Roane Medical Center Honored, Voted Best Medical Facility
Roane Medical Center is honored to be named best medical facility
by many local residents of Roane County and surrounding areas.
“We are thrilled to be viewed so highly by the patients and communities we serve,” said Gaye Jolly, president and chief administrative officer of Roane Medical Center. “It is our mission to serve the community by improving the quality of life through better health.”
Roane Medical Center, located in Harriman, Tenn., was founded in 1939. As a member of Covenant Health
, Roane Medical Center offers personalized patient care through its quality medical and surgical care, emergency services, prevention programs, rehabilitation support and health education.
“We continue to grow our services, attract new physicians, add advanced technology, and share best practices within our health system, Knoxville-based Covenant Health. The results are advances in treatment times, quality outcomes and patient satisfaction,” said Jolly.
With more than 300 employees, the hospital is equipped with medical staff who has extensive expertise in specialized services that include diagnostic imaging, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, and many others. Roane Medical Center also offers services through its subsidiaries, RMC Patricia Neal Outpatient Center
and Roane Medical Women’s Center
Roane Medical Center currently is located at 412 Devonia Street, but is constructing a new replacement hospital in Midtown. The new building will be built on Roane State Highway near Pinnacle Point, a commercial shopping center located just off the Harriman/Midtown exit of Interstate 40.
The new campus will include a state-of-the-art hospital, an adjacent new medical office building, larger and more accessible parking areas and new patient and family amenities. A key feature of the hospital includes the construction of all private rooms. The planned hospital design will enhance staff-patient interactions within each unit. It also will provide enlarged and modern nursing units, technologically-advanced surgery suites and progressive medical imaging and cardiac care services.
