Parkridge Health System is excited to welcome BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee's Blue Network S members.

For more than 53 years, Parkridge Health System has served the Chattanooga region, evolving from a single hospital in 1971 to a comprehensive network of five hospitals, three freestanding ERs with additional renovations in development.

Parkridge Health System is equipped with experienced care teams and the latest technology to provide top-tier healthcare in women’s services, cardiology, mental health, oncology, critical care and more to ensure Chattanoogans get the care they deserve.

This transition is also coming at a time when our healthcare system is in the midst of its largest investment project to date. We have multiple expansion projects underway, including a $72 million tower expansion at Parkridge Medical Center that will significantly enhance our capacity and critical care services. At Parkridge East Hospital, expansions to our labor and delivery and emergency services areas in 2022 were so successful with patients, we are now working on a second expansion of the same size in 2024. These expansions are in addition to a $10 million facility-wide renovation completed in 2021.

Parkridge Health System has been recognized nationally for its performance and services, including the 100 Top Hospitals by Fortune/PINC AI, Leapfrog Group’s ‘A’ patient safety score, as well as being named one of America’s Top 250 Hospitals by Healthgrades in addition to other accolades.

We recognize that many BCBST Network S members may be encountering our hospitals for the first time. Whether you're new to our health system or a longtime patient, we want to assure you of our unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional care with warmth and compassion.

At Parkridge Health System, we are rooted by our mission: Above all else, we’re committed to the care and improvement of human life.
