As students return to Cumberland University to begin the Spring semester on January 17, they will now have access to on-campus professional healthcare resources. The university announced the opening of its new Health Services facility serving students, faculty and staff.
With a goal of increasing the campus community’s accessibility to quality healthcare, Dr. Cristy Stumb of Stumb Healthcare Professionals, LLC and wife of University President Paul C. Stumb is relocating her Carthage-based practice along with over 30 years of professional experience to Lebanon, Tennessee and specifically to Cumberland’s campus community. Dr. Stumb is donating her services and expertise to Cumberland as a token of appreciation for her alma mater.
“The university has always worked to identify and meet the needs of the campus community and I am both eager and excited to begin serving the Cumberland family in this new way,” said Dr. Stumb.
Dr. Stumb graduated from Cumberland in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing before earning a Master of Science in Nursing at Vanderbilt University in 2005 and a Master of Business Administration from Cumberland in 2008. Dr. Stumb then went on to receive her Doctor of Nursing Practice from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
“As we continue to grow we are always looking for opportunities to expand the resources we offer our campus community,” said Vice President for Facilities and Services Ron Pavan. “Being able to be a university that provides students, faculty, and staff convenient and affordable healthcare has been a goal of Cumberland’s for a long time, and we are thrilled that CU Health Services is now a reality.”
The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Appointments can be scheduled online at https://www.cumberland.edu/health-services/.
