Rest assured – patients who come to Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge for their care find an extraordinary team of professionals ready to help. With 180 physicians in 33 specialties, Methodist has the expertise, experience and scope of service to meet your needs.
A 301-bed regional medical center, Methodist is one of the first hospitals in East Tennessee to offer cutting-edge treatments and technologies that benefit people with life-threatening aneurysms; severely damaged knee, hip and shoulder joints; sudden heart failure; and non-healing wounds.
In addition to offering a wide array of services, Methodist prides itself on a culture of patient safety and quality care, and has been the recipient of several national award rankings. Methodist was recently awarded an “A” grade in the Fall 2015 Hospital Safety Score rankings released by The Leapfrog Group. Methodist is only one of four hospitals in Tennessee to maintain a “Straight A” ranking since the Scores’ inception in June 2012.
Additionally, Methodist is one of only 1,043 hospitals out of more than 3,300 eligible hospitals in the United States to receive The Joint Commission‘s 2014 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®. The hospital also received a 2015 Performance Achievement Award from the American College of Cardiology’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry ACTION Registry – GWTG.
