GREENEVILLE, TN – Takoma Adventist Hospital has been honored on its 75th
anniversary as a member of the American Hospital Association.
Carlyle Walton, Takoma Adventist Hospital’s president and chief executive officer, was presented with a plaque at the Tennessee Hospital Association’s annual meeting in Nashville in November.
Takoma was noted for its “leadership in advancing the health of its community.”
“We are honored to be recognized for 75 years of doing what we all love: providing superior healthcare right here in Greeneville so our community doesn’t have to leave home for excellent care, and joyfully serving as an extension of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.”
Takoma officially opened in 1928 as Takoma Hospital and Sanitarium with 44 beds. In 1936, the hospital changed to non-profit status and built an addition known as the Sanitarium.
By 1948, the hospital had added on again, increasing to 78 beds.
Today, Takoma is a 108-bed, not-for-profit hospital with more than 75 staff physicians and more than 400 associates, working together to provide professional and compassionate healthcare.
