Cookeville Regional Medical Group

Cookeville Regional Medical Group

The Physician Associates of Cookeville Regional is now known as the Cookeville Regional Medical Group (CRMG).  CRMG is a multi-specialty group consisting of primary care and specialty physicians dedicated to caring for you and your family.   

The growing trend nationwide is physician employment by hospitals.  Some physicians have chosen to become employed by Cookeville Regional, allowing them to spend less time on managing their practice and more time with the patient.   However, Cookeville Regional has over 200 physicians on its active medical staff, many of whom are not employed by the hospital. For more information about our entire staff of physicians, click here for our physician directory.

The Cookeville Regional Medical Group has several locations in Cookeville to serve you.
