Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City
Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City, formerly Obion County General Hospital, became part of the Baptist system in 1982. The 173-bed facility is located in the northwest corner of Tennessee, just south of the Kentucky border.
In 1995, construction was completed on a new three-story, 85,000 square foot patient tower. This construction program provided new patient rooms and tripled the size of the emergency department.
In 1995, behavioral health services expanded to include an adolescent inpatient treatment program. Presently Baptist Union City provides inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services for both adults and adolescents. The hospital also opened a complete fitness and wellness center, Health Quest.
Many changes came to the hospital in 1998. A new physicians' office building, Baptist Medical Arts Center-Union City, opened, and is located on Reelfoot Avenue across from the hospital. Baptist Rehab, located next to Health Quest, opened and provides outpatient rehab services. Baptist Union City offers radiation oncology services and is officially recognized as a Baptist Center for Cancer Care.
The outpatient services department was recently renovated and includes an in-house catheterization laboratory and a new helical CT scanner. The outpatient department offers all routine outpatient services. The obstetrics department has been completed and includes a LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum) room, C-section room, as well as private room accommodations. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) services have been moved from a mobile to a fixed, in-house unit.
Baptist Union City recognizes that the foundation for our facility is the teamwork of our employees, medical staff members, board of directors and hospital auxiliary members. We all work together to provide the very best patient service through a program called "Service First."
