Community is an important part of a neighborhood experience.
At Harbor of Health, the medical providers and staff work hard to be part of the Downtown community, providing health care to its Harbor Town neighborhood as well as greater Downtown Memphis. Harbor Town is a unique neighborhood on Mud Island, where residents walk to the grocery store, the park or the nearby coffee shop.
And at Harbor of Health, they can walk in for their primary care. Being part of a community where a health care clinic is a walkable part of the neighborhood is a rarity in Memphis, but it’s the norm at Harbor of Health, a Regional One Health primary care facility in the heart of Harbor Town.
Dr. Karen Andrews, internal medicine and pediatrics physician at Harbor of Health.
“It’s a neighborhood feel, which makes it convenient for people who live here on the island,” said Dr. Karen Andrews, a board-certified internal medicine and pediatrics physician who staffs Harbor of Health. “People can walk over from their home and that’s definitely unique, especially in Memphis. We’re across from the grocery, and the little square has a coffee shop and dentist. It’s a great neighborhood set up, which is nice. I think the people who live here appreciate it.”
That neighborhood vibe is only part of what makes Harbor of Health a key amenity in Downtown Memphis. Anyone can get care at Harbor of Health, no matter if they live in Harbor Town, South Main, Midtown, Collierville or Arkansas. It’s also a convenient location for Downtown employees, whether they work just across the harbor bridge or at a variety of employers in the Downtown core.
Plus, the whole family can receive care at Harbor of Health. That means dad can get an annual physical, mom can get a sinus infection looked at and their toddler son can get his shots. Dr. Andrews said establishing those long-term relationships with patients and their whole family is an important aspect to the care at Harbor of Health.
