Cookeville Regional Medical Center

Overview

Serving the area since 1950, Cookeville Regional has grown to be the region’s health care provider of choice and is the flagship hospital for the Cookeville Regional Health System that also includes Cumberland River Hospital and Cookeville Regional Medical Group.

Cookeville Regional Medical Center is a progressive 247-bed regional referral center serving more than 350,000 residents in the Upper Cumberland region of middle Tennessee. With over 200 physicians in 40 different medical and surgical specialties, Cookeville Regional offers patients here the same kind of care that they could expect in a larger metropolitan area including specialty care such as cardiology, electrophysiology, cardiac and thoracic surgery, vascular surgery, pulmonology, cancer treatment, orthopedics, physical rehabilitation and neurosurgery. The medical center’s Rehabilitation Center is located within a block of the hospital and includes both outpatient services and a 20-bed inpatient unit. Cookeville Regional also houses a 32-bed behavioral health hospital owned and operated by Ten Broeck Tennessee.

In 2009 Cookeville Regional opened the new 228,000 square-foot, six-floor north patient tower that included a new 33,000 square-foot cancer center (including tomotherapy), a 30-bed Intensive Care Unit, a cardiac care/step down unit, a post-surgical unit, a medical/oncology unit, family respite areas and an atrium lobby. With the construction of the North Patient Tower, the medical center now offers all private patient rooms throughout the facility. Within in the last several years, the medical center has completed expansions of its emergency department to include 37 beds and its surgery department to include 16 state-of-the-art OR suites. Recent construction has included a new hospital pharmacy department as well as a new central sterile department. Cookeville Regional has added advanced wound care services to its list of services with the opening of the Advanced Wound Care Center, offering advanced wound care specialists providing state-of-the-art wound treatment therapies including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Recently the medical center opened a new urgent care clinic within one block of campus and has begun construction on two new cardiovascular operating suites. The Cancer Center has expanded to include a third linear accelerator to meet the rising demands for cancer care in the region.
