first_imgAs Tennova Healthcare in East Tennessee proceeds with its strategic reorganization of services, growing capacity at North Knoxville Medical Center and Turkey Creek Medical Center and enhancing services at its affiliated hospitals in Jefferson City, LaFollette and Newport, the system has begun work to end operations of Physicians Regional Medical Center and Lakeway Regional Hospital by the end of this year.All services at Physicians Regional Medical Center and Lakeway Regional Hospital will be permanently terminated as of 11:59 p.m. on December 28, 2018, subject to satisfaction of all necessary notices and regulatory requirements.“We will work with our medical staff, patients and local EMS/first responders to ensure a smooth transition of care,” said Tony Benton, chief executive officer for Tennova Healthcare in East Tennessee. “Strengthening our network and pursuing new outpatient strategies is critical to meet the needs and preferences of today’s healthcare consumers and support the way our physician partners prefer to practice. Delivering care in facilities designed to support current medical practices will best serve our patients and the community.”Physician practices in Morristown, Tennova General Surgery – Lakeway and Tennova Primary Care – Lakeway West, will remain open. The transition aligns local services with community usage as decreasing numbers of patients have come to Lakeway Regional Hospital in recent years. Inpatient services are less needed as medical advances allow more care to be provided in outpatient settings.Across the NetworkMultiple construction projects this year have grown capacity for services at the Powell and Farragut Tennova hospitals. Construction is continuing with completion projected for next summer.North Knoxville Medical Center has renovated and reconfigured existing space to add cardiac catheterization laboratories and operating rooms to help accommodate cardiac care and orthopedic, general, vascular and other inpatient surgeries from Physicians Regional. Capacity for surgery and childbirth services is being added, with construction targeted to be complete next summer.Turkey Creek Medical Center has increased the number of general medical/surgical beds, created additional operating rooms and added intensive care unit beds to accommodate increased and more complex general and cardiovascular surgical cases. Open heart surgery and neurosurgery services have been consolidated at Turkey Creek. A new cardiovascular intensive care unit is targeted to be complete in spring 2019.Enhancements are also being made at the Tennova hospitals in Jefferson City, LaFollette and Newport to strengthen medical services and provide higher acuity care, including recruitment of more providers to practice in the communities.PersonnelMany employees and physicians have already transitioned to North Knoxville Medical Center and Turkey Creek Medical Center as the services they provide moved from Physicians Regional. Job fairs are being held to help remaining employees identify positions at the North Knoxville and Turkey Creek medical centers, other Tennova hospitals or regional providers where their skills may be a good fit.“Every individual employee and physician at the hospitals is valued for their unique role in caring for patients,” said Benton. “It is through their commitment that thousands of patients have received compassionate, quality care over the years.”Winding down Physicians Regional Medical Center and Lakeway Regional Hospital will focus Tennova’s resources on enhancement of North Knoxville Medical Center and Turkey Creek Medical Center and development of new centers for services. Tennova is continuing in its work with local physician partners to pursue opportunities to develop new outpatient care sites, including the Middlebrook Pike property. The health system will announce those developments in the future as plans are finalized. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/26/2018-6AM)Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgDarren ChambersThe following is a paid political statement by Sumner County Sheriff Office Lieutenant Jessie Cornwell:“Now that we’ve heard from the ex-employees about the Sheriff election, I would like the public to hear from a current employee.  I’ve been with the Sheriff’s Office for seven years now.  I have seen the good and the bad that comes with working in law enforcement.  America is entering a time where there is so much hate and division towards one group of people to the next.  Law enforcement is an ever-changing profession, but we are getting better every day.  It’s important to have a leader at the helm of a law enforcement agency that has both the knowledge and experience to lead it through these trying times.Sheriff Darren Chambers has both knowledge and experience.  He has been certified at both the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center and Sedgwick County Law Enforcement Center.  He has been a cop for more than 36 years, and a supervisor for over 25 years.  He has extensive experience in working Exploited and Missing Children while he was with the Wichita Police Department. He’s taught domestic violence scenarios at KLETC for many years. Think about this for a moment, Darren was selected by the Kansas Sheriff Association to mentor other newly elected sheriffs what their obligations to the public and their employees.  Not only does Darren have the knowledge, but he also imparts it on the others.  When children are abused or your family gets attacked, who do you want to investigate that?  A man with knowledge and experience to lead such investigations, or a candidate that has not even been to the Academy.      I have been in the room where critical decisions have been made by the Sheriff involving numerous matters to include the jail, employee issues, work comp, budget, criminal investigations, and many other topics.  If the decisions are wrong, they could lead to catastrophic consequences such as violating people’s rights, lawsuits, and bringing the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office in bad light to the community. These kind of decisions are made from many years of law enforcement experience.Being the Sheriff of Sumner County is not something you can learn on the job.  This is not a small time operation.  We have 66 employees, 185 inmates, and 3.6 million dollar budget.  Sheriff Chambers has already proved he is WELL CAPABLE, of handling the burdens of the job.I can say from experience that Darren holds his employees accountable.  Yes, we have disgruntle ex-employees that are supporting another campaign for obvious reasons.  There are reasons why they are ex-employees.   You can clearly see the support our Sheriff has around the immediate area to include Butler County, Cowley County, and other law enforcement agencies.  I do not echo my support alone.  Many of the employees signed a letter of support for the Sheriff.   Sheriff Chambers does not run this office as a politician.  He makes decisions that are not based on what is best for his career, but what is best for Sumner County.  We need a Sheriff that has the experience and knowledge to run this office.Vote to re-elect Darren Chambers on August 4. “  Lt. Jessie Cornwell 1122Sumner County Sheriff’s Officelast_img read more
