Honoring Health Care Pioneers & Legends

Centered in the nation’s health care capital–Nashville, Tennessee–the Tennessee Health Care Hall of Fame seeks to honor individuals who have made a lasting impact on health care and the health care industry in the United States. Founded in 2015, the Hall of Fame postponed last year’s induction ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
