The Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee in partnership with Williamson Medical Center, will celebrate the grand opening of their new facility with a ribbon cutting and reception for the community Monday, May 20 at 4:00 p.m., with the ribbon cutting taking place at 4:30 p.m. The Institute will open to patients April 29 and is located on the corner of Highway 96 and Interstate 65 in Franklin, on the campus of Williamson Medical Center.
“The new Bone and Joint Institute is a destination for comprehensive orthopaedic excellence designed to serve the entire region,” said Darren Harris, CEO of the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee. “Our plan was to bring some of the nation’s best orthopaedists and state-of-the-art technology to our patients, who come to us from all over Middle Tennessee and even out of state. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
The Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee’s 121,252 square foot facility was designed as a destination for orthopaedic excellence. The new facility will include physician offices, physical and occupational therapy, outpatient imaging services and an outpatient surgery center all under one roof to better serve patients. The outpatient surgery center will be able to accommodate a 23-hour observational stay for patients. The Institute will continue to offer an after-hours injury clinic for unexpected orthopaedic emergencies. “There is truly no other orthopaedic facility like this in Middle Tennessee, and we’re thrilled to offer these services to patients,” said Don Webb, CEO of Williamson Medical Center.
The Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee’s surgeons will relocate their practices to the new facility between April 29 and May 6.

ABOUT THE BONE AND JOINT INSTITUTE OF TENNESSEE
The Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee was formally established in 2018, but its legacy goes back to 1979 with the founding of Franklin Bone & Joint Clinic. In 2009 the successful practice was acquired by a larger healthcare organization and continued to thrive under the leadership of long-time Bone and Joint surgeons. In 2017 Williamson Medical Center announced plans for the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee, a partnership between the Franklin hospital and more than a dozen orthopaedic specialists. The Institute opens in April 2019, offering a destination for orthopaedic excellence staffed by nationally recognized surgeons with expertise in fracture care, joint replacement, sports injuries and spinal care. A second location opened at Tollgate Village Medical Plaza in Thompson’s Station in 2018. For more information or to schedule an appointment at either location, call (615) 791-2630.
