Saint Thomas Medical Partners is proud to announce the opening of a new full-service care center in Murfreesboro, part of Rutherford County.
“Saint Thomas Health – New Salem was built to provide for the growing Murfreesboro population,” said Gordon Ferguson, President and CEO of Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital. “We want all of our patients to have easy access to primary care, so this location is opening with eight primary care providers.”
The new care center is designed to meet patients’ medical needs close to home with a broad offering of primary care, outpatient rehabilitation, on-site lab testing, Premier Radiology imaging services, ExpressCare and more, all under one roof.
“Our new care centers tailor to the needs of each community,” said Fahad Tahir, President and CEO of Saint Thomas Medical Partners. “We researched and identified the services that are in high demand, but difficult to access in these communities, and put all of these services in one place to simplify our patients’ overall care experience.”
St. Thomas and the Rutherford County Convention and Visitors Bureau held a ribbon cutting at the facility located at 2723 New Salem Hwy in Murfreesboro.
“We are thankful to have Saint Thomas Health as a major employer and a provider of care for the citizens of Rutherford County,” said Paul Latture, President of the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce. “It is encouraging that they are increasing their commitment to our community with the Saint Thomas Health – New Salem facility.”
