TriStar Summit - Healthy Community
Investing in the Health of Our Community
30 years of healthcare
As TriStar Summit Medical Center approaches 30 years of providing top-quality healthcare services to Hermitage and its surrounding areas, the hospital’s commitment to growing with the communities it serves has only grown stronger. An affiliate of HCA Healthcare, TriStar Summit shares the organization’s dedication to service through investing in needed healthcare services, fiscal responsibility and community stewardship.
By the end of the 2022 calendar year, TriStar Summit will have completed or broken ground on projects totaling upwards of $92 million. The tremendous investment in its services and facilities underscores its commitment to elevating the level of healthcare available in the Hermitage, Mount Juliet and Lebanon communities. Significant investments include:
25-bed Observation Unit
Tower expansion at TriStar Summit Medical Center - $64 million
Breaking ground in December 2022, the Tower expansion will be the most ambitious expansion project the hospital has undertaken to date. The current visitor’s entrance will be completely transformed as part of the renovation, which will also overhaul the cafeteria, kitchen and dining room. The project will also completely renovate and expand the Intensive Care Unit, which will house 20 critical care beds.
25-bed Observation Unit - $20 million
The Observation Unit will open in November 2022 and will serve as an extension of the Emergency Department. Patients whose condition may potentially require hospital admission will be able to remain in the Observation Unit for 24-48 hours to assess the need for hospital admission. The unit will not only support efficient throughput in the ED but it will also help prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.
The TriStar Summit Surgery Center in Lebanon - $11.9 million
Upon its completion in early 2024, the TriStar Summit Surgery Center in Lebanon will expand access to specialty outpatient surgical services in Wilson County. The more than 15,000 square-foot facility will initially feature two operating rooms and have the capability to expand to three to meet the needs of the rapidly growing region. A procedure room will provide space for surgical options that do not require full operating room capabilities.
5th Floor renovation - $4 million
The 5th Floor renovation project was planned in stages and progressed two wings at a time. The first stage, which included new flooring throughout the unit and appointments to patient rooms, including new furniture and renovated bathrooms, completed in August. Renovations to the final two wings are currently underway. A completely new nurse’s station was also included in the project.
Graduate Medical Education (GME) expansion - $3.6 million
The GME expansion completed in July. Medical students from sister facilities TriStar Centennial and TriStar Skyline will rotate through the program, gaining critical insight into services provided by TriStar Summit. The expansion project created new classroom space, as well as a lounge and sleep space for students who are on call.
Mt. Juliet Freestanding ER expansion - $1 million
The phased expansion project to increase access to emergency medical services along the I-40 East corridor kicked off in June 2022. The project will add three exam rooms to the facility and a storage building on the campus.
