About Us


Located in the heart of West Knoxville,  atop a hill among mature pine trees, dogwoods, and magnolias, you'll find Little Creek Sanitarium, one of East Tennessee's most reputable nursing facilities. 

Originally founded in 1940, by Seventh-day Adventists, Leland and Alice Straw and Roger and Genevieve Goodge, Little Creek began as a self-supporting school, dairy farm and medical institution. Their Christian beliefs and principles are still an integral part of Little Creek today. It is important to Little Creek's reputation that we provide a Christian atmosphere - by our actions and words. 


Adventists believe the key to wellness lies in a life of balance and temperance. Nature creates a wealth of good things that lead to vibrant health. A vegetarian diet, pure water, fresh air and sunlight - promote clean, healthy lives.
