Siloam Health has expanded access to high-quality healthcare for Nashville's underserved and medically vulnerable populations through a new clinic in Antioch. The organization's second facility opened in late June at 2717 Murfreesboro Pike and offers acute care for minor illnesses and injuries, behavioral health consultations, and vital community health services. Care is available at the clinic primarily through walk-in or same day appointments.
"We are thrilled for the opportunity to expand services to this important community where so many of our patients live," said Morgan Wills, MD, president & CEO of Siloam Health. "Siloam Health Antioch is strategically designed to overcome barriers to access and capacity by moving closer to where the patients are."
Siloam Health, a faith-based, not-for-profit health care organization based in the Melrose area, has served Nashville's culturally marginalized immigrant and refugee populations for nearly 30 years. Antioch, which boasts the city's highest concentration of immigrant residents, has grown significantly in recent years, but nonprofit services have not kept pace with the need. It has also been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has exposed and exacerbated underlying challenges related to transportation, housing, language barriers, and access to services. Siloam Health Antioch will also serve as a base for the organization's community health worker program, which serves patients from over 80 homelands and more than 70 language groups.
