Hawkins County Memorial Hospital has been ranked by CareChex among the top 10 percent of hospitals in the nation in patient satisfaction.

Hawkins County Memorial’s commitment to the community has resulted in multiple enhancements to the hospital. These include a new nuclear medicine camera and a new computed tomography scanner that has reduced the amount of radiation to which patients are exposed. The hospital also began offering HeartSHAPE® calcium scoring tests that can help patients learn whether they have heart disease.

The hospital also made other facility improvements, such as a renovated emergency department, a covered front entrance and the opening of a chapel.
