CRMC to open FFG medical clinic Monday

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.”

Elaine Howard will be the family nurse practitioner. Cardiology specialists serving the clinic are Alex Case, MD, Timothy Fournet, MD, Thomas Little, MD and Gary Reynolds, MD. Orthopedic specialists are Gregory Roberts, MD, and John Turnbull, MD. Quinton Cancel, MD, will serve urology patients while Hima Kona, MD, will see pulmonology patients. Jeff Moore, MD, will offer general surgery services and gastroenterology specialists have not yet been determined.

A grand opening is scheduled for the public July 12 from 3 to 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 – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cookeville Regional Medical Center is a 247-bed regional referral center for the Upper Cumberland area.  In addition, Cookeville Regional will house a 32-bed behavioral health hospital that will open this summer in partnership with Ten Broeck Tennessee.  With over 200 physicians in 40 different medical and surgical specialties, Cookeville Regional offers patients here the same kind of care that they could expect in a larger metropolitan area including specialty care such as cardiology, electrophysiology, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, cancer treatment, physical rehabilitation and neurosurgery.  Serving the Upper Cumberland since 1950, Cookeville Regional has grown to become the health care provider of choice for residents in the Upper Cumberland region.

  • Thoughts for this holy time of Easter

    The first performance of George Friderick Handel's masterpiece, "Messiah," was given in Dublin, Ireland, on April 13, 1742, where it was well received. When it was performed in England there were criticisms of the music, performers and location of the performance. It was held that the subject matter was too exalted to perform in an opera house, but rather it should be performed in church. Wouldn't it be interesting if we knew how many times this magnificent music has been performed in the past 272 years?
