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. Its funny with a hospital in town so close, this choice was made. that tells me something. How about You?

its funny because CMC promoted their expansions because of the FFGers, and now they are stabbing the place in the back. Conrad Welch, head of engineering, was a big promoter of the Gladers being able to have private rooms, the idiots used to fight over who had the bed by the door. Now they are going to the "dark side." Oh well. He is out, FFG is out, i guess the hospital must have another agenda. Make the money mad, i say.

The point I saw was this, ffg wants so much to be their own city. They are constantly talking about how it was up where they came from. They have complained enough to the point that now they have their own clinic. Ill say this much, if its so bad here, go back where you came from! We wont mind a bit. Some gladers are decent folks but most think they are top of the food chain around here. Go home gladers and leave us in peace.

So let me get this straight, you are complaining about FFG getting a clinic? If you had any common sense at all, you might realize that less of the elite will come into Crossville to see a doctor and you will not have to see as many of them, making the chances of you feeling inferior in there presence less.

You people are so funny!

You people are so funny!
Not seeing them sounds good to me! Its the fact that they want to turn Tennessee in to Michigan and Ohio ! I get so tired of hearing "Im from the glade so its ok for me to do things that aren't right". They are no better than anyone but feel everyone owes them something! I could care less about 95% of them.the other need to realize this is how its done here, not up north. If we are so back woods, why did you move here to begin with? Get over themselves and move on. We out number them any way :)

Personally, I don't allow Gladers to make me feel inferior. Sad to see so many others do.

Honestly, if you people acted like you had any civilization I would not mind being among you. All the smoking, bad hair cuts and trashy cars/trucks drives me nuts. For you women, please put on your Sunday clothes and take your "jammies" off before you come to town. Make your kids behave and quit speaking so slowly, good lord.

I don't much care for the yankees myself but you have to consider how many jobs FFG has created over the years. I made a good living with a home improvement business for many years and wouldn't have made it without their business. Building all those houses out there has put a lot of food on the table for many families here. There are no more of them that get on my nerves than there are southern people. At least almost all of them are white people, that is why so many move here. They don't want to be around all the crime and violence the blacks and immigrants cause up north. Now that there are blacks and browns living here they will eventually run off all the respectable white folks living in FFG and we will see a major drop in our local economy.

I don't really care why they have a medical facility. thing is, they desparately need something out there. have you ever had a medical emergency and tried to get to the hospital? you can not get there fast enough to save a life. the problem i see with this is the "18 and over". what if you have a baby? will they refuse to help you? they need to work on building a road from peavine to crossville without having to snake your way through 30 miles of winding roads. if ffg ever caught on fire, everyone would be trapped.

I believe we dont have anything to worry about from the list of doctors given. The patients will get everything they deserve. For some of them it is their last chance/stop.

This could be a good thing. Now that CRMC has their foot in the door in Cumberland County, maybe CMC will wake up and try to turn their hospital back into a decent place to get medical care!

I moved to TN from the West Coast a few years back. My family roots are in TN, but I was born and raised in a Northern state and lived all my adult live on the West Coast. We chose to move to TN a few years ago due to the beauty in the state and a cheaper cost of living. What I found in TN was people that appear to be kind to you, beautiful countryside, and a lot of corruption, wrongdoing, cronyism, nepotism and sometimes downright stupidity in your medical and judicial systems alone.

The few years that I was in Tennessee, I heard about and helped more victims of the corruption and wrongdoing in the medical and judicial community that what I ever saw in my life while living in a different state.

I carried a professional license in TN, and have the same license in other states that I have worked in. TN had the easiest and shortest examination to take in order to get that license. An idiot could have probably past it. While working in TN in that profession I saw more corruption on a number of levels, especially in law enforcement and the judicial system.

The phase, "Well that's the way we do it around here" is a poor excuse for Tennessee's private and public professionals to screw their local citizens. I have found that these local predators are enabled to commit their corrupt acts due to a good ole boy system where nepotism and cronyism runs deep and poor laws that would make one believe that the corruption goes all the way up to the state legislature.

In the modern day of technology and the information highway, Tennesseans won't have to worry about outsiders coming into their state, because with all the corruption, people are learning that they are not even safe to drive through the state without being handled corruption by law enforcement. Channel 5 News in Nashville is covering a story that they have been investigating for over a year now called "Policing for Profit". Watch this news story and video.

http://hypervocal.com/news/2012/policing-for-...

The condition of the judicial system and lack of professional responsibility riddled with good-ole-boy cover-up has gotten the attention of the Associated Press who rated Tennessee's Court of the Judiciary with a D- in the area of accountability.

Many other state agencies are also riddled with corruption and many locals have no idea what "The way we do it here" really means and how it negatively impact all of you!

So with all due respect, before you fall back on that "the way we do it around here", mindset, you might consider being more open to those "stuck-up" people from up North coming down here to change things. Any changes they try to make could save you from being a victim of policies and laws that are intended to screw local Tennesseans, including in the medical community!

I am not at all impressed with the medical community in TN. I've have seen "the way we do things here" harm more patients that I care to see. There is so much fraud in the medical community that harms and rips off patients and most of the local patients don't know about.

"But, that's the way they do things here" is what the victims will say too!

That's one of the most ignorant and self serving statements I have ever heard. Good and honest TN residents could use some Outsiders helping them to clean up the good-ole-boy corruption. But many locals can't even "see" the corruption because they are so use to it, and have accepted it as a way of life. That is what it means when someone says "that is the way we do it here." Usually those who make that statement don't want change because they benefit from the way it is now done. If that is not the case, then it is pride and they are offended when outsiders find fault with the way it is done in TN.

Pride or being offended will cause many good people in TN to close their eyes to any critical statement about TN even if they are victims of the corruption. It's truly amazing!

Watchdog, in post # 7 and all the other locals who hate so-called "Yankees", the above post was for you... just in case that was obvious. Many Yankees love the locals and want to help them. Swallow you pride and accept some help and friendship from the Outside. Many of us Northern's have family roots int he south and in our blood too! So please don't take offense to our identifying where "your own" local professionals in the medical, judicial, and law enforcement communities are screwing you to high heaven! And you let them because "your pride" will reject any "outside" help.
The most money a time in benevolence I have spend in my entire life has been to help TN victims of their own local corruption. And I am an outsider! I am a friend and not a foe, and I have earned my right to be heard. If only you knew how much!

Here is the correct link to the Channel 5 News Story.

The link in my prior post was just a written story about it, but it did not have the video interview with the investigative reporter with Channel 5 News in Nashville and a cop who can't even lie well. Here it is....

Just read the Consumer Reports and CRMC was ranked number 2 in Tennessee for safety. Only St. Thomas was ranked higher.

CMC was not listed at all...
