Holston Valley Medical Center is a 505-bed community hospital located adjacent to ETSU Family Physicians of Kingsport. The hospital has a newly renovated ER with more than 76,000 visits a year, patient admissions exceeding 18,000 per year, and over 1,000 births per year. Project Platinum, a $113 million renovation of the facility, was completed in 2010. The remodel revealed the latest health care design and innovations:
- New intensive care unit
- New operating suites
- Expanded emergency and radiology departments
- Additional parking areas
- New grand entrance drive
- Bridge to provide improved hospital access
Holston Valley Medical Center is affiliated with Wellmont Health System, a not-for-profit healthcare provider existing within a 15-county service area that includes Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia
The facility attracts physicians from every region of the nation by offering opportunities that are the equivalent to those of a university setting. In essence, the quality of medicine is "big city" but the quality of life is that of a smaller community without the headaches found in large metropolitan areas.
Holston Valley Medical Center is one of Tennessee's six designated Level I Trauma Centers. The Women and Children's Division has 23 private birthing rooms, plus the obstetrical surgical suites provide patients and physicians with the very best facilities and technology for bringing new babies into the world. A 15-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit with the most state-of-the-art equipment available is located just one floor below the OB/GYN unit.
There are 450 attending physicians on staff, more than 90 percent of whom are board certified in their respective fields. The staff represents virtually every subspecialty. An active Department of Family Medicine exists for family physicians. Holston Valley Medical Center has been recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals in the U.S. twice in recent years and is currently a top 50 cardiovascular hospital. It has been a national affiliate of the Planetree Organization, an innovative and patient-centered approach to medicine. Our practice plays a key role in its implementation in our hospital.
