The new University of Tennessee Medical Center’s Lifestar base at Rockwood Municipal Airport is now open.
“We moved up there on Tuesday (Sept. 8) afternoon. We are there now 24-7,” said Jeff Gregory, director of Lifestar.
“I think it is going to be a good location for us,” said Gregory.
He’s pleased they’re better able to serve the region.
Gregory said the base can serve counties including Roane, Cumberland, parts of Fentress, Morgan, the southern parts of Scott, Anderson, parts of Meigs and Rhea.
