An Open Letter from the NorthCrest Health Board of Trustees

In November, NorthCrest Health announced our organization had signed a non-binding Letter of Intent with TriStar Health, an affiliate of HCA Healthcare. Since that announcement, we have continued progressing through a due diligence period to explore NorthCrest Health joining the TriStar family and the potential benefit for the community.

Ever since the NorthCrest senior leadership and Board of Trustees set out on this journey we have maintained the same mission we’ve always had: to enhance community and patient wellness through the teamwork of skilled and compassionate employees and physicians.

Our dedication to Robertson County and the surrounding area remains steadfast, and our commitment to ensuring access to high-quality healthcare services is, and always has been, unwavering.

During recent weeks our Board members, leaders, physicians and our team members have been discussing questions our community has presented and we are all grateful for the input and curiosity of all. As a community hospital, we have the advantage of knowing one another very well. Our relationships with the community are what drive our Board and senior leaders to make every effort to preserve the great health system we have here at NorthCrest. 

As we continue to weather the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic together, the importance of local healthcare access has never been more important of a priority than now. The ongoing work of our healthcare teams and frontline workers continues to inspire us all, and the support of the community is an enduring source of encouragement.  

While the rollout of multiple vaccines is providing hope into the new year, we are also encouraged by the promising future of our local healthcare system. As we continue to explore the details of potentially joining TriStar Health, we assure you our leadership team and Board of Trustees have in mind the best interests of healthcare in our community when considering a potential affiliation. 

If we are to become part of TriStar Health, we will continue our commitment to improving the health of our friends, family, neighbors and region. As we have since the beginning, we will continue to provide public updates as the process continues to develop.  . 

We remain excited for what’s to come in this journey for NorthCrest Health and our community and hope you share in our excitement for our shared future.

Sincerely,

NorthCrest Health Board of Trustees
