KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Construction of the brand-new birthing center at Tennova Healthcare’s North Knoxville Medical Center in Powell is nearly complete.

The 17,500-square-foot maternity unit features private patient rooms, eight birthing suites for labor, delivery and recovery as well as a fully-equipped newborn nursery and c-section operating room.

The birthing center is expected to be fully operational in early February pending a certificate of occupancy from the Tennessee Department of Health.
