Williamson Health Expands to Meet the Growing Needs of the Nolensville Community

Williamson County and communities like Nolensville continue to be among the fastest-growing in the country. Thankfully, Williamson Health also continues to grow to meet the evolving healthcare needs of the county. 

Recently, Williamson Medical Center, the flagship facility of the Williamson Health system, celebrated the completion of the first phase of its emergency room expansion and renovation. This includes an expanded waiting room, two triage rooms, 10 new exam rooms, and a private family gathering room. An outdoor healing garden courtyard and an expanded gift shop are opening soon. 

Celebrity supporters Luke Bryan and Darrell Waltrip were joined by hospital leaders for the ribbon-cutting for the expanded emergency room. Bryan’s wife, Caroline, serves as the project capital campaign co-chair with Vicki McNamara. Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group was recognized as the campaign’s first corporate partner. 

Williamson Medical Center is also unveiling its 11-bed postpartum unit and newborn nursery for new mothers and their babies in June. Both projects are part of the hospital’s $200 million expansion and renovation plan to ensure Williamson Health continues to be the high-quality, high-satisfaction healthcare provider in the region. 

“These are the first of many milestone moments to come as part of our ongoing transformational expansion and renovation project,” said Williamson Health CEO Phil Mazzuca. “Each phase of this project further strengthens our ability to continue to provide exceptional healthcare to our region in modern, innovative, and state-of-the-art facilities. This project demonstrates our commitment to our mission, vision, and values in meeting the healthcare needs of Williamson County and the surrounding region now and for years to come.”

“Williamson Medical Center has been serving our county’s healthcare needs for many years,” said Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson. “This expansion and renovation project will further enhance the services and healthcare available right here at home to Williamson and surrounding counties.”

This project is being funded through a combination of existing funds, $150 million in bond financing secured through the county, and a $30 million capital campaign led by the Williamson Health Foundation. The “More for You. Close to Home.” campaign has already raised more than $13 million and will soon include opportunities for the community to provide fundraising support. 

Williamson Medical Center is just one element of Williamson Health’s footprint in Williamson County. Others include the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee main campus, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center, Williamson Health Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center, three laboratory clinics, four outpatient imaging clinics, five Bone and Joint Institute Urgent Care Clinics and Rehabilitation Services, five Vanderbilt Health and Williamson Medical Center Walk-In Clinics, 14 primary care and specialty care physician practices and 18 rapid response EMS units.

With five locations in the community, Williamson Health has deep roots in the Nolensville community. These include a Williamson Health family medicine physician practice led by Dr. Jacqueline Gentry and Dr. John Thompson (picured at left); a Bone and Joint Institute urgent care and rehabilitation office, an outpatient lab service, a Vanderbilt Health and Williamson Medical Center Walk-In Clinic, and a newly opened, full-time EMS station.

Williamson Health also has a longstanding relationship with Williamson County Schools. A full-time Williamson Health athletic trainer works in tandem with a dedicated Bone and Joint Institute physician serving as the team doctor to ensure expert and immediate care for the Nolensville High School (NHS) athletes. Additionally, a Williamson Health EMS crew is on hand for all varsity football games at NHS. Williamson Health is also active in the community, supporting local events
and organizations.

Other elements of the project will be completed in 2024 and 2025, including:

• Renovation of the existing ER space that will ultimately increase capacity from 28 to 43 beds;

• Fully renovated and expanded Obstetrics (OB) Unit including Labor, Delivery, and Recovery rooms (LDR);

• One additional C-section room to total three operating rooms in the OB Unit;

• Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) relocated to its own secure wing with nine private bays;

• New Heart Center including one new, state-of-the-art Electrophysiology (EP) Lab and two state-of-the-art Cardiac Catheterization Labs, and a Pre- and Post-procedure holding area;

• Full renovation of the existing ER including the addition of a secure, eight-bed pod for patients requiring additional privacy and/or security for all types of emergency and/or behavioral health needs;

• West Tower expands from three to six floors and adds a six-story north wing. The north wing includes 72 Medical/Surgical private inpatient beds, a 22- bed Observation Unit, and a new 35-bed Intensive Care Unit and large ICU public waiting area to replace the two 10-bed units in the Main Tower.

•The existing Main Tower will feature larger patient rooms and new technology.
