Cherokee Health Systems- Center City

Knoxville, Tennessee

A new Cherokee Health Systems facility located in historic Mechanicsville Commons opened its doors in the summer 2006 and immediately created a recognizable, regional image. We worked closely with this innovative, not-for-profit, healthcare provider to create a place that reflected the organization's mission for healing.

"We so appreciate the time, effort and patience you put into understanding and incorporating our mission into this building. You created a beautiful place for healing. I don’t think I had ever considered the positive change a structure can make in the world, other than what the eye can see. But that was before we met you."— Sandra Greear, Cherokee Health Systems
