Every single family hope and pray that they'll never need to use emergency medical services but it's always reassuring to have those medical services available to you anyway. As you would expect from a modern American city Nashville has a selection of excellent hospitals and medical centers available to cater for the vast majority of your medical needs, which means that anyone living in Nashville can expect an excellent level of health care.
It's very hard to vote a hospital as being "best", especially when certain hospitals specialize in certain areas and others are for general family medical care. In an effort to highlight the quality of health care available in Nashville we did want to mention a few hospitals in this blog post - think of it as research done for you.
Vanderbilt University Hospital
This hospital has some of the finest pediatric (children's health) care facilities in the country. Vanderbilt University Hospital has over 900 beds and deals with around 48,000 admissions every single year. In addition to being a teaching hospital Vanderbilt is also nationally recognized for its quality of treatment of cancer, gynecology, neurology and orthopedics among many others. More than 81% of patients who attend this hospital would recommend it to friends, which is high praise indeed!
St. Thomas Hospital
This is a busy hospital, which dealt with just over 20,000 admissions in the last 12 months, and of those admissions more than 10,000 surgeries were performed. St. Thomas' has excellent treatment facilities in the area of cardiology but also offers excellent healthcare for patients with many, many other medical problems too. What patients think about a hospital is obviously very important and more than 86% of patients would recommend this hospital to their friends.
In short what this means for you is that you have the peace of mind of knowing that you have two excellent hospitals on your doorstep at the very least and that makes the decision to move to Nashville that little bit easier we would imagine?
