Welcome to LeConte Medical Center

For two years in a row, LeConte Medical Center has been recognized as a Top 100 Community Hospital by Becker’s Hospital Review. Proudly serving our community, we offer a full array of medical specialties and advanced technology that is often only found at facilities in larger cities. 

Quality Care, Close to Home

Our radiology department is accredited in every advanced imaging procedure. That means patients can expect the highest level of care whether coming in for stroke diagnosis and treatment or for a CT Scan. At our Dolly Parton Center for Women’s Services, women can get their annual 3D mammogram as well as follow up care, if needed, all at the same location.

As your family grows, our Dolly Parton Birthing Unit offers family-centered maternity care in beautiful rooms, complete with views of the Smoky Mountains. In fact, every area of the hospital offers private patient rooms for the comfort of our patients and their families.

Why travel elsewhere, when the high-quality care you need is available in your hometown? Come see why you and your family should Count on LeConte!
