Family Care Center of Taylorsville is pleased to welcome Dr. Jonathan Goodnight
to the practice. Goodnight is a native of Taylorsville and returned to
his home community after completing his medical training and family practice
residency at East Tennessee State University, where he won multiple awards
Goodnight is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians as
well as the National Association of EMS Physicians. He has served as Medical
Director for the Alexander County Health Department, Assistant Medical
Director for Alexander County EMS and is active in training and emergency
response for EMS personnel.
Goodnight has deep family roots in Taylorsville. His father and grandfather
both worked as mechanics in town and operated a family-owned garage. His
mother retired following a long career as a school teacher in the community.
Goodnight says lessons from his family have helped to shape his approach
“I think of myself as a combination of a coach and a mechanic,”
Goodnight said. “Some ailments need to be fixed by the mechanic
with special parts and tools, like medication, while others can be addressed
by the patient with my guidance as a coach.”
The Family Care Center of Taylorsville, located at 1668 Highway 16 South,
