Hometown Radiologists Strive to Improve Care to Their Community

Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System is proud to welcome our very own hometown physicians Dr. Michael Meadows and Dr. Travis Wright to our radiology team.

Dr. Meadows, originally from Virginia, and his wife began exploring nearby cities following his retirement from the United States Navy.  That is when they stumbled upon the Morristown area.  When visiting nearby Mooresburg he shared, “The area has every feel of ‘home’ that my wife and I were looking for in our next season of life.”  To no surprise, the couple found land to build a home and began exploring ways to invest in their new community.

Dr. Wright, originally from Louisiana, admits he and his wife loved the idea of being in a community where they could make a difference. “I want my patients to know that they are being cared for by their neighbor,” shared Dr. Wright.  The former University of Tennessee swimmer was excited to return to the area and establish a home with his wife and two boys.

“Dr. Travis Wright has been providing excellent care to our patients for several years, and we welcome Dr. Meadows to our team.  Dr. Wright, Dr. Meadows, Dr. Woodward and other VISTA radiologists will serve our community well,” said Gordon Lintz, president and chief administrative officer.

Both physicians will serve as diagnostic radiologists for Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System overseeing a wide-range of patient care.  “We are excited about the opportunity to serve Morristown and the surrounding areas with physicians who live in the communities where they serve,” shared Aaron Shoopman, VISTA Radiology administrator.

When outside of the hospital, you’ll find Dr. Meadows honing his woodworking skills or enjoying time with his two grandchildren while Dr. Wright is hard at work on his family farm raising goats and caring for his honeybees.
