TriStar Centennial Medical Center completes Garden Court Lobby Renovation, the latest project in a five-year, $250 million investment plan

The 741-bed hospital has significantly invested in enhancing patient experience and expanding high-acuity services through more than a dozen projects covering most areas of the 43-acre campus.

Nashville, TN – TriStar Centennial Medical Center, an affiliate of HCA Healthcare, has invested more than $250 million in its campus over the last five years to expand access to high-acuity services for the Middle Tennessee region and beyond with an intense focus on quality outcomes and an enhanced patient experience. Most recently the hospital completed the renovation of its Garden Court Lobby that provides a welcoming experience for patients and their families. The project was the latest in a series of investments that has enhanced many areas of the hospital’s 43-acre campus, including pediatrics, women’s services, cancer care, surgical services and more.

In addition to adding four patient floors, TriStar Centennial has continued to invest in the latest technology while increasing capabilities across the hospital to provide some of the highest levels of care in our region. This was evident during the COVID-19 pandemic when the hospital’s Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Program provided life-saving care to hundreds of patients from multiple states.

“The healthcare needs in our region continue to increase each year,” said Scott Cihak, CEO of TriStar Centennial Medical Center. “These investments provide the infrastructure, technology and resources so our physicians and colleagues have the tools they need to focus on ensuring our patients receive the highest quality care with the latest treatments available.”

As part of their commitment to quality care, TriStar Centennial has been recognized with numerous quality awards from Healthgrades, Merative and Leap Frog that are a testament to the hospital’s safety standards and quality outcomes. As part of HCA Healthcare, TriStar Centennial is making strides in research and clinical trials, including a robust Enhanced Surgical Recovery (ESR) program that optimizes patient outcomes and reduces length of stay and SPOT technology that allows caregivers to detect and treat sepsis faster. TriStar Centennial is also part of the CRISPR clinical trial through Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute. The hospital was the first to use the powerful gene-editing technique to treat a patient with sickle cell disease. 

“Our physicians and colleagues bring incredible expertise and experience as they care for our patients each day, and they are part of some incredible initiatives that are changing the way patient care is delivered,” said Scott Cihak, CEO of TriStar Centennial Medical Center. “As we continue innovating and investing in the future of healthcare, our focus will always remain on the patients who choose us for their care.”
