Last week, Tennova Healthcare-Lebanon officially became Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital (VWCH).

The two-campus facility is licensed for 245 beds and is the sole provider of both inpatient and outpatient medical services in Wilson County. In Lebanon, the main campus is located at 1411 West Baddour Parkway, while the hospital’s second campus, which provides behavioral health and physical rehabilitation services, is located at 500 Park Ave.

VWCH is staffed by more than 200 community physicians and employs approximately 600 administrators, nurses and support personnel. Through the acquisition Vanderbilt University Medical Center retained substantially all employees of the hospital’s previous owner.
