Williamson Medical Center Foundation Kicks Off Heart Month with campaign Benefitting the Littlest Patient Hearts

The Williamson Medical Center Foundation, Inc. is kicking off heart month with the launch of the "Have a Heart" campaign raising funds for heart monitors for Williamson Medical Center pediatric patients. The Foundation is reaching out to employees as well as the community at large for support.

"These monitors allow us to watch children's heart rate, heart rhythm, breathing patterns, and oxygen levels which are all used to assess, diagnose, and treat a variety of issues that may affect a patient's heart," said Jeremy Crawford, Director of Pediatric Services for Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center. "Cardiac monitors designed specifically for pediatric patients will help ensure the expedient assessment of our young patients, and further support the hospital's commitment to the best possible outcomes for our patients of all ages."

The Foundation will work with the hospital's wellness committee on campus to sell paper hearts supporting the cause at Buchanan's Café. Donors' hearts signed in honor of loved ones and with personal messages will be displayed in the café windows throughout the month of February. The community may also support the campaign through online donations by visiting

The mission of the Foundation is to serve as the charitable and developmental arm that supports Williamson Medical Center and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center in providing best-in-class health care services to the families of our community.
