The Johnson City Community Health Center (JCCHC) marks a new chapter for the Johnson City Downtown Clinic (JCDC), which the College of Nursing has operated since 1990. The JCDC was originally established to serve the needs of the local homeless population in Johnson City and has expanded over the past 23 years to include the uninsured, underinsured, TennCare enrollees, a growing Hispanic population and medically indigent individuals. Patient contacts in the clinic meet primary care, prenatal care and socialization needs of these various population groups. No one is turned away because of their inability to pay. In addition, many outreach contacts each year are provided to individuals on the street, in shelters and in farm worker camps. Along with the Hancock County School-based Clinics, JCDC is one of only a few nurse-managed community health centers (CHC) in the nation to be designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and is a unique CHC in the nation operating in conjunction with a College of Nursing.
Completed in the fall of 2012, the JCCHC stands as a state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary facility for the delivery of primary health care services and the education of students.
The 23,000-square-foot facility offers double the space available to see patients. The College of Clinical and Rehabilitative Health Sciences will be a primary partner with the College of Nursing in delivering care to patients and educating students there, but the new clinic will bring together many of the programs of study in all five colleges that make up ETSU's Division of Health Sciences and other departments in the university.
