An Ideal Location
Centrally located between Nashville and Knoxville, Crossville offers physicians many opportunities of a “big city practice” without the “big-city, managed care” hassles. The climate provides enjoyable golf year round. Winter temperatures are in the 40s and 50s, summer highs average in the 80s, and the fall and spring temperatures fall in between.
Recreation and leisure activities include hunting, fishing, boating, water activities, hiking or taking in a play at the Cumberland County Playhouse. With its mountains, 9 lakes, 11 golf courses, state park, 4 distinct seasons, no state income tax, available and affordable real estate and ease of interstate access, Crossville sets itself apart from many small towns that physicians might visit when looking to establish a medical practice.
