Neighborhood Health, a non-profit network of 11 Neighborhood Health centers in and around Nashville and Lebanon, Tennessee, has begun construction on renovations to its Eastside Clinic in East Nashville.
In March 2020, the clinic was hit by an EF-3 strength tornado that was fueled by winds of over 160 miles per hour. The roof was ripped off and the entire building flooded. Damage to the clinic displaced its more than 8,100 patients, all of whom had to be seen at one of the other 10 clinics. The building’s shell remained empty until renovations began.
The restored 12,000-square-foot building will feature a two-story lobby with stairs, an elevator and a small waiting area. The clinic will have a large patient waiting area and a children’s play nook. Nine exam rooms will be divided into pediatrics, general practice and women’s health, with rooms for labs, vitals and a centrally located nurses’ station. Separate check-in and checkout areas are included in the design to improve patient and visitor flow. There will also be offices for providers, special services and behavioral health.
The clinic renovation is led by IKON Construction, Inc., working in partnership with architectural firm Wold | HFR Design, to redesign the clinic and ensure it meets the community’s needs.
