The birth of a baby is an exciting time for a family. Expectant parents are often busy choosing baby names and nursery colors, stocking up on diapers and baby-proofing the house.  But it’s also important to choose a birthing center, like the Dolly Parton Birthing Unit at Leconte Medical Center. In fact, eight out of ten Sevier County parents choose to have their babies at LeConte.   

Located on the 2nd floor of our beautiful building, the Dolly Parting Birthing Unit is a modern, comfortable, family-oriented facility, providing both the personal attention and medical technology for a memorable and pleasant birthing experience.

Whether it’s your first child or a new addition to a growing family, at the LeConte Medical Center, we know the birth of a new baby is a unique and special moment.  We are privileged to be a part of your family’s decision!
