In June, TwelveStone Health Partners announced the addition of infusion therapy suites to the company's Murfreesboro headquarters. While the company has offered home-based infusion therapy for several years, the leadership team recognized a need for outpatient services, as well. "We are pleased to offer URAC-certified private suites to infusion patients here in Murfreesboro. Until now, patients had to go all the way into Nashville to have treatments," noted TwelveStone CEO Shane Reeves. A physician order is required for the infusion appointments, which are available Monday-Friday until 7 pm and by arrangement on Saturday.
Additionally, the company named family medicine practitioner Chris Beckman, MD, as medical director for the TwelveStone Infusion Center. Serving the area for more than 20 years, he opened Beckman Family Medical in 2004 and is also on staff at Saint Thomas Rutherford. Beckman will continue in his private practice while also overseeing clinical quality at the new center.
Last month, TwelveStone also announced expansion into Ringgold, Ga., just over the state line in the Chattanooga area. Elizabeth Owen, PharmD, will lead operations at the new facility, which includes a pharmacy and infusion services.
