An East Tennessee hospital ranks among the best in the country for its clinical work. Healthgrades has named Blount Memorial a 'Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Performance.'
"It's a very credible award because a lot of data is looked at. Only five hospitals in Tennessee have been able to achieve this award. It really reflect excellence in medical care, and we're very proud of that," said Dr. Hal Naramore.
Blount Memorial also received more than 30 other Healthgrades honors; some of those went to its employees and medical staff.
