OHC offers primary care, urgent care and occupational medicine

Cookeville – Occupational Health Center (OHC) will host an open house and reception to celebrate its official alignment with Interstate Health (IH) at 315 N. Washington Avenue in Cookeville.

The open house will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the ribbon cutting at 3 p.m.

“OHC’s own Dr. Toney Hudson was named Chief Medical Officer for Interstate Health, and OHC has become a clinical hub for the business,” said The Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce (Chamber). “As part of this new relationship, OHC’s name has changed to Interstate Health Cookeville. Please join us in celebrating their new brand that “officially” aligns their clinic with their new network.”

Earlier this year OHC joined IH, an “innovative, technology-enabled medical services company that provides urgent care, primary care and telemedicine services along the nation’s interstate highway system.”

“The mission that my founding partner Dr. James Talmage and I had in opening OHC was to serve the health care needs of rural and working Americans in the Upper Cumberland region,” said Hudson. “Aligning OHC and my career with IH is a meaningful way to make an even greater impact on our community and those who are medically underserved. The vision of IH is the fulfillment of what my team and I have wanted for the drivers we take care of for many years. We are excited to help make that vision a reality by bringing our organizations together.”

OHC offers primary care, urgent care and occupational medicine. IH focuses on the service of the commercial truck drivers that travel up and down Interstate 40 and told the UCBJ that OHC will “continue to serve their current patients and community while connecting to an even broader network of impact.”

IH said Cookeville is strategically situated and frequented by commercial truck drivers, and the mission is to make health care accessible to the transportation industry, local communities and interstate travelers.

“The addition of OHC represents a meaningful milestone in our efforts to improve the health and lives of 3.5 million commercial truck drivers nationwide,” said Jeff Seraphine, CEO of IH. “The location will serve thousands of drivers annually and are eager to watch that impact grow as we work to build a nationwide network of clinics over the next few years.”
