New Arlington healthcare facility to provide critical services
Town officials joined representatives of Baptist Memorial Hospital to cut the ribbon on the town’s first free-standing emergency department. An adjoined primary care practice and urgent care facility will open next door with an orthopedic practice to come later this year. The facility includes an imaging center. The integration of emergency care, urgent care and primary care under the same roof can also improve patient outcomes with hospital officials calling tertiary facilities like Arlington’s “the future of healthcare.” The facility will also provide critical healthcare services between Memphis and the Blue Oval City development. Arlington officials have been working with Baptist Hospital to bring a healthcare facility to their community for more than 25 years.
