Nova Medical Centers to open Brainerd clinic

Nova Medical Centers, the nation's largest occupational health services company, will open a facility at 5779 Brainerd Road in Chattanooga later this month.

The new center, which will be open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., is one of three new centers being opened in Tennesee this month.

"In the first quarter of 2014, Nova Medical Centers will aggressively enter the Tennessee workers' compensation market with four offices in three cities," said Bruce Meymand, chief operating officer for Nova Medical Centers.

Nova Medical Centers has expanded its footprint across 45 locations in Texas, Georgia, and very recently, Tennessee.

Nova treats on-the-job injuries, conducts pre-employment services and screens, and offers preventative services such as vaccinations and flu shots.
