An Affordable Retirement and Health Care Choice

Uplands Village is a vibrant nonprofit organization managed by United Church Homes and dedicated to continuing the legacy of the remarkable “Doctor Woman of the Cumberlands,” Dr. May Cravath Wharton.

Often making house calls on horseback into the remote hills and “hollers,” this tireless woman found the resources to build a small hospital in Pleasant Hill. She went on to found what is now the 182-bed Cumberland Medical Center in Crossville, Tennessee.

Seeing the need to house and care for those who had spent their lives in service to others, she built the original Wharton Nursing Home and the first independent living homes surrounding it. Drawing on the words of a favorite poem by James Clark, she named her village “Uplands.”

While many things about Uplands Village have changed since Dr. May’s day, we continue to remain true to her dream of being an affordable retirement and healthcare choice.
