Johnson City Medical Center
The second hospital established in Johnson City, Tennessee, the Johnson City Medical Center is known primarily as a major medical referral center. Committed to providing top-tier healthcare, it offers advanced surgical, specialty, and subspecialty services. It houses the Ballad Health Cancer Care, one of the leading cancer centers in the country, and also has a specialized heart center that has been named one of America’s best heart hospital.
The medical center opens its doors to patients from outside of the city, and even the state, which is why it is convenient that there are a few low-priced yet comfortable hotels close to the hospital that they can choose to stay in. Standing across from it is the Hampton Inn Johnson City, offering free parking, on-the-house breakfast, and 24-hour assistance. Just a short distance away is the Carnegie Hotel & Spa, a good choice for those looking to rejuvenate, with amenities such as a salon and spa, outdoor swimming pool, and sauna. It is also known for its historic setting and close proximity to restaurants and some of the city’s famous attractions. These include the Johnson City Mall, the premier shopping destination in the region with over 60 national and local retail stores and restaurants. A 20-minute ride from Johnson will bring tourists to the city of Bristol, where they can visit the Paramount Center of the Arts, a multi-use, non-profit performing arts center that preserves the history and culture that link Bristol and its twin city, Virginia. It presents musical events, theatre shows, films, and family entertainment.
