East Tennessee Lions Eye Bank operates out of two facilities in the East Tennessee region. Our flagship facility is located within the University of Tennessee Medical Center. The University of Tennessee has provided ETLEB with excellent facilities since the 1980’s. We enjoy our relationship with the medical center staff as well as the Regional Forensic Center which is also located in UTMC.

Recently, ETLEB has found a great need for an eye bank in the far eastern Tennessee region known as the Tri-Cities region. This facility allows ETLEB to perform several beneficial functions for the Tri-Cities community including servicing the hospitals in that region with faster tissue recovery times and community education and outreach.
