Hancock County Hospital is a critical-access facility that opened its doors in 2005 to provide state-of-the-art medical care to adult and pediatric members of the Sneedville, Tenn. community.

Our services include:

  • Emergency care
  • Inpatient care
  • Laboratory tests
  • Diagnostic imaging – including X-rays, ultrasound and CT
  • Physical therapy

Additionally, Hancock County Hospital has an onsite rural health clinic and recently started an outpatient therapy program, Senior Life Solutions, that focuses on members of the senior population who are struggling with depression and anxiety.

Also, we make air and ground medical transportation available to a larger tertiary-care facility – should a patient require further specialization.
