Expansion marks third project with J&S Construction
Crossville – Plateau Pediatrics (Plateau) will soon expand operations at 3234 Miller Avenue after breaking ground in Crossville last week. The project marks the third between J&S Construction and Plateau following an expansion in 2009. The latest expansion will add 7,000 sq. ft. to the 16,000 sq. ft. facility. It should allow Plateau, one of the largest pediatricians in the Upper Cumberland, to double its capacity.
42nd District State Representative and Director of Business Development at J&S Construction Ryan Williams told the Upper Cumberland Business Journal (UCBJ) the groundbreaking needed a little bit of help from mother nature.
“We needed 37 minutes of no rain, and we got 40 minutes,” said Williams. “It went great, and it was great to have Mayor (Allen) Foster and the EMA Director there. Stakeholders, patients and even a lot of kids showed up.”
Williams said it has always been great working with Plateau.
“They are an ideal client,” said Williams. “We have done a lot of projects with them and they are good people.”
The project is important for a lot of reasons.
“There are a lot of challenges to healthcare right now,” said Williams. “Rural medical care, in particular a specialist like Pediatricians, is really important. It’s exciting to see the growth, but they also employ at least 40 families and allow them to provide for their families. In addition to healthcare, they are really stimulating the economy.”
Breaking ground – Along with J&S staff and family, Cumberland County officials and officials from the Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce were present for the groundbreaking.
According to Plateaupediatrics.com, the practice will “provide competent, accessible and friendly pediatric primary health care” and serves all patients, regardless of the ability to pay a sliding scale discount program. They also offer discounts for essential services whether or not the patient has insurance. For more information call (931) 707-8700 or visit plateaupediatrics.com.
