The Tennessee Health Service and Development Agency approved a Certificate of Need for Natchez Center for Behavioral Medicine, LLC, a 16-bed geriatric psychiatric hospital to be located in Dickson. The hospital is a result of a partnership between National HealthCare Corporation and Reliant Healthcare Corporation. The $5.7 million project is set to begin construction in 2022.
This project will be a part of a senior continuum of care complex built on the campus of the TriStar Natchez freestanding emergency room on Turkey Creek Road. Jim Harper, president of Reliant Healthcare Corporation said, “The senior continuum of care complex will provide multidisciplinary geriatric care, and the hospital will add to much-needed services on the future campus.” The hospital will be located adjacent to a proposed 74,000-square-foot 84-unit assisted living and memory care facility. The 14,200-square-foot hospital will provide more than 25 jobs for Dickson County.
National HealthCare Corporation affiliates operate for themselves and third parties 75 skilled nursing facilities with 9,433 beds. The company’s affiliates also operate 24 assisted living communities, five independent living communities, one behavioral health hospital, and 35 home care programs. The company’s other services include Alzheimer’s and memory care units, hospice services, pharmacy services, a rehabilitation services company, and providing management and accounting services to third party post-acute operators.
Reliant Healthcare Corporation is a behavioral health care management firm. The organization has been in operation for 17 years partnering with strategically located hospitals and nursing home provider organizations across the country to help design, build, and operate behavioral health hospitals. The company has developed inpatient facilities as small as 14 beds and as large as 114 beds.
