East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Radiothon

Thank you East Tennessee for raising $114,129 for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital!

2019 Radiothon

The funds from this year’s radiothon will go towards the ER renovation project. Here are some details on the project.

Children’s Hospital will begin the major renovation project on our Emergency Department. The redesigned space and expansion will:

  • Make the Emergency Department more patient-centric
  • Improve flow
  • Include separate, secure behavioral health rooms with showers
  • Add an additional 8,840 square feet of treatment space, 5 additional treatment rooms, and an additional 500 square feet of waiting room space

This $14.4 million expansion will be the largest construction project at Children’s Hospital since the opening of the South Tower in 2016. The project will take two years to complete and will be rolled out in six phases.
