a time coming to your suet or mealworm feeder. But this time of year, you'll generally only see two at a time, because once a pair establishes a territory, they will chase off all potential rivals.
