East Tennessee State University built the new Johnson City Community Health Center, a state-of-the-art facility that will offer patients a wide spectrum of health care services under one roof. The JCCHC replaces and builds on the legacy of the Johnson City Downtown Clinic (JCDC), which got its start in 1990 in the basement of the Salvation Army. The JCCHC will be managed by the ETSU College of Nursing, which provides the board-certified nurse practitioners who deliver most of the primary and preventive care.

The size of the facility – more than double the size of that it replaced – as well as ETSU’s focus on inter-professional education and health care delivery will yield significant new benefits for patients. Other programs from the university and the Academic Health Sciences Center at ETSU will deliver services at the clinic, and ETSU students training under faculty supervision will see patients there as well.
