No longer just a community hospital, Williamson Medical Center has grown into a full-service regional healthcare system that includes a presence in more than 30 different locations across the county. WMC officials announced that its family of healthcare organizations will be united under one new brand — Williamson Health.
“Since our founding on January 15, 1958, Williamson Medical Center has expanded from a small, 50-bed hospital to a regional, full-service healthcare system offering exceptional care and a wide variety of high-quality specialists, primary care physicians and services,” says Phil Mazzuca, CEO of Williamson Health. “From emergency medicine to cardiology services, OB and NICU to orthopedic care, GI to advanced surgical technologies and more, Williamson County residents can get world-class healthcare right here at home.”
Williamson Health provides care by way of the Williamson Medical Center (WMC) acute-care hospital, Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee (BJIT), Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center, the Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center, Williamson Medical Group (WMG), its countywide Emergency Medical Services (EMS) organization, multiple joint venture Vanderbilt Health and Williamson Medical Center Walk-In Clinics in Williamson County, the WMC Foundation and more.
“This is a straightforward, clear way to recognize how these entities have worked together for years,” Mazzuca said. “The new brand simply unifies the many healthcare services we proudly provide our community under one name. The change will not affect our processes, patients or staff in any way, and we proudly remain an independent, free-standing, nonprofit organization.”
Same services, new brand
As the system’s flagship facility, Williamson Medical Center will retain its current name but will adopt the new brand colors and mark. Likewise for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center; Vanderbilt Health and Williamson Medical Center Walk-In Clinics; and the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee.
All other system locations will now be publicly branded as Williamson Health. This includes the Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center, all WMG physician practices, the WMC Foundation, all outpatient imaging and lab locations, as well as its EMS organization which includes 18 rapid response units.
The hospital has already launched a historic expansion project that will touch nearly every department of the hospital with improvements to Labor and Delivery, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Cardiology, Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and more.
The full Williamson Health brand roll-out will take place in phases throughout the expansion and renovation project currently underway at Williamson Medical Center. In addition, Williamson Health will launch a modernized website design this spring to provide an easier and better-informed experience.
