Excitement is building as the second phase of Murfreesboro Medical Clinic’s new building nears completion at 1272 Garrison Drive in the Murfreesboro Gateway area. On February 11, 2013, patients will start to utilize the new 155,000 square feet addition, which is joined to the existing 78,000 square feet facility which opened in 2008. On the side of the newest structure is a conspicuously large MMC logo to serve as a beacon for the community. It stands out boldly in the neighborhood, proudly announcing the presence of the largest multi-specialty clinic in the region. Joseph A. Peay, CEO of Murfreesboro Medical Clinic and SurgiCenter states, “The new and expanded facility will provide a better working environment for MMC’s physicians, but more importantly, it will allow those physicians to better serve the needs of their patients and our growing community in a new, state-of-the-art facility.”

Murfreesboro Medical Clinic Released the Following:
The staff of 540, including almost 70 doctors, will be able to serve patients more efficiently in the new facility and with new equipment. This process officially began in 2007 with construction beginning on the first phase of the building. When it opened in 2008, it included an expanded SurgiCenter of Murfreesboro, an Infusion Center, Comprehensive Breast Center, Radiology and Laboratory Services as well as the Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Ophthalmology, and Otolaryngology (ENT) Departments and several other health care providers (Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee, Restorative Health Services, Home Care Solutions, Tennessee Retina, and St. Thomas Heart. Shortly thereafter, MMC also moved its Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department as well as added 3 new specialty departments with physicians specializing in Allergy/Immunology, Orthopedics/Sports Medicine, and Physical Medicine/Pain Management.
This new addition allows all of the remaining clinical departments and ancillary services to relocate to the same building. These clinical departments include Dermatology, Endocrinology, Internal and Family Medicine, Neurology, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pediatrics, Podiatry, Rheumatology, Urology, and Vascular Surgery. Also, the Laboratory and Radiology Departments will expand while NexSlim Medical Weight Loss, U Medi Spa and Boutique, Internal Medicine Walk-in Clinic, the Diabetes Care/Anticoagulation Clinic, and the MMC Vein Center will be moving into their new space. Dr. James Carter, MMC President, noted, “Having all of MMC’s physicians and staff back under one roof will help facilitate patient convenience when referrals are needed as well as communication among a patient’s treating physicians. A patient benefits when physicians can collaborate and communicate on a case more easily, and our new building facilitates that communication.”
“MMC already stands out as a leading health care provider in Middle Tennessee, but what the new facility has to offer upon completion will not only distinguish us further, but it will create the opportunity to serve even more patients”, stated Denise Flanagan, Director of Operations. The physician-owned multi-specialty group sees over 30,000 patients per month, averages 150 new patients per week, and performs an average of 680 surgical procedures per month.
64 years and counting…their building is new, their surroundings in which they practice will look different, but their 64 years of serving the healthcare needs of the community is a demonstration of their strong commitment to serve your family with the best healthcare possible.
