Who can I talk to at the HRC?
Each HRC location is staffed daily by a caring, experienced registered nurse and other health professionals, including a registered dietitian. Take a look at our monthly calendar and see when physicians and other specialists will be here for health screenings or classes on topics that interest you. All classes are free unless otherwise noted on the calendar, but registration is required. Call 800-888-5551 to register for a class.
Where are the Health Resources Centers?
We have two locations in the Tri-Cities:
- The Mall at Johnson City – The HRC is in the lower level of the mall beside the Belk womens’ store. Some classes and events are held in the Annex located at the back of the mall between the Belk women’s store and the Belk home store. Enter from Parking Lot #17 and look for the green awning.
- Kingsport Town Center – The Indian Path Health Resources Center in Kingsport is located on the upper level of the mall near JCPenney.
When is the HRC open?
Both locations are open Monday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
