Thompson Cancer Survival Center

Thompson Cancer Survival Center was born from the vision of B. Ray Thompson, who believed residents of our area deserve world-class cancer care, right here in Knoxville. And since 1989, Thompson Cancer Survival Center has provided hope and care to patients and their families fighting cancer by bringing cancer “firsts,” like innovative treatments and clinical trials, to our region.

Our Cancer Physicians

When you’re facing a cancer diagnosis, you want the best physicians on your team. Most cancer patients will be treated by a team of oncologists (physicians who specialize in the treatment of cancer), who each play an important and unique role in your treatment.

A Not-For-Profit, Community-Owned Healthcare System

We are committed to improving the quality of life in East Tennessee through better health. In partnership with our generous donors, Covenant’s 10,000+ employees, physicians and volunteers are providing the very best care for our patients and their families.
