Erlanger is Chattanooga’s only locally-owned and
locally-operated hospital. The region’s “safety net” for the indigent,
Erlanger provides medical care to all those who need it, regardless of one’s
place of residence or ability to pay. With campuses, facilities, and
affiliated physician offices conveniently located throughout the region, you're
never far from the region's most comprehensive health system.
As the region’s only teaching hospital, Erlanger is affiliated with the
University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga, and serves as the
clinical site for training hundreds of medical professionals every year.
Our mission is to improve the health of the people we touch—and we touch
thousands of lives every year. In 2008 alone, more than a quarter of a million
people were treated by the team of healthcare professionals who are part of
Community Health Centers
