The new TriStar Mt. Juliet ER had its ribbon cutting on Nov. 29, allowing city leaders and members of the community to tour the center.
Brian Marger, CEO of TriStar Summit, said the 24-hour, full-service ER is nearly completed. The 9,000-square-foot, free-standing emergency center is equipped with advanced imagining and lab services.
Marger thanked city leadership for their support of the project, as well as his predecessor who had the idea for the Mt. Juliet ER.
Heather Rohan, president and CEO of TriStar Health, said the new ER comes at the 50th anniversary of HCA’s founding, the company that owns TriStar. She said the company was founded on caring and improving human life, and it is important to bring care as close to the community as they can.
Mt. Juliet Mayor Ed Hagerty welcomed TriStar to the community and wished them success, saying that it is a facility for every single person in the community.
Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce officials said the ribbon cutting commemorated HCA’s $11 million investment in bringing healthcare closer to home for residents of Mt. Juliet and Wilson County.
TriStar Mt. Juliet ER is located at 100 Wilfong Pkwy (I-40 exit 229A).
