Baptist Memorial Hospital-Tipton

Our Covington Hospital Serves Tipton County

Built in 1964 by Tipton County, the hospital joined Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation in 1981, making it the first hospital in the Baptist system outside Memphis. Today, an experienced medical staff provides high-quality health care to the community in this 100-bed facility.

Staff physicians practice internal medicine, emergency medicine, oncology, pediatrics, pathology, neurology, obstetrics/gynecology, radiology and urology. Many Covington, TN hospital physicians are located in the two medical office buildings adjacent to the hospital, providing added convenience for both patients and physicians.
