About NHC Place Sumner
NHC Place, Sumner is an affiliate of National Healthcare Corporation, a leader in post-acute care and one of the oldest long term health care providers. NHC was founded by Dr. Carl E. Adams, a physician and lifelong resident of Middle Tennessee. Dr. Adams and Jennie Mae Adams, had a long-held dream of building a “campus concept” of life care facilities for older adults.
Their objective was to provide older adults with a beautiful, secure, and caring environment as they aged, free from the daily worries of cooking, cleaning, and caring for a home. Dr. Adams also hoped to provide a way for married couples to stay together, even if the health of one required a different degree of care.
