Regional One Health

Regional One Health and University of Tennessee Health Science Center work together to train students and residents.

At Regional One Health, taking care of every person who comes to us is the passion of our 3,000 employees, doctors and providers on a daily basis. That passion is part of a foundation we work with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center to create for the medical students and residents who embark on a health care career right here in the Bluff City.

“To teach is to touch a life forever,” a simple statement that has much meaning here at Regional One Health. In the new summer edition of the ONEpulse magazine, we take a deeper look at the many benefits Regional One Health has serving as a teaching hospital.

Regional One Health and University of Tennessee Health Science Center have worked together since the late 1800s to create world-class health care in Memphis and the surrounding region.

Medical students and residents from around the world come to Memphis to train at Regional One Health. Yes, the experience is vital for those future health care providers, but it’s also a great benefit for Memphis.

Advances in medical knowledge and innovations, more personnel for high-quality patient care and quality-of-life impacts are among the positive effects that come through the Regional One Health-University of Tennessee Health Science Center gateway into the Memphis community. Read here to learn how clinical teaching and learning lead to community building in Memphis.

Other stories in this edition of ONEpulse include a look at radio evangelist Sarah Hall, who chooses the Firefighters Burn Center as the beneficiary of her annual gospel concert fundraiser and how your donations have been hard at work in our NICU.

Derrick Couch and wife, Renita Couch, found loving care at Regional One Health.

And read more about the truly regional aspect of Regional One Health with the touching story of Southaven’s Renita Couch who received a scary call in February. Her husband, a Clarksdale, Mississippi, police officer, had been shot and was on his way to Regional One Health’s Elvis Presley Trauma Center.

August is a big time for the Memphis tourism industry, and that actually includes Regional One Health. Thanks in part to the generous support of Elvis fans through the years, our Elvis Presley Trauma Center is the only Level 1 Trauma Center within 150 miles that today is one of the busiest in the nation. During Elvis Week, the Regional One Health Foundation hosts an Elvis Fan Reception and Private Tour.
