JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

The Johnson City Community Health Clinic celebrates it's year anniversary.

The clinic moved to its current facility on North State of Franklin Rd. last year.

Visitors could tour the $6.8 million dollar site Thursday, as part of the celebration.

There were also members of the ETSU College of Nursing and College of Clinical and Rehabilitation Health Sciences at the facility.

"Since we've opened these doors we have seen an increase and certainly with the Affordable Care Act coming into operation in January and now being able to sign up, we've seen an increased number of individuals come and sign up for that," said Wendy Nehring, the director of ETSU's College of Nursing.

Nehring told us they mostly serve unemployed or low income residents but over the last year they've seen clients from across a bigger range of incomes.

We were told about 12,000 patients came to the facility this year.
