St Mary's and Baptist Hospital Merged to for form Mercy.  I still think that is an odd name for a hospital.  Later Mercy was acquired by Tennova and Tennova started closing Baptist Hospital and limiting services at St Mary's.  Also during this time two smaller facilities were built one off Emory Rd and one in Turkey Creek.

Tennova acquired a piece of property on Middlebrook Pike and announced it's intention of building a new hospital on the site.  Article about the announced move and the uncertain future of St Mary's.  Link

Community Heath Systems planned buyout of HMA (parent company of Tennova)  Link

Recent article with photo of the new site plan: Link


It is unclear what the plan is for the North Knox Medical Center.

How will closing St Mary's impact the availability of health care services (especially emergency services)?

What is the occupancy rate of current hospitals in the West Knox area?  Is another hospital needed?
