Celebrating 25 Years

Siskin Hospital celebrated 25 years of service to the Chattanooga community with a year-long celebration that began with the 12th Annual Possibilities Luncheon in February 2015!

For decades Mose and Garrison Siskin dreamed of opening a facility to provide hope, healing and the highest level of rehabilitative care to the people of our community. Twenty-five years ago, Siskin Hospital opened its doors as the first freestanding, not-for-profit rehabilitation hospital in Tennessee, transforming that long-held dream into reality. Since then, countless lives have been changed because of the excellent care received at what has become a beacon of hope for patients and their families in the Chattanooga metropolitan area.
