Southern Tennessee Regional Health System Unveiling New Approach to Healthcare

October 3, 2017

Southern Tennessee Regional Health System is proud to announce an innovative change to the way we provide healthcare to the community. This change is emblematic of the health system’s new direction in caring for the needs of the fast moving, ever changing, modern family.

Starting this October, a number of the physician practices owned by Southern Tennessee Regional Health System (STRHS) will have a new name, First Choice Health.  The new name represents a shift from a more traditional, slower paced style of health care to a new, highly flexible, patient-centric style of caring for our community. This change will positively impact every community we serve.

“We have listened to our patients and are adapting to meet their, and their family’s healthcare needs while also providing them wellness programs for a healthy life,” said system president, Rob Followell.  “Southern Tennessee’s First Choice Health locations will provide accessible health care with options like walk-in patient care or calling for an appointment.  The largest change is our desire to remain flexible enough to handle even the most urgent need without interrupting or delaying the care for our more traditional patients.

The first locations changing names will be Winchester Family Medicine/Southern Tennessee Primary Care located on the Cowan Highway in Winchester and Hunters Lane Medical Center located behind in Tullahoma. The rebrand and subsequent re-launch of these clinics will be completed by November when making them the flagship locations for this new brand.
