Peace of mind, close to home

TriStar Centennial Medical Center is working to bring a free-standing emergency room to Bellevue, filling a critical gap in access to care.

Project overview

TriStar Centennial Medical Center is working to bring a free-standing emergency room to Bellevue, filling a critical gap in access to care. As the western area of Davidson County and adjoining areas in Cheatham and Williamson County grow, they continue to be underserved in emergency care services. The proposed ER site is located on the corner intersection of Highway 70S and Harpeth Valley Road, right off I-40, in Bellevue, Davidson County. The site is easily accessible by car and ambulance.

With the nearest ER 9.5 miles away from the heart of Bellevue and all the traffic headaches in between, it just makes sense to have an emergency-based healthcare facility serving Southwestern Davidson County.

For the first time, Bellevue and our neighbors in Fairview, Kingston Springs, and Pegram will have access to physicians and staff 24 hours a day.


Benefits of free-standing emergency rooms

TriStar’s growing network of free-standing emergency rooms provided emergency care to over 60,000 patients just in 2021, when traditional hospital emergency rooms weren’t able to provide care. These facilities provide diagnostic and treatment services, comprehensive laboratory services and state-of-the-art imaging capabilities. With the same quality of care and accreditation standards as a hospital-based ER, free-standing ERs are able to see patients faster than traditional emergency rooms. This can mean the difference between life and death for someone experiencing a medical crisis but lives too far from a traditional hospital to seek treatment.


Free-standing ER services

  • ER care 24/7
  • Adult/Pediatric emergency care
  • Emergency-trained physicians and nurses
  • Dedicated exam and trauma rooms
