Since opening our facility in 1994, Bristol Regional Medical Center has served the community through superior quality care, technological innovation and compassion.

High quality, nationally recognized care

Bristol Regional continues to be recognized among the nation’s best hospitals.

Superior heart care

Award-winning heart attack response times

The cardiovascular team at Bristol Regional provides award-winning heart attack response times. In a heart attack, getting a patient into treatment quickly is critical.

To accomplish our fast treatment times, we’ve developed the Level One Heart Attack Network (which is unique in our region) and offer 24/7 cardiac cath labs and cardiac surgery support, as well as dedicated stroke care services.

Recognition for heart treatment, outcomes and patient safety

Bristol Regional’s cardiovascular services have earned some of the nation’s highest praise for patient outcomes, patient safety and rapid and effective treatment. Those accolades include:

  • High-Performing Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report, ranking Number 7 in Tennessee and earning "High Performing" ratings for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, heart failure and knee replacement
  • The Joint Commission Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement
  • The Joint Commission Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Center
  • Get with the Guidelines-Stroke Silver Honor Roll Achievement by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for applying the most up-to-date evidence based treatment guidelines to improve patient care and outcomes in the community
  • 2019 Blue Distinction Center and Designation by BlueCross BlueShield of TN for spine program expertise and cost efficiency in specialty care
  • Mission: Lifeline ® Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award by the American Heart Association for superior heart attack treatment
  • Novalis Certified Stereotactic and Radiation Oncology Services for evidence based, high standards of quality care​

Advanced facilities

Bristol Regional offers state-of-the-art facilities such as:

  • Deborah H. Quillen Birthing Center, a newly renovated facility where families can welcome new life in comfortable, updated surroundings
  • Highly acclaimed Level II trauma center and 24/7 emergency and surgical services
  • Primary stroke center – the region’s first – offering around-the-clock neurological coverage
  • Leonard Family Comprehensive Breast Center, which provides a full spectrum of breast care – from cancer prevention and screening to detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship
  • Imaging services at two Bristol locations, the Volunteer Parkway Imaging Center and Sapling Grove Imaging Center

Robotic and minimally invasive surgical options

Advanced cancer care technologies

Bristol Regional delivers advanced oncology care by offering two robotic radiosurgery technologies in the J.D. and Lorraine Nicewonder Cancer Center:

  • TrueBeam STx with Brainlab
  • CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery System

Both CyberKnife and TrueBeam use state-of-the-art robotic technology to treat life-threatening tumors that would otherwise be inoperable.

Robot-assisted surgery

Bristol Regional’s surgical service also features the da Vinci Surgical System as part of its array of robotic treatments and tools.

The da Vinci system offers enhanced, high-definition 3D imagery and single-site incision technology to enable surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures using very small incisions. The system can be used for a number of treatments, including urology, gynecology and general surgery procedures.

Robot-assisted surgery means faster, less-invasive procedures with shorter recovery times.

Other key services

Some of the other services we offer in Bristol include:

  • Diabetes Treatment Center
  • Neuroscience
  • Hospice and palliative care, both inpatient and outpatient
  • Inpatient behavioral health
  • Occupational health
  • Every Step Joint Replacement Center, offering knee, hip and shoulder replacement
  • Rehabilitation services, including Small Steps Pediatric Rehab
  • Women’s health
  • Wound Care

McGlothlin-Street Hospitality House

The McGlothlin-Street Hospitality House is “a home away from home” for patients and families who need a place to stay while receiving care at Bristol Regional.

Affordable, temporary lodging at McGlothlin-Street is a convenient option when:

  • You or a family member are hospitalized or are having outpatient treatment
  • You live outside a 60-mile radius of Bristol
  • And you meet other eligibility requirements

The facility is close to the hospital, and each room accommodates up to four guests.

This helps remove financial and logistic barriers for patients and their caregivers, so everyone can focus more on treatment and healing.

Dedicated to providing you with superior, compassionate care

Whether you were born here, healed here or both, Bristol Regional is a part of your community. Though health care is constantly changing, one thing is certain – you can be confident in the care you receive at Bristol Regional.

Every physician, nurse, technologist and support staff member of our team is passionate about your healing and improving your quality of life, as well as the health of our community.
