TRI-CITIES, TN (WJHL) – A generous donation by a well-known local businessman will help improve health in the Tri-Cities.

Wellmont Health System cut the ribbon Tuesday morning on the Bill Gatton Center for Advanced Cardiac Rehab in the Kingsport.

The center will focus on lifestyle and education by blending exercise and nutritional knowledge to help not only heart patients, but their families as well.

Local car dealer and philanthropist Bill Gatton presented Wellmont with a $1 million check to help fund the program.

Several other cardiac rehab centers are set to open around the region at Wellmont facilities at later dates.
