About Claiborne Medical Center

Welcome to Claiborne Medical Center! Our hospital opened in 1959, and has served Claiborne and the surrounding counties for many years. We became part of the Covenant Health system in 2014, and are proud to offer an array of medical specialities, updated technology and excellent customer service. Our medical staff consists of 98 physicians who specialize in 13 specialty areas, and a dedicated team of employees committed to providing top-notch care to our community.

In addition to the hospital, Claiborne Health and Rehabilitation Center offers short-term rehabilitation and strength conditioning after surgeries or hospital stays, as well as long-term care living accommodations for loved ones who can no longer live without assistance.

We are unique in the Covenant Health system because we are the only medical center with its own ambulance service. Claiborne EMS (Emergency Medical Service) has been a vital part of our community for many years; whether it is providing emergency care due to an accident or serious illness or transporting patients for routine medical care, our Advanced Life Support-rated EMS staff  are dedicated to providing quality care to every patient, every time.

You don’t have to travel to Knoxville for outstanding diagnostic services, as Claiborne Medical Center provides laboratory services, respiratory care, and imaging services such as MRI, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine and CT. The Claiborne Breast Center features digital mammography services, and our Heart Center provides stress testing and other non-interventional cardiology services including cardiac rehabilitation.

We are so pleased to serve the citizens of the Tri-state area, and look forward to serving your family’s healthcare needs.

Sincerely,

Patricia Ketterman
