JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — A new urgent care center is under construction at 1800 W. Market St. across from Sahib Restaurant and a stone’s throw from Johnson City Medical Center.
FastPace Urgent Care is listed as the end use for a building permit issued in June at the property, where work appears near completion. This will be the eighth FastPace center in Northeast Tennessee, with the others in Elizabethton, Erwin, Jonesborough, Piney Flats, Blountville, Kingsport and Church Hill.
JMB FP Investment out of Knoxville purchased the .53-acre property on May 27, 2022 for $715,000. A sign in front of the construction site shows financing by Mountain Commerce Bank.
FastPace offers a suite of care services and accepts most major insurance plans. The website for the Jonesborough clinic shows it offers urgent care, orthopedic, primary and dermatology care, occupational health, physical therapy and telehealth and behavioral health services.
The centers are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 1-6 p.m. Sundays.
