Bringing Quality Care to Local Communities
|Covenant Health delivers quality local care, with services designed to meet the specific needs of people in our communities.
Seven acute care hospitals located in Knoxville and surrounding areas comprise the foundation of the health system. The hospitals offer comprehensive care, including emergency care, specialty services, and a full range of diagnostics and treatment, provided by board-certified medical staffs.
Three Covenant Health hospitals – Fort Sanders Regional, Methodist, and Parkwest Medical Centers – were named among the top 10 hospitals in Tennessee in 2013 by U.S. News and World Report, recognizing excellence in both overall and specialty care. Covenant Health hospitals also have been recognized for clinical accomplishments by VHA, Inc., a cooperative of non-profit healthcare organizations.
In 2013, the community celebrated the opening of the new 50-bed Roane Medical Center in Harriman. The new hospital brings expanded medical services and sophisticated technology to the people of Roane County.
||In addition to comprehensive hospital services, Covenant Health provides:
- Innovative cancer care and technologies to deliver radiation therapy and other cancer treatment at locations in Knox, Sevier, Anderson and Hamblen counties.
- Nationally recognized care for patients suffering from physical disabilities, stroke and traumatic brain injury at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center and the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center.
- Affiliated physician clinics throughout the region which offer convenient access to primary and specialty care.
- Rehabilitation services including physical therapy, speech therapy, sports medicine, and specialized therapy such as hand therapy and vestibular (balance) rehabilitation, offered at about a dozen Covenant Therapy Centers locations.
The new Roane Medical Center opened in February 2013.
