SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Spring Hill will have its first emergency room when Tri-Star Centennial opens its doors on Monday morning.
It will be a full-service, free-standing emergency department, including a medical lab, imaging diagnostic services, and telemedicine technology for consult with specialists. It also features a helipad for expedited transport to area hospitals for seriously ill or injured patients
It took Tri-Star more than six years to make the new emergency department a reality. It had planned on building a full-care hospital on the site.
After getting approval for a 56-bed facility, two nearby hospitals began a legal fight to stop the plan. After years of appeals Tri-Star abandoned the plan.
In November of 2010, the company was granted approval to build the emergency department. Construction on the facility began in April of 2012.
It's the only place for medical care between Franklin and Columbia, and will be open 24 hours a day.
