History:

As early as 1910 and with a shortage of hospital beds, a group of Knoxville physicians held a vision of a Catholic hospital in their community. The Knox County Medical Association petitioned the Bishop of the Nashville diocese to construct a hospital in Knoxville. At the time, there was not enough money to take on the project. The vision idled for years... until the gift of a devout Catholic rekindled it.
