Our Quality Means Your Quality of Life.

To us, quality of care encompasses the entire patient experience – from knowing what to expect before surgery to our surgical excellence to the compassionate care you receive throughout your stay. Our concern does not stop there – we will call you after discharge with our goal in mind of preventing events after discharge. It’s everything that helps make your outcome superior. For 11 years in a row, we’ve been recognized among the nation's top five percent for spine surgery by Healthgrades.* In addition, we're the only hospital in Nashville to receive the 5-star top rating for patient experience from CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services).** And these are just two of the awards we've earned.

When it comes to complex procedures like spinal surgery or joint replacement surgery, where you receive care can make all the difference. So please look at our record. Examine our physicians’ credentials. See what patients are saying about us. Then choose the hospital that is totally dedicated to getting you back to the best life possible. 

* Named among the Top 5% in the nation for Spine Surgery 2008-2018 by Healthgrades.
