Beginning in 2022, the Williamson Medical Center will begin work on a $189 million project that will renovate and expand its main hospital in Franklin.

On Oct. 11, WMC officials announced the medical center received approval from the Williamson County Commission to seek bond funding for a project that will add 66 hospital beds and make improvements to the facility.

The hospital's emergency room, intensive care unit and obstetrics departments, and patient rooms will undergo renovations, according to WMC.

WMC CEO Phil Mazzuca said the project will help the hospital keep up with the county's rapid growth.

“As Williamson County and the surrounding region continue to evolve and grow, it’s imperative that WMC do the same,” Mazzuca said in a release. “We are committed to providing the highest quality health care to the communities we serve, and, when this project is complete, we will be able to continue doing so for years to come.”



The project is expected to be constructed in phases and is slated for completion in 2024, according to WMC. The bond will be paid off over the next 20 years with hospital revenue as well as with private funds raised through the Williamson Medical Center Foundation.
