About Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center

A Message from the Chief Administrator

Keith Altshuler, President and CAO of Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center
Keith Altshuler, CAO/President of Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center

Welcome to Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. Located near beautiful downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, we are the flagship hospital of Covenant Health.

Fort Sanders is a regional referral center, where other hospitals send their most difficult cases. This designation allows us the opportunity to bring the newest technologies and services to patients from all over East Tennessee and surrounding states. Our goal is excellence and we strive for nothing less.

For example, our Neuro/Spine Center of Excellence features a Joint Commission certified Stroke Center, CARF accredited inpatient rehabilitation, and a host of diagnostic and treatment options for patients who have had or are having a stroke.

With more than 350 active physicians and a staff of 2100 health care professionals all determined to make your visit as comfortable as possible, I know that you’ll quickly find that being at Fort Sanders is like being with your family.

And that’s what we call Regional Excellence.

Sincerely,
Keith N. Altshuler
