Expanding Reach, Improving Access
This year, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, in partnership with TeamHealth, opened Knoxville’s first pediatric urgent care center. The West Knoxville location is open evenings and weekends, to serve families after their primary care provider’s office has closed – and the board-certified pediatricians automatically send patient charts to a child’s physician to ensure seamless care. From colds to cuts, Children’s Hospital Urgent Care is improving access to expert care in the community.
