St Thomas debuts health clinic expecting 90% Hispanic client base

The Nashville City Paper reports in this article that Saint Thomas has opened a health clinic targeted to serve Hispanic Nashville:

"Saint Thomas Health Services has opened the $2 million Health Center South Clinic to serve Nashville’s growing Hispanic population."

"The new clinic, located at 4928 Edmondson Pike, replaces a Harding Place facility that had accommodated patients since 2001."

"Approximately 90 percent of the patients are expected to be Hispanics, representing about 30 countries in Central and South America, according to Anness. Of that number, about 40 to 50 percent could have undocumented residency status, she added."

"The 12 staff members include nurse practitioners, a physician assistant, medical assistants and social workers."
