Since May of last year, Trezevant’s medical clinic facility at 45 Hurt Street has sat empty and unused, and Trezevant residents have had no choice but to drive 10 or more miles to the nearest medical providers in McKenzie, Huntingdon, or Milan.
But that will soon be changing as Primary Care Clinic of Jackson is expanding and moving into the Trezevant facility.
According to nurse practitioner Deborah Leggett, who co-owns the company along with nurse practitioner Kathy O’Connor-Wray, the new Primary Care Clinic of Trezevant will be opening for business on October 30.
Nurse practitioner Tammy Griffis-Hanik will be heading up the Trezevant Clinic.
As Leggett detailed, the clinic will provide primary medical care for children and adults. Walk-in patients will be accepted, though appointments can also be made.
The clinic will accept all major insurance plans, including all TennCare and Medicare plans.
To start, Leggett said that the clinic will be open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., though Trezevant patients will be welcome to come to the Jackson office on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
“We may eventually expand our days and hours at the Trezevant clinic,” said Leggett. “We’ll just see how it goes.”
Primary Care Clinic of Trezevant will be holding open house celebrations on Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 2 to 4 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:30 p.m. Leggett said that local residents are welcome to come out that day, meet with their staff, and check out the facility.
The clinic facility is owned by the Trezevant Industrial Board, and Primary Care Clinic will be paying monthly rent for use of the facility as negotiated with the Industrial Board.
