Smithville may soon be getting a new clinic.
Fast Pace Urgent Care has announced plans to open such a facility in Smithville near the intersection of East Broad and Oak Street.
According to the company's website, Fast Pace clinics provide treatments for a wide range of illnesses, injuries, and common conditions and provide a variety of wellness, diagnostic and screening services. Open seven days a week with extended hours, Fast Pace Urgent Care offers patients the convenience of short wait times and the ability to be seen by a provider without an appointment. Fast Pace accepts most insurance providers and offers affordable self-pay prices for uninsured patients. Each Fast Pace clinic features multiple exam rooms, on-site lab testing and X-ray capabilities
Since 2009 when Stan Bevis, Family Nurse Practitioner and President, founded the company, Fast Pace has grown from one clinic in Collinwood to nearly 20 clinics throughout Tennessee. With expansion comes the convenience of being able to be treated at any of the Fast Pace locations without the hassle of transferring insurance and payment information or medical history. The clinics are electronically linked so that if you have to be seen at a clinic miles from home your information is available to healthcare professionals on the spot.
Though the growth continues, there is still very much the same “small town” feel. Each clinic is staffed by locals, and they also provide support staff – maintenance, landscaping, construction and cleaning crews. Each clinic supports the community through a membership in their local Chambers of Commerce and by sponsorships of everything from community events, to local charities, to sports teams, and clinic staff is encouraged to volunteer wherever their interests lie.
“Fast Pace is about meeting community needs and providing quality care to those who need it, wherever they need it,” said Bevis.
