KNOXVILLE – The Knoxville Hospital & Clinics Foundation is pleased to announce a $10,000 pledge accepted from McKay Insurance Agency earmarked for the Pleasantville Clinic expansion and renovation.

“We are very grateful to Todd Chambers and the McKay Insurance Agency for their generous donation to initiate the success of this campaign,” said Kevin Kincaid, CEO, Knoxville Hospital & Clinics. “Their thoughtful, community-minded approach to business and leadership is a valuable support in our efforts to meet the changing needs and demands of the Pleasantville Clinic.”

Last March it was announced that Peoples Bank would be donating the current bank facility in Pleasantville to KHC for expansion of the Pleasantville Clinic. The current clinic will be renovated and expanded to accommodate increased patient volumes, expanded clinical services, and additional space to provide care for patients in a healing, comfortable, and more private environment. Work on the Pleasantville Clinic expansion is expected to begin late spring.

Hospital and Foundation officials are hoping the donation from McKay Insurance Agency encourages other individuals and businesses in the community to consider making a contribution toward this project.

Foundation Director, Katrina Nelson may be contacted for more information on the Pleasantville Clinic expansion and renovation campaign and the fundraising efforts of the Knoxville Hospital & Clinics Foundation. She can be reached by phone at (641) 842-1418.
