Smoky Mountain Urgent Care had a mission: to provide Sevier County’s residents and visitors with comprehensive laboratory testing, digital x-rays, and extended hours every day of the week. Through community involvement, Smoky Mountain’s services eventually grew to include occupational health and workers’ compensation cases. When patients began traveling to the clinic from further and further away, Dr. Rothwell and Dr. Huskey knew they needed to expand to other communities. (The physician partners maintained sole ownership and it is a privately held company to this day.)
As the company reaches out to new neighborhoods and regions, we are evolving into Well-Key Health, a comprehensive network that offers the same exceptional experience created at Smoky Mountain Urgent Care.
Maryville, Tennessee is an award-winning community located near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The population of Maryville is more than 27,000, and the town encompasses approximately 16 square miles. Maryville is on the cutting edge in many areas of city government, developing and implementing programs to provide a modern, safe, and beautiful place to live and visit.
In Maryville, we take great pride in living in a community that is invested in public education and supports our schools. Maryville City Schools are nationally recognized for its programs, attendance, student achievements, and test scores, which typically exceed national and state-wide norms. The schools also emphasize extra-curricular activities and rate highly in competitions and sports. Performing arts, including one of the largest orchestral music programs in the region, are a priority for our district and a great source of pride and enjoyment for our stakeholders.
Like many downtowns throughout the nation, development of contemporary malls and the proliferation of shopping centers lured businesses and customers away from the downtown area. However, unlike many other downtowns throughout the country that have been lost, dozens of historic structures in downtown Maryville remain and have enjoyed continuous use, or have been rehabilitated more recently.
Currently, Maryville's downtown offers the community and visitors entertainment, office, restaurant, retail, recreation, government, education and religious institutions, medical, and housing opportunities. In addition, the Blount County Library and scheduled community programs further improve the downtown's position in attracting individuals and families throughout the weekdays and weekends. The City and participating community businesses also sponsor numerous events downtown that add to the use and enjoyment of the downtown area.
The Maryville community is home to several beautiful parks that offer safe and fun areas for your family to play, picnic or enjoy the scenery. Maryville Alcoa Greenway, Bicentennial, Amerine, Eagleton, Everett, John Sevier, Pearson Springs, and Sandy Springs parks are among the many your family will appreciate. Maryville lies in the Foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The peaceful, gorgeous Smoky Mountains is a perfect place for a family vacation. Just beyond the village of Townsend, to the east of Maryville, is Cades Cove - a broad, verdant valley surrounded by mountains. This beautiful valley is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smokies. The Townsend area offers many wonderful vacation sites and can serve as a hub for visitors exploring our region.
