The 17,000-square-foot outpatient facility will provide primary care along with specialized treatment long-needed in the area, according to health care officials.

“We’ve incorporated pediatric therapy, which is really hard to find in the region, have a specially designed area just for pediatrics, and I think the area will really use it a lot,” said Dr. Lisa Piercy, executive vice president of West Tennessee Healthcare.
