Our practice is centered on a team-based model providing care in multiple settings including our outpatient clinic, assisted living facilities and skilled and long-term nursing care facilities. By offering services in multiple areas, we can better meet the needs of our communitys seniors and improve health outcomes.
At Blount Senior Care Partners, we are here to care for you. Our clinic brings specialized geriatric care to ambulatory seniors in Blount County and surrounding areas. Having an outpatient clinic allows Blount Senior Care Partners to fulfill its mission of providing optimal continuity of care within all healthcare settings.
Patients already cared for by a primary care physician may be seen for a Geriatric Consultation or for a follow-up visit after leaving a rehab facility.
We are able to provide primary care to seniors without a physician. Blount Senior Care Partners participates in all major medical plans under Medicare.

In the past, a patients primary care physician cared for him or her in the office, in the hospital, and when necessary in the skilled nursing facility.
Blount Senior Care Partners aims to recreate this level of continuity for the patients and families we serve. Because of our close affiliation with Blount Memorial Hospital, we can provide inpatient coverage for our patients when they require admission. Our presence in multiple local skilled nursing facilities allows us to continue seeing our patients through the rehab process.
Dr. James, Dr. Catron, and Dr. Goodemote maintain privileges at Blount Memorial Hospital. In maintaining a presence there, we are able to offer continuity of care between the outpatient and inpatient settings. This means that our facility and clinic patients will be cared for by one of our physicians whenever they require hospital admission. Having a physician who knows the patient can prove invaluable in the acute care setting, particularly when key decisions are needed regarding short and long-term goals of care.
