I think with Holston Valley and Bristol Regional, one might retain level II trauma status but they will primarily serve in a community hospital function providing general care. Indian Path will probably become some sort of residential addiction treatment facility.

I think this merger will do two things: work towards the goal of the Tri-Cities region acting as a singular cohesive unit, and cement Johnson City's role as the focus city for the Tri-Cities and the leader in moving the region forward.
