How can I find out the condition of a patient in a Wellmont Health System hospital?

When a patient is considered a “news patient,” the patient’s general condition (one-word description) may be made available to the media. Information regarding the patient condition will only be released when the reporter supplies the patient’s full name. Mass casualty cases may be an exception.

If the patient is a minor (under the age of 18), no information will be released without the consent of a parent or legal guardian.

To find out the condition of a patient in a Wellmont Health System hospital during business hours, please call the marketing communications department at 423-408-7299 or 423-306-1702.

After hours, please call the nursing supervisor at the appropriate hospital and ask to speak with the marketing communications professional on call:
