Franklin Woods Community Hospital
Franklin Woods Community Hospital is an 80-bed not-for-profit hospital providing healthcare for Johnson City and the surrounding Northeast Tennessee area.
It was recently named one of Soliant Health’s 2016 Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals. Franklin Woods Community Hospital has achieved the Pathway to Excellence designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), which identifies the hospital as one of the best places to work for nurses, and one that creates an enriching, supportive culture for our nurses to excel.
Nestled in a wooded landscape with large expanses of green space, Franklin Woods Community Hospital opened in July 2010. The 240,000 square foot facility replaced the aging North Side and Johnson City Specialty hospitals, both of which closed in July 2010. Exterior and interior walls of native stone, healing gardens and streaming natural light from large windows distinguish Franklin Woods from other health care facilities.
The same year it opened, the $122 million facility received designation from the U.S. Green Building Council as a Silver level LEED-certified hospital – Tennessee’s first–for implementing green design and building strategies to reduce energy, water and resources while increasing the health and well-being of those who use the facility.
Franklin Woods Community Hospital was the first hospital in Tennessee to earn Perinatal Care Certification from The Joint Commission. The certification program recognizes Joint Commission-accredited hospitals committed to achieving integrated, coordinated and patient-centered care for mothers and their newborns.
