Centers of Excellence

The Centers of Excellence (COE) specialty clinic requires a referral from the patient's primary care physician (PCP). Patients are seen by an infectious diseases specialist who can provide care specific to HIV infection.

Currently, the COE Clinic operates by appointment.

The COE Clinic serves adult (18 years and older) residents in Knox County and the East Tennessee Region (16 counties that surround Knox County) who are on TennCare, Knox County Indigent Care Program or are Ryan White eligible. Those with private insurance and Medicare may qualify through the Ryan White income guidelines.

Additionally, a registered dietician provides nutritional counseling if needed. Pharmaceutical counseling is also provided, if needed.

Finally, medical care managers are available within the clinic to link patients to other services.
