Providing improved comfort and enhanced care to Emergency Department patients
The East Tennessee Children’s Hospital offers world-class care to children from across Knoxville.
Through our work with the hospital, we have come to see it as a beacon of hope in our community and want to help it grow to serve more members of our community.
Along with Pilot Company, we donated $5 million to the hospital to renovate the Emergency Department at the main campus in downtown Knoxville. The renovation will add a dedicated behavioral health care section, sensory-sensitive rooms, dedicated trauma rooms and an expanded lobby.
More than 60,000 sick and injured children are treated in the hospital’s Emergency Department each year. These necessary renovations will not only enhance the offerings and efficiency of the hospital but will provide improved comfort and amenities to children seeking treatment and their families. We are grateful for the opportunity to support this exciting renovation.
