The Jackson Clinic and Baptist Memorial Health Care hosted a grand opening for The Jackson Clinic-Baptist Outpatient Campus, a first-of-its-kind, 155,000-square-foot medical campus in Jackson, Tennessee. Nearly 200 guests attended the event on Monday, Nov. 6.

The two-story, $80-million development is home to a 51,000-square-foot outpatient surgery department, diagnostic services, 12 patient exam rooms, Green Frog Coffee & Grill on the first floor and 136 patient exam rooms on the second floor.

The outpatient surgery department, managed by Baptist, includes 34 pre- and post-outpatient beds with four secluded rooms for children, two endoscopy rooms, eight operating rooms, eight post-anesthesia care units and a vascular lab.

“We are pleased to join The Jackson Clinic, a top-notch multispecialty group practice with a long history in Jackson and an outstanding reputation, as we expand our presence in West Tennessee,” said Jason Little, president and CEO of Baptist. “We worked closely together to design a patient-friendly campus with comfort amenities and advanced medical advancements and technology. There is nothing else like this outpatient surgery facility in Jackson, and it is an important advancement in outpatient surgical care for West Tennessee.”

The new outpatient medical campus will offer audiology, cardiac testing, infusion, ophthalmology, physical therapy, women’s imaging and retail pharmacy services. Surgery services will include cardiology; ear, nose and throat; general; OB-GYN; plastic; podiatry; and urology for patients as young as 2 years old.

“The Jackson Clinic-Baptist Outpatient Campus is the future of health care. Through our collaboration with Baptist, Rendina Healthcare Real Estate and Flintco, we’ve been able to combine the latest in medical design with technology and clinical advancements to develop a modern medical campus that meets current and future demands for convenient access to quality outpatient surgery care,” said Mark Allen, CEO of The Jackson Clinic. “Patients will have a seamless experience that will result in high-quality care and better outcomes.”
