McGuire Wood & Bissette attorneys, Lou Bissette and John Fleming, attended the Unicoi County Memorial Hospital ground breaking with Mountain States Health Alliance. Congratulations to the community of Unicoi County, TN. Thank you to Mountain States and all the folks with the vision to make the new hospital possible.
On August 9, 2017, Mountain States Health Alliance broke ground at the new Unicoi County hospital site, in Irwin, TN. The new facility will be state of the art with new equipment and up-to-date technology. Construction is set to start in August and the new facility is set to open in 2018. The new hospital will replace the current Unicoi County Memorial Hospital, which originally opened back in 1953. The facility will have 20 total beds, inpatient acute-care services, as well as resources for increasing access to primary care. It will also include a 24-hour emergency department, standard and advanced diagnostics, a chest pain center, an area for community education and physician office space.
