West Tennessee Bone & Joint Announces New Name, New Location


At the milestone of its 50th anniversary, West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic is changing its name to West Tennessee Bone & Joint Institute and announcing the construction of a new medical facility at 50 Capital Drive in Jackson.

The new 55,000-square-foot medical facility, on the northeast corner of U.S. 40 and U.S. 412, will be large enough to host its Jackson providers and services under one roof. Construction of the facility on a 10-acre site in Columns III on Vann Drive began in 2023. It is expected to open in early 2025.

“We are thrilled to introduce the patients to this impressive facility that embodies our dedication to their well-being and convenience,” said Donna Klutts, CEO, West Tennessee Bone & Joint Institute. “By consolidating our facilities and clinical resources and investing in the latest medical technology, we are poised to elevate the quality of care we provide and modernize the patient experience.”



The organization’s commitment to serving West Tennessee with orthopedics, sports medicine, occupational injuries and interventional pain management is nationally recognized, she said.

West Tennessee Bone & Joint’s name change to Institute reflects the organization’s expanded presence of 11 clinics, more services and increased number of providers across West Tennessee.

The new facility in Jackson has been meticulously designed to offer a wide range of specialized services in the fields of Orthopedics and Interventional Pain Management. The institute’s commitment to making patient convenience a top priority is exemplified by the addition of two advanced MRI units with extended operational hours, expanded Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation areas, multiple procedure rooms and additional clinical areas.

The advanced MRIs will have a larger patient weight capacity as well as the ability to perform MRIs on patients that have implanted devices. The nearest MRI with these latest implant technologies and less utilization of helium is in Nashville.

The new facility will include:

  • Comprehensive Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Care: The Bone & Joint Institute will continue its tradition of excellence in orthopedics and sports medicine, offering a wide range of services, including surgical and non-surgical treatments for musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Interventional Pain Management: Patients seeking relief from chronic pain will benefit from specialized interventional pain management services tailored to individual needs.
  • Physical, Occupational and Sports Medicine Therapy: Unlike any in the West Tennessee area, this facility will have both indoor and outdoor turf, updated equipment and staffing to accommodate patients’ needs in “keeping them active.”

“The physicians and staff are excited to see our new contemporary facility start to take its shape,” said Jason Hutchison, M.D., President of West Tennessee Bone & Joint Institute.

“Our goal is to provide the community, providers and staff with a beautiful, modern but very functional facility that will allow us to meet all the musculoskeletal needs of our growing community. We intend to offer expanded services, expanded hours and an unparalleled patient experience at this new facility.”

The West Tennessee Bone & Joint team partnered with the Gary Taylor Development team, Fisher Construction and Vaughan Associates Architects to design and construct this facility.

Founded by Lowell Stonecipher, M.D., West Tennessee Bone & Joint Institute has been the premiere organization providing musculoskeletal care, orthopedics, interventional pain, hand, podiatry, occupational health and sports medicine to this area for more than 50 years.
