UT Health Northeast
With a 111-bed hospital, more than 25 physician clinics, and a 24/7 Emergency Room set amid 600 acres of pines, UT Health Northeast is part of the renowned University of Texas System. For more than 65 years, its medical professionals have provided extraordinary care, especially in the areas of cancer, lung disease, and primary care.
Our state-of-the-art Cancer Treatment and Prevention Center is designed with patients’ comfort, convenience, and healing in mind. Patients receiving chemotherapy look out on dancing fountains and manicured gardens. That’s important -- studies show that patients with a view of nature tend to recover faster.
Over six decades ago we treated our first patient with lung disease. Today, patients from throughout the U.S. come to see our adult and pediatric lung disease specialists. They are experts in treating pneumonia, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and many other diseases.
At the Family Health Center, our physicians, residents, and adolescent and pediatric specialists offer comprehensive and coordinated care for the entire family. We also have clinics in South Tyler, Overton, and Gladewater.
UT Health oversees physician residency programs in family medicine, occupational medicine, and internal medicine. Many physicians from these programs stay in the region and help fill its chronic shortage of primary care doctors.
Since 2005, we have received $110 million in biomedical research funding; 70 percent came from the National Institutes of Health – the gold standard – and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
