Hospitals and Facilities
Clinical training at The University of Tennessee utilizes a variety of facilities in Memphis, a long-established referral center in which the medical industry provides 10% of all jobs in the metropolitan area. The majority of training takes place in the downtown Medical Center, but additional hospital facilities in east Memphis are utilized to provide an educationally diverse variety of obstetrical, surgical, and office experiences. Facilities include:
Regional One Health
877 Jefferson Avenue
Memphis, TN 38103
In addition to being the home of the Regional Trauma Center, Regional One Health (ROH), formerly The MED, also includes several other Centers of Excellence in Burn, High-Risk Obstetrics, and Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU).
ROH is the largest medical and surgical teaching site for the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and through this affiliation, more than half of Tennessee's doctors will receive some, if not all, training here.
ROH houses a Women’s Hospital (The Rout Center), Neonatal ICU, full operating room facilities, and hospital wards for gynecology patients. Activities at the Regional Medical Center are closely integrated with those of the contiguous University of Tennessee Bowld Hospital, a private hospital owned and operated by the University.
Methodist University Hospital
1265 Union Avenue
Methodist University Hospital (MUH) is a partnership of two healthcare leaders, Methodist Healthcare and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). Located in the medical center and formerly known as Methodist Central, MUH is a 617-bed facility and the principal adult private teaching hospital for UTHSC. Methodist University Hospital will provide real-world experiences of managing medical problems in an efficient and effective institution.
MUH and UTHSC bring together research, medicine and innovation. This partnership supports multidisciplinary collaboration among doctors and clinical team members, leading to more advanced medical care for patients.
Training facilities include a labor and delivery unit with 12 LDR’s, a neonatal ICU and an active gynecologic surgery service. Methodist Germantown Hospital is a satellite hospital of the Methodist System. Located in East Memphis, residents have the opportunity to perform private gynecologic surgery with numerous clinical faculty.
Baptist Women’s Hospital
Baptist Women’s Hospital, a free-standing facility completed three years ago, is totally dedicated to women’s obstetrical and gynecologic care. Residents maintain an obstetrical and gynecologic surgery service, actively working with private clinical faculty who direct their education in the operating room and labor and delivery. The Center for Urinary and Pelvic Disorders is a modern continence center (with urodynamics and cystoscopy equipment) through which residents rotate when on the urogynecology rotation.
UT Medical Group Office Practice Building
UT Medical Group is the private practice arm of the University of Tennessee. This new office facility is located in East Memphis, midway between Methodist Germantown Hospital and Baptist Women’s Hospital. It is a state-of-the-art multispecialty office facility that houses faculty practices in general ob/gyn and urogynecology.
