Summit Medical Group- Jacksboro
40 minutes north of Knoxville, the city of Jacksboro/LaFollette is a thriving community that combines growth with small town charm. It offers such modern conveniences as a recently refurbished hospital, a new post office, new elementary school, and an extensive upgrade in city recreation. If you like the mountains, the lake, or just plain old fashioned small town charm, this is the place for you.
The city is situated in Powell Valley, where the Appalachian Ridge-and-Valley province gives way to the Cumberland Plateau region.
The local hospital, LaFollette Medical Center, was honored with the National Benchmarks Award on the 2008 Thomson Reuters list of 100 Top Hospitals®, and was one of only 23 facilities in the nation to receive the inaugural Everest Award. The Everest Award recognizes those hospitals among the 100 winners that delivered the greatest rate of improvement over a five-year period.
