A Choice Career in a Great Place to Call Home

Covenant Health is the region’s top performing healthcare network. Headquartered in Knoxville, we are a community-owned, not-for-profit healthcare system comprised of nine acute-care hospitals, one behavioral health hospital, and the area’s fastest growing physician practice division. Our specialized services include the region’s largest cancer network and the renowned Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, dedicated to helping those recover from debilitating strokes and traumatic brain injuries.

Our more than 10,000 employees, physicians, and volunteers are unified by one covenant: to put our patients first every day, to strive for excellence in everything we do, and to make Covenant Health the first and best choice in our region. This is how we care for more than one million patients and families every year, and one reason why Covenant Health is the only health system in East Tennessee to be on Becker’s 2018 list of “150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare” and named six times in a row by Forbes as a Best Employer. We invite you to learn more about Covenant Health, the region’s top performing healthcare network, and explore physician opportunities throughout the region we serve.
