Choosing where to live and practice is one of the most important decisions a physician ever makes. The quality of life in East Tennessee, the beauty of the area, the financial advantages of practicing here, access to all the resources needed to provide outstanding patient care, and the strengths of the Covenant Health system may help make that decision easy.
Physicians beginning or relocating their practices to Covenant Health enjoy almost universal success. One important reason is the unequalled access to patients that our system provides and the networking opportunities available within the Covenant Health system help physicians who locate here build their practices very quickly.
