Our Pediatric Surgery Division provides comprehensive surgical services to the children
of Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and portions of North Carolina and Kentucky.
The division is currently staffed by a full-time Pediatric Surgeon, Dr. Lesli Taylor.
Our commitment to provide continuous and consummate surgical services to the region's
little folks is highlighted by our expansion plan. Spearheading this effort is an
active search to secure the services of a second full-time Pediatric Surgeon. The
development of children's health services in the Northeast Tennessee region includes
plans for an expanded Children's Hospital in Johnson City. A truly essential component
of this strategic plan is the delivery of top-notch pediatric surgical care to our
325 North State of Franklin Road,
3rd Floor, Johnson City, TN 37604
