Jun. 20, 2019, 9:10 AM

 Supporters cut the ribbon last week to celebrate the newly expanded and renamed Pinson Hospital Hospitality House, which provides lodging for families and long-term patients at Nashville-area hospitals. Front row, from left are Board Chair Lisa Slipkovich, Ann Krenson, board member C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Mickey Beazley, Metro Mayor David Briley and Hospitality House Executive Director Angie Stiff. Beazley and Krenson led efforts to open the original facility in 1974. Currently located at 214 Reidhurst Ave., it was renamed at the request of philanthropists Jim and Janet Ayers (not pictured), major contributors to the renovation. “We are thrilled that the Pinson Hospital Hospitality House will be able to now accommodate even more families that are impacted by extended illnesses and injuries and have the added burden of finding affordable lodging,” said Janet Ayers.
