Tennova Healthcare — a network of seven hospitals in East Tennessee — today announces its expansion westward with the addition of four more hospitals, according to a news release.
Regional Hospital of Jackson, Dyersburg Regional Medical Center, Volunteer Community Hospital (Martin) and McNairy Regional Hospital (Selmer) are now part of a system formed four years ago to enhance access and improve coordination of care for patients at all member hospitals, the release said.
Tennova is now one of the largest healthcare systems in the Volunteer State, with 11 hospitals and more than 80 physician clinics. The network includes approximately 1,800 licensed beds, 1,700 physicians on the combined active medical staffs, and 6,800 employees, with more than 51,000 admissions and 300,000 emergency department visits each year.
