A Message of Thanks for Employees and Community

As the holiday season brings 2022 to a close, I want to share a message of thanks acknowledging the incredible work that Covenant Health employees do every day. No matter their role, the difference they make in the lives of those we serve is remarkable. As I think of the things I’m most thankful for, our Covenant Health family members – our employees, physicians and volunteers – are always top of mind. Please take a moment to watch our newest commercial, which expresses gratitude to Covenant Health employees for the care they provide “in every moment.”

I’m also grateful for others who support our health system in many ways. Our board members provide invaluable service through their dedication to Covenant Health’s mission. Many community leaders and local organizations share our commitment to improving the quality of life in East Tennessee. And we are blessed by generous donors who contribute financially to our health system.   

It is with pride that we serve our community with more than 2 million patient encounters that we have at Covenant Health each year. Every day we pledge to put patients first, strive for excellence and make Covenant Health the first and best choice. It is truly a privilege to serve our communities.

To you and your loved ones, my best wishes for many blessings this holiday season.
