The Birth Center at TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center celebrated its grand opening on Thursday, January 7th. Approximately 150 were in attendance as TriStar Hendersonville staff and physicians, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) leadership and community supporters joined in the grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting for the newly constructed birth center.

The $18.5 million project encompasses a 22,000-square-foot women’s center, complete with Sumner County’s only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a lactation boutique for inpatient and outpatient breastfeeding services. The Birth Center is just a subset of TriStar Hendersonville’s $33 million renovation and expansion project including ER, cafeteria and medical/surgical floor renovations.

The Birth Center’s state-of-the-art technology and hotel-like amenities are not the only features that will “wow” the patients; the specialized and compassionate care will continue to build a legacy in the community. Steve Corbeil, President of TriStar Health, quoted Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr., Founder of HCA, during the program to connect attendees back to TriStar Health’s care philosophy. “It’s not brick and mortar and equipment that make a hospital,” said Corbeil. “It’s the warmth, compassion and attitude of good employees that leads to quality care.”

As Nashville continues to grow, so has the need for a facility dedicated to caring for premature babies in Sumner County. The Birth Center’s private NICU suites will allow mom and dad to experience family-centered care and bond with their baby close to home.

“Miracles are born here,” said Regina Bartlett, Chief Executive Officer at TriStar Hendersonville. “TriStar Hendersonville is excited to show you the newest addition to our family; our new birth center will bring high-quality care just minutes away from the heart of your family.”

The Birth Center will officially open its doors to expecting mothers on January 12th. The NICU will begin accepting patients on January 19th.
