“We are thankful for our many contributors who make a difference in our hospital and community.”

As the only hospital in the greater Hamblen County area, Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System provides care to residents throughout the eight-county service area and offers a heart, lung, vascular center, comprehensive cancer care, women’s services, general surgery, orthopedics, emergency treatment and critical care.

For more than 120 years, the hospital has embodied a culture of patient-centered care.

This remains true today, as each employee commits to upholding Covenant Health’s Pledge of Excellence to put the patient first, strive for excellence and making Morristown-Hamblen the first and best choice for healthcare needs in the community.
