Residents here don't have to venture far from home to get the vital services they need to stay healthy in Middle Tennessee.
Residents have ready access to cutting-edge health care in Williamson County, along with wellness offerings that often can only be found in large metropolitan areas. Here, you rarely have to travel far to get an annual physical, find a specialist, or schedule diagnostic or imaging services.
Williamson Medical Center has been at the heart of comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services for more than 60 years with a reputation of providing compassionate care with a personal touch.
While the 203-bed acute care facility provides 24-hour emergency services and has more than 825 providers representing more than 70 medical specialties and subspecialities, the medical center’s mission is not about numbers or treating patients, but about people — each with their own individual path to wellness.
Williamson Medical Center’s commitment to excellence resulted in a five-star rating for 2021 from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Only three hospitals in Tennessee and 455 nationwide attained a five-star rating. These five areas determine the ratings – safety of care, readmission, mortality, patient experience, and timely and effective care.
“Williamson Medical Center has long been committed to the highest quality and safety standards” says Phil Mazzuca, Williamson Medical Center CEO. “We understand health care decisions should not be taken lightly, and the CMS ranking system helps arm patients with tools and information to aid in their decision-making process.”
With an eye on how to best serve the citizens of Williamson County, the medical center continues to build on its foundation of convenient, quality care close to home, recently opening an adult primary care clinic in Spring Hill, TN.
State-of-the-Art Health Care in Williamson County
Helping citizens stay well and healthy is another reason the medical center is a good neighbor that proactively partners with businesses and organizations to provide speakers and wellness programs.
The staff interacts with the public at local activities like the Main Street Festival and Williamson County Fair. The medical center’s emergency services team provides support at many events.
Conveniently located on the Williamson Medical Center campus is the $40 million, 121,000-square-foot freestanding medical office of the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee. Highly skilled physicians provide state-of-the art orthopedic, arthroscopic and spinal surgery as well as sports medicine treatment with physical therapy and imaging services in one building.
To meet the growing orthopedic needs of the community, the institute opened an after-hours injury clinic and additional locations in Thompson’s Station and Nolensville, providing orthopedic urgent care and physical therapy.
Best Maternity Hospitals
The Vanderbilt Franklin Women’s Center sits in the Carothers Parkway health care corridor and provides comprehensive gynecological services for all ages, from puberty to after menopause. Board-certified OB-GYNs, nurse practitioners and certified nurse midwives not only offer individualized care but they give individuals delivery options.
Patients can find a full bouquet of women’s health services, including mammography, treatment for gynecologic cancers, high-risk pregnancy care, reproductive endocrinology and infertility help. Physicians at the clinic have a collaborative relationship with Williamson Medical Center, using the facility for surgeries and deliveries.
The Vanderbilt Franklin Women’s Center’s family-centered birthing experience, spacious private suites and room service concierge — delivering mom meals when she wants them — placed the center on Newsweek’s
2021 list of Best Maternity Hospitals.
“To be included among this elite group of hospitals is an honor that underscores both our commitment to our patients and their families as well as our commitment to safety,” Mazzuca says. “We are proud of our OB, NICU and maternity departments and the level of care they routinely provide to our patients.”
