We are employed by Covenant Health and have been since the groups inception.  Covenant health is the largest provider of healthcare in East Tennessee.  They employee more than 10,000 staff and over 1,100 physicians, which makes collaborative care very easy.  We are partnered with East Tennessee Childrens Hospital which is across the street from Fort Sanders. ETCH recently opened a brand new NICU with 44 private rooms.  It is a level III NICU.  Our collaborative relationship allows us to take the best care of all of the moms/babies in the region. Knoxville, TN is an incredible southern gem.  It is a beautiful, mid-sized southern city with a big town vibe. There is also NO state income tax. We have recently been ranked a top 10 college town.  The University of Tennessees main undergraduate campus is located near-by to the hospital with world class, family-friendly sports and activities.  We have a local minor league baseball team that draws quite a crowd on game days.  We are also located 15 mins from the regional airport.  There are many beautiful lakes in the area, which most avail themselves of in the summer months.  The most visited national park, Smokey Mountain National Forest is 45 minutes away and has a myriad of tourist attractions and other family-friendly activities, including Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywoods amusement park and their waterpark.  We also have a restaurant scene that truly rivals that of bigger cities and recently have had an explosion of craft beer with more than 15 micro-breweries and distilleries open in the area.  We are in close proximity to Asheville, NC, Nashville, TN and Chattanooga, TN each approx. 2 hours away and 3 hours away from Atlanta.  The cost of living in Knoxville is also very good.  Home prices are lower than most other parts of the country.  This is a great city to both meet new people in, as well as raise a family.  Our group has an extremely low attrition rate with most of the partners having practiced here in Knoxville their entire careers, some have been with the group for 25-27 years.  This is an incredible opportunity for a new grad with tremendous personal and financial growth potential.
