Sky Ridge Medical Center To Open Multi-Specialty Clinic In Ooltewah

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Sky Ridge Medical Center of Cleveland has announced its decision to open a multi-specialty clinic in Cambridge Square, a mixed-use community currently under development at the intersection of Ooltewah-Georgetown Road and Lee Highway in Ooltewah.


The Sky Ridge practice will include services ranging from prenatal to geriatric health care. The providers offer many years of experience and will represent various specialties such as OB/GYN, Internal Medicine, and Family Practice including pediatrics and adults. Doctors establishing the practice include:


•   Obadias Marquez, MD - Internal Medicine

•   Karisten Djernes, MD  - Board Certified Family Practice

•   Stephen Kerley, DO  - Board Certified OB/GYN



“We are excited for this growth opportunity and to work with the new Cambridge Square Development team,” said Coleman Foss, CEO of SkyRidge Medical Center. “Many of our friends, family and medical professionals live and work in the greater Ooltewah area, so increasing our accessibility in this market was a natural fit, and a step we were very proud to take. We look forward to continued service in the community through the delivery of quality healthcare.” 

Sky Ridge will occupy approximately 5,000 square feet in a brand new building which broke ground earlier this month. Barrier Properties, the Cambridge Square developer, will work directly with Sky Ridge officials in the design and construction of the new facility which will have a total of 10,000 square feet. The building’s completion is slated for spring 2015. River Street Architecture is the lead architect and BP Construction will serve as the general contractor.



“We are thrilled that Sky Ridge has decided to join Cambridge Square,” said Jim Cheney, marketing director for Barrier Properties. “We view their commitment to quality healthcare and our development in Ooltewah as yet another positive sign of this market’s unbelievable potential.”
