New Summit Express Clinic opens

The Summit Express Clinic on Bearden Hill officially opened Nov. 1, 2016; the new clinic at 6537 Kingston Pike in Knoxville is only one mile from the current Wellington Drive location, but the short move is expected to reap big results for patients.

“The Bearden Hill location makes it possible for us to deliver the same services and same high level of care but in a better environment,” said Ranee Guard, vice president of diagnostic and therapeutic services for Summit Medical Group. “Bearden Hill’s Kingston Pike location is much more convenient, and we believe those coming to us for care will appreciate the clean, modern look and feel of the new facility.”

Located next to Calhoun’s in the Sequoyah Place shopping center, the clinic includes five patient rooms. Like all Summit Express Clinics, it is a full-service care center designed to fulfill the everyday and after-hours needs of area residents, whether or not they are under the care of a Summit Medical Group physician. The clinic provides medical treatment, laboratory and X-ray services seven days a week, and walk-ins are welcome.

Summit Express Clinics also are located in Farragut and Fountain City.
