The city of Winchester is conveniently located in southern Tennessee. Three major metropolitan areas (Huntsville, Chattanooga and Nashville) are within convenient driving distance, each offering a host of cultural, recreational and entertainment activities. The community features top-rated schools, both public and private. The economy is strong and growing steadily, thanks to major employers such as Nissan, Shaw Carpets and Arnold Engineering. Within a short distance is The University of the South, located on a beautiful 10,000-acre campus atop the Cumberland Plateau in Sewanee, Tennessee. This nationally acclaimed liberal arts college also offers graduate studies in theology. The area around Winchester was once used extensively by Native Americans as a hunting and fishing territory. Archaeological excavations in the region have uncovered numerous artifacts and sites.
Winchester surrounds beautiful Tims Ford Lake, which attracts visitors from miles around for its wonderful fishing, boating and water skiing. The 10,700-acre lake is one of the most picturesque in Tennessee and is regarded as one of the top bass fishing and recreational lakes in the Southeast. Year-round fishing also provides a substantial yield of bluegill, catfish and crappie. The park has almost five miles of paved trails that allow the hiker and cyclist to explore its natural surroundings. Tims Ford State Park has a beautiful, L-shaped swimming pool, one of the largest in the Tennessee State Park system, with a 12-foot diving pool, children’s wading pool and a bathhouse. Tims Ford State Park also has a 52-site campground, with water and electric hook-ups at each site. The Bear Trace at Tims Ford is a 6,790-yard golf course designed by The Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus. The course has received widespread acclaim, including being named one of the “Top Ten Places You Can Play” by Golf Magazine and one of the “Best New Destinations” in Tennessee. Situated on a peninsula surrounded by Tims Ford Lake, this bent-grass, links-style par 71 course has been described by one national publication as a “glittering newcomer.” Just down the road in Lynchburg is the Jack Daniels Distillery, the nation’s oldest registered distillery and a favorite tourist destination.
Nestled in renowned Bluegrass horse country, the town of Winchester’s historical roots shape the culture of this vibrant community today. With many artistic offerings and attractions, this small town is rich in opportunity and entertainment.
Clark Regional Medical Center (CRMC) celebrated the grand opening of its new $70 million, 79-bed replacement facility in 2012, which coincided with the hospital’s 95th anniversary. Located adjacent to I-64 and the Bypass in Winchester, the hospital is the first in the state of Kentucky to feature a 100 percent geothermal heating and cooling system, which is 33 percent more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than a traditional HVAC system. In addition to the new replacement facility, a three-story, 45,000 square-foot medical plaza opened on the hospital’s campus in 2012. The $10 million facility houses family medicine, pediatrics, and urgent care, and features specialty practices such as cardiology, oncology, general surgery, gastroenterology and pulmonology. It also includes Clark Regional’s Diagnostic Center for Women, the Center for Rehabilitation, the Center for Infusion Services, a specialty clinic and anticoagulation clinic.
In May of 2015 the hospital broke ground on a 45,000 square foot expansion of the Clark Clinic which will provide space for additional physician practices as well as new services such as cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, a sleep clinic and wound care clinic. The construction is expected to be completed in 2017.
Clark Regional is fully accredited by The Joint Commission and also operates an urgent care clinic in Winchester and rural health clinics in Powell County and Montgomery County.
