Medical Facilities

Healthcare needs for the community are met by medical facilities staffed by more than 100 physicians in a variety of specialties, state-operated homes for individuals with developmental disabilities, several nursing homes, assisted living facilities and numerous other health-related businesses.

Ballad Health, a family of 21 hospitals regionally, operates Greeneville Community Hospital with two campuses.

Greeneville Municipal Airport is a home base for a medical-evacuation helicopter, enabling the hospital and Wings Air Rescue work to cover points within 125 miles of Greeneville. 

Health services are enhanced by Greene County’s close proximity to major medical centers in Knoxville and the Tri-Cities area. Veterans in the area have close access to the James H. Quillen Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Johnson City, which provides tertiary medical care, surgery and psychiatric services for veterans in surrounding states.

Greeneville Community Hospital is now one hospital with two campuses. The East campus is an acute inpatient facility, with a wide variety of additional services including cardiology services, diagnostic imaging, ICU, surgery and women’s services, including obstetrics and imaging.

This campus has a rich history of delivering excellent patient care, following the vision of Dr. C.B. Laughlin, who founded the hospital in 1939.

Our patients can take comfort in knowing they will still be served by the same, familiar faces. Our top priority is always to provide the best in patient care.
