Johnson City Medical Center debuts new surgery tower

Starting Monday, Johnson City Medical Center’s surgery patients will see firsthand the product of millions of dollars of capital projects dedicated at the hospital’s campus over the last five years.

Mountain States Health Alliance leaders debuted the $63 million expanded and upgraded surgery department Friday for local media outlets, government officials and business professionals before the wing officially opens for patient admissions Monday.

The tower’s 16 operating rooms aren’t an increase over JCMC’s previous capacity, but each room is 30 percent larger, which allows more space for the modern surgical equipment needed by today’s doctors.
