COVID-19 update from CEO Ed Curtis


Summit Medical Group patients: We are grateful that the City of Knoxville and Knox County have moved quickly to curb the spread of COVID-19 with a 14-day “Safer at Home” order. As a healthcare essential service, Summit Medical Group will remain open to take care of your healthcare needs. Telehealth, a live video or phone visit with your provider, is available for some patients.

If you need medical attention during this 14-day period, please call your Summit physician’s office. You will receive instructions as to whether you should be seen by your doctor, in person or via our telehealth option, or referred to one of our COVID-19 testing sites. This information applies to all patients and physician offices throughout our 13-county service area.

We understand that these are stressful times. Please know that your Summit Medical Group doctor, along with nurses, office staff and our entire team, are here to serve you. Your health is our top priority.
