The Story of Summit Medical Group

Every day, Summit Medical Group's providers, medical staff and corporate teams come to work with two main goals: to provide the highest quality, innovative care possible and to do it at an affordable cost. It was true when 35 Knoxville physicians started Summit Group back in 1995, and it's just as true today.

These 35 providers, many of whom had been internal medicine and family practice physicians for 40 years, shared a desire to improve their ability to better serve their patients. They also shared a strong belief in the strength of combined resources and creative innovation. These shared ideals, along with an unfaltering commitment to their patients, laid the foundation for what would become Summit Medical Group.

Our Patient-Centric Mission

From the beginning, Summit set out to be a different kind of physician group. One that not only sought out the latest and best technologies and highest practice standards, but that also strived to make their services affordable, so that as many patients as possible could have access to the best care in Knoxville and the surrounding area.

Since 1995, Summit Medical Group has held firm to this commitment, remaining at the forefront of healthcare technology and innovation, while providing services at a significantly lower cost than many area hospitals and healthcare organizations.
