Former JC Specialty Hospital repurposed for new Frontier Health service facility

A medical facility that shuttered in 2010 and then became a nerve center for Ballad Health information tech services will soon be a new mental health facility operated by Frontier Health.

Frontier Health recognized a need in the region, so they began this initiative to meet that need.

President and CEO for Frontier Health, Kristie Hammonds says, “As the region’s premier mental health and substance abuse provider, we have identified the need to increase the availability of services to individuals in our area who are in need of addiction services. The purchase of this building will impact Frontier’s capability to reach these individuals through the expansion and enhancement to our existing substance abuse/crisis services. We will combine our Crisis Stabilization Unit, Walk-In/23 hour Observation Services, Magnolia Ridge, Mobile Crisis and Triage services under one roof.”

Services to help those with substance abuse precipitated the need for the purchase of the former Johnson City Specialty Hospital at Unaka Avenue which will enable Frontier to expand and combine their Crisis Stabilization Unit, Walk-In/23 hour Observation Services, Magnolia Ridge, Mobile Crisis and Triage service into one area.

Ballad Health executive Anthony Keck said Frontier is a strong partner with their healthcare services and is glad to see the building being used to help those in the Tri-Cities.

The facility is scheduled to be ready for patients in July of this year.
