Williamson Health to Host Community Event June 18

The community is invited to celebrate the opening of Williamson Health's West Tower on June 18 with family fun activities, food, a live DJ and more.

Williamson Health is inviting the community to the grand opening festivities for Williamson Medical Center’s newly expanded and renovated West Tower at a free family fun event on Tuesday, June 18, from 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Come out to the hospital’s West Tower on Williamson Health’s main campus, located at 4321 Carothers Parkway in Franklin.

The free community event will feature family fun activities, complimentary food and a live DJ as well as tours of the new Williamson Medical Center West Tower. A short program and ribbon cutting will begin at 3:45 p.m., featuring various speakers including Mazzuca, multiple Williamson Health physicians, community leaders and other special guests.

“The new West Tower represents Williamson Health’s commitment to elevate healthcare excellence for all residents of Williamson County and the surrounding region by providing world-class care for years to come,” said Phil Mazzuca, Williamson Health CEO, reflecting on the milestone, which is part of an extensive $200 million renovation and expansion project that touches nearly every area of the hospital. “We’re excited to commemorate this important event and celebrate it with our patients, friends and neighbors.”

About the West Tower Expansion

Starting June 19, the West Tower will be open to patients, offering a variety of elevated healthcare services to the community. The expansion added three floors to the original West Tower footprint plus a new wing that encompasses all six floors for a total of nearly 175,000 new square feet and 141 new patient beds that have been added to Williamson Medical Center. The West Tower now includes a 35-bed ICU for critical care needs, 94 medical-surgical inpatient rooms, 33 obstetrics rooms, 10 pediatric inpatient rooms, and more. The Center also has two state-of-the-art catheterization labs and a brand-new electrophysiology lab.

Other renovations include an expanded Emergency Department from 28 to 43 beds, a third C-section operating room and brand new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with nine private bays (to be completed this fall).

The final phase of the Williamson Medical Center renovation and expansion project, which includes renovations to the Main Lobby and patient floors in the original tower, is expected to continue into 2025.
