A new addition to the Williamson Medical Center campus, the freestanding medical office building for the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee offers orthopedic surgery, arthroscopic surgery, sports medicine and spinal surgery by some of the top providers in the state. This four-story ambulatory healthcare center includes six orthopedic surgery operating rooms; outpatient imaging services; PT and OT space; nine private rooms for extended PACU patient recovery; physician offices, clinic space and private physician terrace; and bistro dining services with an inviting outdoor terrace. Designed for future growth, the facility can expand to include two additional floors, four ORs and extended PACU space with limited disruption to services.
In keeping with the campus’ Women and Children’s West Tower expansion (also designed by ESa), the facility is themed “Destination Franklin” to honor the architecture and iconic storefronts of Historic Downtown Franklin. The use of exterior stone, brick and sloped metal roof elements and interior wood and timber accents, artwork and other amenities expresses the city’s cultural heritage. Adjacent to an outdoor wellness garden, the light-filled, two-story main entrance lobby greets and orients incoming patients and guests. A separate exit with a dedicated elevator allows discharged surgery patients to bypass the busy main lobby. The campus promotes community connection and wellness through the integration of walking and running trails and the inclusion of roof top terraces that offer physicians, staff and patients fresh air and sunlight.
