TriStar Health’s newest hospital, TriStar StoneCrest opened in 2003 in northern Rutherford County. The facility is equipped with 109 beds and offers a full array of acute care services, including emergency care, general surgery, cardiology, obstetrics, intensive care, diagnostic services and cancer care. The facility is conveniently located off Interstate 24 at Sam Ridley Parkway (exit 66) in Smyrna, Tennessee. The interstate 840 loop is less than eight miles away making the facility easily accessible to Williamson and Wilson county residents.
Patient care and satisfaction is a primary focus, which is demonstrated by an accredited chest pain center, award winning cancer program, certificate of distinction for primary stroke centers and recognition by The Joint Commission as one of the nation’s top performers on key quality measures. The emergency department treated a record number of patients in 2012, yet continues to maintain an average wait time less than half the national average. More than 300 physicians are on staff, many with offices located a short walking distance from the facility.
The opening of TriStar StoneCrest in 2003 was part of a personal commitment that HCA, Inc. founder, Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr., made years ago. Dr. Frist, Sr., said, “I see a day when the community will grow enough that it will need a 100-bed hospital. When that time comes, we will build a hospital in Smyrna.”
The hospital has continued to expand since its opening with the addition of The Sarah Cannon Cancer Center oncology program, a sleep medicine facility, a robotics surgery program, and a level IIB neonatal intensive care unit.
