Our hospital is committed to providing the highest quality care and ensuring the safety of our patients, employees, providers, volunteers and visitors. We continue to monitor the evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking the necessary steps to ensure we are fully prepared to care for patients, in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in partnership with our local and state health departments.
Below are a number of resources to help educate you and your family on COVID-19.
To help support the health of our community, we are providing access to an online COVID-19 risk assessment developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This tool does NOT provide a diagnosis, and it should NOT be used as a substitute for an assessment made by a healthcare provider.

We continue to work closely with the Tennessee Department of Health and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safety of our patients, the clinical teams who have been caring for these patients and all those within our facility.
Our hospital has implemented comprehensive plans to detect, protect and respond to this health crisis. We have been preparing for COVID-19 affecting our community since early 2020, building upon the robust emergency operations plan we have in place year-round.
The safety and protection of our patients is our utmost concern. To protect our community and all who need ANY type of medical care, all of our positive or suspected Covid-19 patients are isolated on specialized units that are disconnected from the remainder of our hospital. Negative-pressure air units are in place to ensure that the airflow from these areas of the hospital remains separate from our other patient, visitor and staff areas.
Additionally, we are taking extra precautions to keep all our non-Covid-19 areas clean. Nursing, physician and all additional staff for Covid-19 patient areas are ONLY working in Covid-19 patient areas and are not traveling to other areas of the hospital. We are dedicated to providing a safe and secure hospital environment for all of our community’s needs. We are here for you in this time of need.
We want to reassure our communities that it is safe to come to the hospital should you or your family need care. We stand ready to serve you.
