NEWPORT-Visitors entering the front lobby of Newport Medical Center now pass by one of six stained glass windows removed by the venerable Graves-Wyatt Chapel of Baptist Hospital of East Tennessee.

Upon the Knoxville institution's demolition, the six windows were designated for re-installation at other hospitals now part of Tennova Healthcare.

On Thursday, hospital officials and guests held a Service of Dedication in Newport Medical Center's garden for the window.

Under the direction of hospital Chaplains Linda Mulford and Dan Hix, the service began with a short history of the windows.

Dating back sixty years, the windows were installed in the Knoxville hospital's chape through the generosity of individuals, families, and the East Tennessee Baptist Hospital Auxiliary. The windows were originally installed and dedicated

The window at Newport Medical Center was originally placed by M. Mahan Siler in "grateful recognition" of his wife.
