New Saint Thomas facility will nearly triple size of Hispanic-focused clinic

"Saint Thomas Health Services expects to break ground soon on a $3 million clinic aimed at serving Nashville's growing Hispanic community."

"The 9,000-square-foot stand-alone building is to be located at Nolensville Pike near the Harding Place intersection. Construction is to begin immediately following the ground breaking Sept. 30. Completion of the project is expected in spring 2005."

"The existing 3,500-square-foot clinic was opened in December 2001 after a thorough study by the hospital to determine the level and type of needs of Nashville's multicultural population, said Greg Pope, vice president of Saint Thomas' philanthropic foundation."

"Saint Thomas considers the facility to be an 'outreach clinic designed to meet the multiple needs of new immigrants locating in Nashville,' particularly Hispanics, said Nancy Anness, executive director of community health centers for the hospital. Patients of Hispanic ethnicity make up about 85 percent of the existing clinic's patient volume."
