NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans supported their official healthcare partner, Saint Thomas Health at their new Brentwood location where leaders and associates hosted a grand opening ceremony to unveil and bless the newly completed, state-of the-art facility.
The Brentwood location is the first of a network of locations planned to be developed in the next 12 to 18 months by Saint Thomas Medical Partners in the Middle Tennessee area to better serve each community. Saint Thomas Medical Partners is a part of Saint Thomas Health and Ascension, the nation's largest Catholic and non-profit health system.
"If we are going to transform healthcare, we've got to start from the very beginning and that introduction to our family and it comes with a primary care site like this," said Karen Springer, President and CEO of Saint Thomas Health, a part of Ascension. "As we expand the Saint Thomas Health community, we are focusing on opportunities to bring more care services closer to the homes of our patients. We are excited to improve access to holistic, faith-based care in this community."
The new care center is a full-service care site designed to meet the medical needs that are close to home. They are building a smarter network, offering on-site lab testing, imaging and other services available at one location. Through better communication, your primary care physician will listen to your needs and connect the dots for you. Saint Thomas wants to help you understand your options and make the best choices. It's not only better care, but less time until you feel healthier.

"What this means for our community is to bring the best of Saint Thomas closer to home in neighborhoods across middle Tennessee," said Fahad Tahir, President and CEO of Saint Thomas Medical Partners. "We have a commitment to expand access across the region and Brentwood is the first community where we can bring our presence and expand access, convenience and set a new standard for service."
Former Titans players, Kevin Dyson, Neil O'Donnell and Chris Sanders, Titans cheerleaders, Bri and Courtney along with mascot, T-Rac were also on hand to celebrate the grand opening.
"It's really convenient! Especially for a former athlete, when you are starting to show your age and wear and tear. Being able to find somewhere for convenience and access that is simple and quick and having a place like this right down the road from where I live will be real nice and convenient." said Dyson.
"We really designed the locations with the principle of how to make it convenient for the patient to not have to fight the downtown traffic and the growing city, but instead bring Saint Thomas closer to home. What we are really proud of is that we've selected these locations based on the advice of our patients and families." said Tahir.
One of the region's largest medical groups, Saint Thomas Medical Partners, is a physician-led medical group with more than 500 providers at nearly 100 locations serving patients in 28 specialties in communities throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky.
