Distinguishable yet mild seasons for an excellent year round climate.
One of the absolutely lowest crime rates in the country.
Spectacular mountain scenery and excellent lake recreation opportunities.
Easy access to major interstates and only 1 day’s drive for 80% of the US population.
One key piece to the puzzle that has been missing until now is a state of the art medical community. It is an unarguable point that as we age we need more medical care options. In Sevier County, we have worked with an aging and insufficient hospital facility meaning that folks still have needed to go to Knoxville for many healthcare services.
Long discussed and worked toward, Covenant Health Systems (the parent organization of Fort Sanders Sevier Hospital) has recently announced the construction of a brand new $90,000,000 hospital and cancer center. With a pledge of $500,000 from Dolly Parton, Sevier County’s most famous resident, the new hospital and the related medical expansion will finally be a certainty.
Dolly Parton also announced that she will perform in a benefit concert to raise funds for the construction of the new facility on May 20th at Smokies Stadium. Once again, Dolly shows that her money IS where her mouth is as she helps Sevier County take a major step forward as a retirement community and a better place for those of us who are already fortunate enough to live here.
