Southern Tennessee Regional Health System-Winchester recently announced a partnership with 7 Springs Orthopedics, a Nashville-based leading provider of orthopedics and physical-therapy services.

The expanded location will open Monday at 116 Bible Crossing Road in Decherd. 

Through the partnership, the organizations will work together to enhance and improve existing orthopedic services in a new, convenient location for patients in the communities in southern Tennessee and beyond.

Beginning on Monday, providers from STRHS-Winchester and 7 Springs Orthopedics will work together at a newly expanded facility in Decherd to provide comprehensive orthopedic and physical-therapy services, including the diagnosis and treatment of all types of muscle, bone, and joint pain whether due to injury or simply age-related wear and tear.

“We’re excited about how we will work together to strengthen access to excellent, comprehensive orthopedic services in our community,” said Cliff Wilson, the CEO of STRHS-Winchester/Sewanee “This innovative partnership reflects our commitment to always exploring opportunities to deliver the best possible care close to home. The partnership will be driven by the skill and compassion of our talented team, and together we will serve our patients through an excellent, customer-oriented experience.”

The expanded location will provide community members with high-quality orthopedic care along with same-day or next-day appointments and no provider-referral requirements.

“We are looking forward to working with the Southern Tennessee Regional Health System-Winchester team and helping to build on the already strong orthopedic and physical therapy services provided in the community today,” said Brant Bell, vice president and founder of 7 Springs Orthopedics. “We founded 7 Springs because we knew this model for orthopedics could help provide high-quality care in a friendly environment convenient to both the patient and their families.”

7 Springs Orthopedics is a multi-clinic provider of comprehensive orthopedic care, offering a wide array of services to treat everything from musculoskeletal pain and injuries to complex fractures, spinal issues, and pain-management needs. This partnership with STRHS-Winchester will mark 7 Springs’ 10th location in the Middle Tennessee market.

The company’s model aligns with the shifting healthcare climate towards accessible, patient-centered and convenient same-day services.

“We are looking forward to partnering with 7 Springs Orthopedics to provide excellent, patient-centered orthopedic and physical-therapy services,” said Aaron Lewis, senior vice president for Physician Enterprise & Strategic Growth for LifePoint Health, of which STRHS-Winchester is a part of. “We are always proud to work with likeminded organizations to provide affordable, convenient access to high-quality care that helps us achieve our mission of making communities healthier.”
