Siskin Hospital's East Brainerd Clinic Has New Location

Monday, May 21, 2018

Siskin Hospital’s outpatient therapy services clinic on Gunbarrel Road is slated to move to The Pavilion at Panorama in June. 

The new building on Panorama Drive, just off East Brainerd Road, is a much larger space and is more accessible to patients driving to their appointments, said officials. 

“The additional space will give us more room for private treatment areas and exercise equipment,” said James Gose, DPT, clinic manager. “This will allow us more options in addressing our patients’ strength and mobility issues.” 

Dr. Gose said the current wait time will be further reduced with two additional full-time therapists and a more favorable environment. 

“The addition of Direct Access and our favorable patient satisfaction and outcomes has led to significant increases in patient volume,” said Vice President of Administration Tod Cain. “Moving our East Brainerd outpatient clinic makes it possible to extend our services to more patients.” 

The Direct Access program allows individuals to refer themselves to Siskin Hospital’s Outpatient Therapy Services for physical therapy treatment. 

The East Brainerd clinic has operated at its current Gunbarrel Road location for six years.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

The idea was hatched a couple of years ago. Some Tennessee football fanatic had gotten wind that an Oklahoma player had documented his baptism to havoc inside Neyland Stadium. Offensive lineman Ty Darlington was part of that 2015 double-overtime slugfest against the Vols and, afterwards, remembered OU’s 34-27 win – after being down by 17 points earlier – was an absolute “dissertation” ...
