Jennie Stuart Health celebrates a groundbreaking ceremony for their new medical office building near the corner of Ft. Campbell Blvd. and Eagle Way. In addition to an expansion of local healthcare services, the facility will also house new medical services provided by Vanderbilt Health. Jennie Stuart has been a member of the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network for two years. "During that time we have implemented various shared services with Vanderbilt to include telehealth programs such as tele-neurology, tele-infectious disease, and tele-EEG", said Eric Lee, CEO. "It has proven to be a great partnership for our hospital and for our local community".

 The clinical affiliation between Jennie Stuart and Vanderbilt Health will strategically relocate several existing services as well as introduce new service lines to the area. The location is ideal for Vanderbilt Health to position several medical specialists in the region. As the delivery of healthcare changes and a larger allocation of services become outpatient services, this medical office building is well positioned to geographically serve an expanding area of the community.

 Among attendees of the event were state and local community supporters including Mayor Carter Hendricks, Christian County Chamber of Commerce President, Kelli Pendleton, Planters Bank President, Elizabeth McCoy, State Senator Whitney Westerfield, and State Representative, Walker Thomas. Introductions during the event were presented by Tracey Clark, the new Executive Director of the Jennie Stuart Health Foundation.
