Clinics

College of Nursing

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 28 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.
