Outpatient clinic facilities are maintained at the ETSU Physicians and Associates complex, in close proximity to the Quillen College of Medicine academic offices. An abundant variety of routine pediatric surgical cases are seen each month. We provide an aggressive approach to minimal access surgical treatment of pediatric surgical disease, including MIS in infants and state-of-the-art approach to correction of chest wall deformities. The Johnson City Medical Center is a Level 1 trauma center. The pediatric surgical team works hand in hand with the trauma team for management of pediatric traumatic injury problems. Outpatient burn care and some limited inpatient burn care are available.
Our Pediatric Surgery Division provides comprehensive surgical services to the children of Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and portions of North Carolina and Kentucky. The division is currently staffed by a full-time Pediatric Surgeon, Dr. Lesli Taylor. Our commitment to provide continuous and consummate surgical services to the region's little folks is highlighted by our expansion plan. Spearheading this effort is an active search to secure the services of a second full-time Pediatric Surgeon. The development of children's health services in the Northeast Tennessee region includes plans for an expanded Children's Hospital in Johnson City. A truly essential component of this strategic plan is the delivery of top-notch pediatric surgical care to our children.
