What's New Today

Some of the latest items posted to this site include:

  • Dr. Jeff Balser's latest video message covers the importance of the Metro Nashville and state "safer at home" orders, as well protecting and supporting members of our workforce.
  • We celebrate the generous gift from legendary country artist Dolly Parton. Parton is giving $1 million to support research into a bridge treatment for COVID-19 while work on a vaccine is pending.
  • Y'all are amazing. The blood drives that we hosted with the American Red Cross in March far exceeded their goals and helped save more than 500 lives. We will continue with twice weekly blood drives in April.
