Summit Medical Group and Tellico Village Property Owners Association (POA) recently broke ground on a new primary care facility to open within the lifestyle community in early fall. Summit Medical Group at Tellico Village will serve the healthcare needs of the residents and surrounding area.
Summit Medical Group is East Tennessee’s largest primary care organization. Plans to open a primary care office in Tellico Village marks the first Summit facility of its kind within a residential community in East Tennessee.
“Providing healthcare on-site within a residential community is a forward-looking concept,” Summit Medical Group CEO Ed Curtis said. “We’ve partnered to bring the excellence and convenience of a Summit primary care practice to the residents of Tellico Village and the local community. We’re excited to announce more in the coming months about the location’s services and the physician and providers who will serve patients there.”
Summit Medical Group at Tellico Village will offer comprehensive primary care, digital X-ray and lab services, physical therapy and specialty service partners. Most insurance plans are accepted.
“Tellico Village is one of the Southeast’s premier communities, and we’re known for superior amenities that help residents enjoy a truly special and fulfilling active lifestyle,” said Tellico Village POA General Manager Winston Blazer. “Bringing Summit Medical Group on site was the clear choice to extend our array of top-quality services and amenities into a new category of healthcare. It provides our residents with the convenience they expect to help them continue the lifestyle they enjoy.”
