Franklin Woods Community Hospital is an 80-bed not-for-profit hospital providing health care for Johnson City and the surrounding Northeast Tennessee area. It was recently named one of Soliant Health’s 2016 Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals. Franklin Woods Community Hospital has achieved the Pathway to Excellence designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), which identifies the hospital as one of the best places to work for nurses, and one that creates an enriching, supportive culture where nurses like Jennifer Harrah excel.

Nestled in a wooded landscape with large expanses of green space, Franklin Woods Community Hospital opened in July 2010. The 240,000 square foot facility replaced the aging North Side and Johnson City Specialty hospitals, both of which closed in July 2010. Exterior and interior walls of native stone, healing gardens and streaming natural light from large windows distinguish Franklin Woods from other health care facilities.

The same year it opened, the $122 million facility received designation from the U.S. Green Building Council as a Silver level LEED-certified hospital — Tennessee’s first — for implementing green design and building strategies to reduce energy, water and resources while increasing the health and well-being of those who use the facility.

Franklin Woods Community Hospital has become the first hospital in Tennessee to earn Perinatal Care Certification from The Joint Commission. The certification program recognizes Joint Commission-accredited hospitals committed to achieving integrated, coordinated and patient-centered care for mothers and their newborns. Learn more here.

It is truly a community hospital by the best definition in that we strive every day to meet the needs of the communities that we serve in the surrounding region. I am honored to be a part of this organization where each day our outstanding staff delivers the highest-quality, highest-value care to our patients while involving and engaging their families along this continuum.

I’m often asked what sets Franklin Woods Community Hospital apart. The answer is complex but put simply, it’s our people – and their approach to patient care – that distinguishes our community hospital. Safety is a visible priority at our facility. We expect our entire team from our providers, to our clinical team members and our support team to work collaboratively to define that positive, harm-free patient and family experience. While we are blessed to have a beautiful state-of-the art facility to provide care within, we feel that our people make the difference.

Our Community

Johnson City

Bustling with a population of more than 60,000, Johnson City lies just west of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Northeast Tennessee. The rugged beauty of the Appalachians surrounds the thriving city that encompasses all of Washington County and parts of Carter and Sullivan counties.

It is known for its rich history (Daniel Boone, Al Capone and railroads), cultural heritage (bluegrass music, quilts and storytelling), outdoor adventure area (hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing) and beautiful lakes and mountain vistas.  Yet, the eighth largest city in Tennessee also boasts diverse economic and educational opportunities and has become a regional hub for health care, including medical and pharmacy schools associated with East Tennessee State University. The city is also home to a beautiful and historic Veterans Administration campus and hospital.

Food, crafts, music and other entertainment abound at the area’s many annual events such as the Blue Plum Festival (June), Pepsi Independence Day Celebration (July 4), Umoja Festival (August), the Taste of Johnson City (September), the Storytelling Festival (October). Local bands bring the nights alive at popular downtown locations. Exciting day trips to Asheville, Knoxville, Gatlinburg and the ski areas of North Carolina are about an hour away.

All this, an excellent economy and one of the lowest costs of living in the U.S. led Forbes magazine to list Johnson City as one of the “Best Small Cities for Business and Careers.” Kiplinger’s named it one of the “10 Least Expensive Cities for Living in the U.S.A.” Residents and visitors alike are drawn to the big city opportunities and small town atmosphere of Johnson City, a one-of-a-kind town.
