Cempa Community Care has added Zach Campbell, AGNP, to its medical staff. The addition of Mr. Campbell as a nurse practitioner is yet another step for the organization as it grows its primary care services, officials said.
“As we continue to add to the reach of our primary care services, having Zach with us will enable the organization to serve more patients across our region,” said Shannon Stephenson, CEO at Cempa Community Care. “I am so proud of the medical staff at Cempa. They have established themselves as a premier team of healthcare practitioners, each of whom pursues the Cempa mission with enthusiasm and conviction. Zach, I know, is the right fit to help us meet the needs of our friends and neighbors.”
Founded in 1986 as the HIV/AIDS epidemic raged, Cempa Community Care — known then as Chattanooga CARES — was established as an HIV/AIDS resource organization. Today, while still delivering HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment services, Cempa’s healthcare offerings have expanded, including primary care.
"Mr. Campbell’s expertise will enable Cempa to expand its primary care footprint," officials said.
A Nashville-area native, Mr. Campbell completed his undergraduate studies at Middle Tennessee State University before graduating in August 2022 from Vanderbilt University as an adult gerontology nurse practitioner.
