Facility opens to patients on April 29

The Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee, in partnership with Williamson Medical Center, will celebrate the grand opening of its new facility with a ribbon cutting and reception for the community on Monday, May 20 at 4 p.m., with the ribbon cutting taking place at 4:30.

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 orthopedic 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 orthopedists 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 orthopedic 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 orthopedic emergencies.

“There is truly no other orthopedic 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.
