Children’s Clinic Breaks Ground on New Clinic
TUPELO, Miss.—Officials with Children’s Clinic-Tupelo and Children’s Clinic-Saltillo announced today that the clinics will merge next summer and move into The Grandstand at Fairpark, a new development by Century Construction.
Children’s Clinic is a partnership of North Mississippi Medical Center and Children’s of Mississippi, the umbrella organization that includes all pediatric care affiliated with the University of Mississippi Medical Center, including Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson. The new 15,476-square-foot clinic will occupy the entire bottom floor of The Grandstand and is more than double the size of both current clinics combined.
The Children’s Clinic medical staff includes pediatricians Drs. Jennifer Grisham, Benjamin Meeks, Katie Meyer, Amy Price, Charles Robertson, Van Stone, Eric Street, Veronica Valdez and nurse practitioners Tina King and Lauren Parrish.
The new facility will feature 27 exam rooms, each outfitted with infant scales, as well as private breastfeeding rooms for nursing mothers. Plans call for separate and spacious waiting areas for sick and well visits. The new clinic will also include a laboratory, procedure room, and vision and hearing screening rooms.
Target date for opening is June 2021.
