Health-care offerings in Lenoir City expand

knoxnews.com-Residents in and around Lenoir City have some new options for their health-care needs.

The University of Tennessee Medical Center has opened a new 48,000-square-foot Lenoir City Regional Health Center at 5779 Creekwood Park Blvd.

The facility will house seven primary-care doctors and physical therapy services, but also ancillary services like X-ray, echocardiogram, bone density and lab work. In addition, it will have oncology services, including outpatient visits and chemotherapy.

UT Medical Center spokesman Jim Ragnonese said the hospital system plans to add other outpatient specialty services to the Lenoir City Regional Health Center in the near future, including  cardiology, general surgery, vascular surgery, urogynecology, obstetrics/gynecology and urology.

Steve Ross, UT Medical Center's senior vice president for strategic development, said the facility "also features a community education room where we'll offer programs about management of chronic conditions and numerous other relevant health topics."

Meanwhile, Primary Care Associates, 423 Medical Park Drive, Suite 100, in Lenoir City, has become Fort Loudoun Primary Care. The newly remodeled and expanded clinic, part of Covenant Health, will offer primary care and walk-in services.

The public can meet the medical staff and tour the clinic at an open house 5-7 p.m. June 27.  Register by calling 865-541-4500 or emailing callcenter@covhlth.com.

Last month, dentist Dr. Casey Cho opened a new office at 375 Kelsey Lane in Lenoir City.

Cho's office, part of the Aspen Dental company, provides services ranging from dentures and preventative care to general dentistry and restoration.

To offset cost, the office offers free new-patient exams and X-rays, take patients without dental insurance and have a denture money back guarantee alongside discounted rates at times. The office takes walk-in emergency patients and will also be open for extended hours, including evenings and select Saturdays.
