Local Physician Will Make House Calls To Clients of Family Staffing Solutions, Inc.

New service reintroduces delivery of healthcare in the home

Murfreesboro, TN–Well-known Murfreesboro physician, Dr. Jim Garner, has expanded his practice to include house calls for clients of Family Staffing Solutions, Inc.  on an exclusive basis announced Becci Bookner, president and CEO of Family Staffing Solutions, Inc. of Murfreesboro. Bookner believes that Family Staffing Solutions is the first personal care company in Tennessee to provide this service to its clients through an alliance with a private medical practitioner.

“The return of house call visits by a doctor is  welcome and needed by  many older people in our community who simply cannot  manage the trip to the doctor’s office,” stated Bookner.  “Clients of our company may now again access the familiar and longtime appreciated service of a doctor’s house calls in the privacy and convenience of their homes.”

Dr. Garner is an internal medicine specialist and a lifelong resident of Murfreesboro who has a sincere interest in the health care of community residents. He has served in many prominent positions including Chief of Medicine and Chief of Staff at Middle Tennessee Medical Center. His philosophy of medical practice combines the foundation of evidence-based knowledge with commonsense and compassion.

“It is our mission to take care of people.  The alliance with Family Staffing Solutions will create new and innovative ways to facilitate this mission as the health care climate continues to change and evolve,” stated Dr. Garner, a graduate of the University of Tennessee Medical School who completed his residency at Pensacola Educational Program.

Bookner noted, “Many of our clients who are enjoying the advantages of remaining in their homes, independent, and in charge of their lives have, in the past, had to access their personal physician by traveling to the doctor’s office or to the emergency room.  Through this strategic partnership with a physician, clients of Family Staffing Solutions can, upon request, now can access Dr. Garner’s staff to provide in-home visits for their primary care medical needs.”

She pointed out that this service is distinctly different from the ‘concierge medicine’ practice that is emerging across the country.  She noted that the personal access to Dr. Jim Garner, provided exclusively to the clients of Family Staffing Solutions can provide the same level of access to primary medical careas concierge medicine without the annual fee.

“Family Staffing Solutions, Inc. maintains a unique position locally and nationwide within a profession that is experiencing dynamic change in ways to care for loved ones.  The introduction of this new exclusive service by our company is one more innovative way that meeting the specialized care needs of our aging loved ones is changing,” concluded Bookner, founder of the second oldest privately owned company of its type in the United States in 1993 and of Family Staffing Solutions, Inc. (FSS, Inc.) in 1999.
