In 1969, ground was broken in downtown Chattanooga for Parkridge Medical Center, one of the first hospitals built by the Hospital Corporation of America. Parkridge Medical Center's doors opened in 1971, built entirely with private investor capital and without any expense to local taxpayers. Parkridge has grown over the years to keep pace with the developing needs of residents throughout the tristate region by continuing to expand both its campus and its services. Today, Parkridge is known for state-of-the-art technology, quality care and dedication to patient satisfaction.
Based on a strong foundation of medical and surgical services, Parkridge offers a full array of cardiac, orthopedic and emergency care options. The Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute (SCCI), built in 2003, provides care focused on both the physical and emotional needs of the patient. SCCI was the first cancer center in the area to offer an oncology nurse navigator who directs each patient's care from diagnosis to recovery.
Parkridge Medical Center has been home to many medical firsts for the community it serves. Parkridge was the first to install a permanent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner within the hospital. A Parkridge patient was the region’s first recipient of an automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator. Parkridge was the first hospital in the region to offer a full-service GI Lab, mobile MRI, and linear accelerator technology for cancer treatment. Parkridge was the first to offer patients the advantages of da Vinci robotic surgery in 2002. In 2016, electrophysiologists at Parkridge Medical Center were the first in Chattanooga to use the WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure Device to reduce stroke risk in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AFib). Later that year, cardiothoracic surgeons and electrophysiologists collaborated to perform the area’s first Convergent Procedure to treat persistent AFib.
