The Public Works Administration funded the construction of a new clinic, part of the State Hospital for Mental Diseases (also known as the Spencer State Hospital for Mental Diseases) in Spencer, Roane County. The addition was built in 1937 and was a five-bed facility.
The State Hospital for Mental Diseases closed in July 1989 and demolished in 2005. The condition of the structure is unknown to the Living New Deal.
