IMPORTANT NOTICE:

ER visitation restrictions

Ballad Health is currently allowing 1 designated patient-support person – or visitor – for the duration of each patient’s visit or hospital stay. The patient-support person – or visitor – will only be allowed onsite from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Exceptions may be made in labor and delivery, and emergency departments where one guest is permitted at all times, and during extenuating circumstances or in the case of end-of life-care.

Screenings and face mask requirements

Each visitor will be screened for potential signs of illness and required to wear a cloth face covering, which they need to provide for themselves.

Due to the increased risk of virus transmission, masks with vents and/or valves are not permitted.

These measures are to help contain coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Please read more about these visitation restrictions.


If an injury threatens your life, an organ or a limb, you need trauma care.

Find timely treatment at Ballad Health’s Level I and Level II trauma centers in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

No matter how bad your injury is, you’ll get help from doctors and nurses experienced in treating people like you.

  • Level II trauma center – Bristol Regional Medical Center, Bristol, Tenn.

Follow-up care

After trauma care, rehabilitation helps the injured part of your body start to work again and feel better. A social worker or case manager can guide you to other services and resources that ease your recovery after you leave the hospital.

Preventing injuries
