As President of TriStar Health, I thank you for the opportunity to tell you about our family and how we fit into the healthcare picture throughout Tennessee, South Central Kentucky and Northern Georgia.
TriStar Health is the region’s largest, most comprehensive healthcare provider with 18 hospitals and 10 ambulatory surgery centers. Our facilities range in size from TriStar Centennial Medical Center, our tertiary center in the heart of Nashville, to TriStar Ashland City, an emergency-service facility. Our hospitals are vital to the community they serve and crucial to our strategy of offering quality medical care closest to our customers.
We are committed to delivering the highest quality patient care possible. Our model for delivering quality patient care close to where our patients live and work is unmatched by any other healthcare provider in the region.
As we evolve to meet our customer's changing needs, we operate within an unchanging system of values. We are proud to continue the legacy of Dr. Thomas Frist Sr., the founder of our parent company, HCA. Dr. Frist embraced the worth of the human spirit and the duty of each of us to improve ourselves and those with whom we come into contact. We believe that bettering the human condition is the greatest good any individual can achieve.
A key advantage of TriStar Health is our ability to build on one another’s strengths and successes. And that is the foundation for the TriStar Health brand that was first adopted more than a decade ago.
You might ask how else we differentiate ourselves from other hospitals in the hearts and minds of our customers? How do we serve you better? We differ in three ways:
We're closer to our customers. Our proximity is one of our greatest strengths. We have more bricks and mortar- more feet on the street- in our local communities. Our managers and employees are actively involved in the communities they serve. They help tailor programs to meet local needs.
Our family of hospitals offers the entire continuum of care. Patients receive the care they need in the setting most convenient for them - from initial primary care physician visits to community hospital care and specialized services to rehabilitation programs to get you back on your feet. Here are just a few examples of how our Family of Hospitals work to our patients' advantage:
Heart patients can get top quality cardiac care at their local hospitals backed up by the TriStar Heart Network. With 10 Accredited Chest Pain centers working together to provide the highest quality cardiovascular and emergency services close to where you live and work, our heart network is saving thousands of lives every year.
The first to offer community-based angioplasty, beating heart surgery, robotic heart bypass and valve repair, with nationally-recognized cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons and the most advanced technology available, the TriStar Heart Network is changing the way hearts are saved.
TriStar Health is also home to TriStar Sarah Cannon Cancer Center Network. Accredited by the Cancer Commission of the American College of Surgeons with Commendations for providing superior cancer care—The Sarah Cannon Cancer Center network is second to none in the region for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
With nine affiliated medical facilities, The Sarah Cannon Cancer Center Network has grown to become the largest community-based, privately funded, diagnostic and treatment center in the country. With more than 100 world-class cancer experts and researchers in two states, more patients are benefiting from life-saving cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Without a doubt, the most significant distinction of TriStar Health hospitals is the quality and commitment of our staff. Our experience, knowledgeable employees and more than 300 board certified physicians all share a passion and commitment to making your stay with us as comfortable and convenient as possible.
We offer a solid, always improving record of clinical and operational excellence that directly affects lives. A part of our strategy is to find local physician champions and support their efforts with all the advantages our system brings.
From the most trust emergency departments to bariatric care, TriStar Health facilities offer a full range of primary care, cardiology, vascular, oncology, orthopaedic and neurology services to meet any healthcare need.
We appreciate the opportunity to share our successes with you.
