MURFREESBORO -- TrustPoint Hospital held an open house last month. More than 500 professionals and other members of the community attended and had the opportunity to visit with key physicians, meet the staff, and take a self-guided tour of the impressive facility.

Visitors enjoyed cake and punch and toured the new 70,000 square foot, 60 bed hospital that offers inpatient acute physical rehabilitation services and behavioral health services. Both of these specialty services offer a level of care previously unavailable in Rutherford County and do not duplicate services provided at MTMC or StoneCrest Medical Center. The new hospital, located on Thompson Lane about one-quarter mile away from Medical Center Parkway, has opened for business and is currently treating patients.

TrustPoint Hospital is majority owned by Polaris Hospital Company, based out of Brentwood, Tennessee. Polaris currently has one other hospital located in Lubbock, Texas. Also called TrustPoint Hospital, it recently announced that it had been ranked in the top 10% of the nearly 800 Medical Rehabilitation facilities in the US for 2011 by Uniform Data System for patient outcomes.
