Stories of Healing, Education and Discovery
Welcome to the latest issue of Frontiers, our quarterly online magazine featuring stories of healing, education and discovery.
We were saddened by the passing last year of Dr. W. Bedford Waters, the chair of the Department of Urology and a beloved physician. He is greatly missed, and his legacy lives on through his work and the fund the medical center is creating in his name. For more information on his life and to learn how to donate, contact the Development Office at 865-305-6611 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the region’s medical center, our goal is to provide excellence, both as a health care provider and community partner. So, we were pleased when Forbes, in its first-ever ranking of America’s employers by state, named us as the No. 3 employer in Tennessee. Only Publix and Costco ranked ahead, and within this top three, we are the only employer based in Tennessee.
We are also proud to be recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the best regional hospital in East Tennessee, ranked first in the Knoxville market and tied for second in the state based on patient care and other key factors.
We hope you enjoy reading the stories in this issue of Frontiers. These stories show the benefits of having an academic medical center, right here in East Tennessee. As always we welcome your feedback at email@example.com.
