Cumberland Medical Center Merges With Covenant Health

Cumberland Medical Center in Crossville, Tenn., has completed its merger with Covenant Health in Knoxville, Tenn., becoming the ninth hospital in the nonprofit health system.

Since announcing the proposed merger last June, executives from the 189-bed community hospital and Covenant have performed needs assessments across various clinical and operational areas, according to a news release. The two organizations have prioritized developing an interventional cardiology program.

“This is an important day for Covenant Health,” Anthony L. Spezia, president and CEO of the health system, said in a news release. "The outstanding physicians, caregivers, administration and support staff at Cumberland Medical Center have become part of a team of more than 10,000 healthcare professionals who share a commitment to provide the best possible patient care."
