World-class knowledge, hometown care.


Just next door to the “Silicon Valley of Healthcare,” where a globally renowned research hospital sets the pace for more than two dozen hospitals and medical centers, residents enjoy multiple healthcare assurances: cutting-edge quality, competitive choice and true hometown care.



A few of the leading names in the TCEA region include:


University Medical Center: The $26 million, four-story patient tower completed in 2009 is an obvious statement of this facility’s quality. However, a closer look at the range of care provided by UMC reveals another important reason why residents of Wilson County feel better—and feel better about their healthcare. Located in Lebanon, this 250-bed acute care facility offers a broad range of services, from orthopedics to obstetrics/gynecology, from neurology to cardiology to urology, from psychiatry to bariatric surgery and more. Founded by physicians in 1975, the hospital’s “University” name was inspired by the close association with Cumberland University.

HighPoint Health System: As a division of the nationwide 61-member network of LifePoint Hospitals®, HighPoint operates four hospitals in our region, including:

Riverview Regional Medical Center: Riverview offers the best of two worlds, combining the financial resources and strength of a premier healthcare system with dedicated local care and attention. In fact, in 2014 the Smith County facility was accorded LifePoint’s “High Five” award, accorded to only five of LifePoint’s 61 hospitals. Riverview earned the accolade by fulfilling the system’s five guiding principles: delivering high quality patient care, supporting physicians, creating an excellent workplace for employees, strengthening the hospital’s role in the community and ensuring fiscal responsibility.

Sumner Regional Medical Center (SRMC): Voted in the Top 20 of the nation’s “most beautiful hospitals,” HighPoint’s flagship facility in Gallatin combines good looks with great care. The views in this 155-bed hospital are splendid, both outside and in, with arched and floor-to-ceiling windows, accented marble floors, contemporary lighting and wood craftsmanship in 70 private patient Wellness Rooms. The grand lobby featuring a waterfall welcomes with an especially inviting feel. Even better, the welcome within this beautiful setting includes patient care delivered by leading healthcare professionals equipped with the latest tools and technology. The light filtering through those elegant windows is bright—and so is the future at SRMC.

Trousdale Medical Center: This 25-bed critical access facility in Hartsville is small in size but mighty in services, offering the latest technology and a range of diagnostic and treatment options that includes a 24-hour emergency department, computed tomography (CT scan) and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.

Macon County General Hospital: This 25-bed critical access hospital in Lafayette is a uniquely powerful community healthcare resource, offering a deep bench of specialty clinics encompassing cardiology, orthopedics, surgery, podiatry, ob/gyn, gastroenterology and even hearing health, plus strategic diagnostic services like a mobile MRI.
