Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital

Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital

Williamson County is known for having a lot of things. There’s great sight-seeing in historic downtown Franklin and Leiper’s Fork. There’s great shopping at the CoolSprings Galleria and there are amazing school systems.

But there’s one thing Williamson County has been lacking and that is a state-of-the-art dedicated pediatric inpatient hospital. Everyone knows the level of care associated with the Monroe Carell Jr. name and now that amazing name is about to land on Williamson County’s very own children’s hospital right here on the Williamson Medical Center campus.

The facility will feature a dedicated children’s Emergency Department and 12 inpatient beds, with four additional observation beds. What this brings to Williamson County is peace of mind for every parent. Previously, excellent inpatient care was 20 miles up the road in Nashville. Beginning July 1, 2015, all of that gets a lot closer to home.

The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center will revolutionize pediatric care in our own backyard.

The three-story building is currently under construction on the West side of the WMC campus at I-65 and Highway 96 West and is slated for a July 1, 2015 opening date.
