UTHSC-Nashville Emergency Medicine Residents in Murfreesboro will spend the most of their time at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford (ASTR). ASTR opened its doors in 2010 as a new, $268 million, state-of-the art facility with 286 beds and remains the only hospital in the town of Murfreesboro.
ASTR is part of the Ascension Saint Thomas regional health system, which consists of nine hospitals and is a member of Ascension Health, the largest not-for-profit health system in the United States.
In order to provide a more diverse critical care experience, residents will spend a month in the pediatric ICU at the Children's Hospital at Erlanger Medical Center, a comprehensive regional pediatric center.
The Emergency and Trauma Center at UT Medical Center is the region's Level 1 Trauma Center for adults and children and serves as the tertiary referral center for medical care in East Tennessee, serving Know County and 21 surrounding counties.
