Covenant Health to transfer land for Roane State’s Regional Health Science Center
Knoxville – Leadership from Roane State Community College, the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) Knoxville and Covenant Health will meet on Friday, January 27, 2023, to celebrate a land donation that will help bring a state-of-the-art healthcare training facility to East Tennessee.
Announced in early 2022, the Knox Regional Health Science and Simulation Center will be built on land donated by Covenant Health, the region’s most comprehensive healthcare enterprise. Construction on the project is expected to begin later this year.
Members of the media are invited to attend the land donation recognition event, which will be held in the Dogwood Conference Room at Parkwest Medical Center in Knoxville beginning at 10 a.m. EDT.
Representatives from Covenant Health, Roane State and TCAT Knoxville will be in attendance and can speak with media following brief remarks. Conceptual renderings of the new facility will also be on display.
The approximately 10-acre land parcel to be donated is located on Sherill Boulevard, across the street from Parkwest Medical Center, and will be marked for easy identification on the day of the event.
Questions about the project or the January 27th event can be directed to Sarah Self, Roane State’s director of marketing and public relations, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
