Regional One CEO Coopwood’s vision: Campus overhaul; create academic medical center with UTHSC


Dr. Reginald Coopwood has a vision for Regional One Health.

The Shelby County Commission passed a wheel tax increase on Wednesday, June 28, as a way to help fund $350 million worth of upgrades for Regional One. But Coopwood, the hospital’s president and CEO since 2010, has his sights set on an even bigger goal. He wants to build off the only adult Level 1 Trauma Center within 150 miles and transform it into an academic hospital, aligning itself with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC).
