Last month, Ascension Saint Thomas proposed construction of the state's first neighborhood hospital, which would be located in Murfreesboro near the Westlawn community. If approved by HSDA, the new facility would serve as a satellite hospital of Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford to serve one of the fastest growing zip codes in the state. Designed to complement services on the main campus, Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford at Westlawn will include eight private inpatient medical beds, an Emergency Department with eight treatment rooms, diagnostic imaging and laboratory services. The hospital will have two levels, with the second floor used for clinical office space and additional clinical services. The Certificate of Need hearing on the project is scheduled for August. If approved, completion of the estimated $24.6 million project is anticipated for early 2022.
