TriStar Portland ER and Sumner County EMS helped bring attention to a culture of mental health awareness by supporting filming of the music video for Grammy-winner and singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton for his recently released song Fire Away. The message of this song is brought to life in a powerful video capturing a couple’s journey through changing mental health stages that ultimately result in the wife committing self-harm and requiring an emergency medical response from EMS and emergency room staff. Stapleton’s production team wanted the video to be as authentic as possible to truly capture the emotion and urgency conveyed about mental health in this song. They collaborated with Colby Carroll, RN, CHEP, manager of TriStar Portland ER, and Sumner County EMS for guidance on what would happen during a real-life hospital emergency code. The crew set up in TriStar Portland ER’s trauma room that is specifically designed for paramedics to bring in a patient to expedite resuscitation or prepare for treatment. Filming lasted approximately five hours with footage captured of Sumner County EMS transporting the patient to the ambulance entrance, wheeling the patient in on a stretcher and receiving resuscitation in the trauma room.

Developer Gallatin Associated A LP is seeking approval of a preliminary master development plan, which would include new retail, restaurant and office space in addition to the hotels, to be located on 8.15 acres along Tulip Poplar Drive between Nashville Pike and North Belvedere Drive. One of the project’s two 99-room hotels would be a Hilton Garden Inn. “It’s a very model urban setting,” said Rob Kalisz, a planner with the Gallatin Planning Department. “It has different mixtures of brick and panels with the colors vary to help break up the continuous long look of the building.” The Gallatin Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommended approval of the project to the Gallatin City Council. In addition to the 198 total hotel rooms proposed for the property, the site would also include 32,600 square feet of general retail space, 9,850 square feet of meeting space, 7,500 square feet of general office space and restaurant space with 390 seats, according to plans submitted to the Gallatin Planning Department. The plan must pass two readings and a public hearing must be held before it can be approved.
An ounce may not seem like a lot, but at TriStar Hendersonville’s neonatal intensive
care unit (NICU), they celebrate even the tiniest weight gains, milestones and miracles. The newly-constructed Birth Center is equipped with specialized resources to care for babies born at 32 weeks gestation. The private-bed NICU rooms allow parents to stay with their newborn while they receive critical care and grow. Jenna and Rodd Hunter had their second baby Elenore at Tri Star and she was born with low blood sugar and a low heart rate, so she was admitted to the NICU where they spent 10 days. The newly constructed Birth Center at TriStar Hendersonville features a six private room Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), spacious maternity suites and a lactation boutique for inpatient and outpatient breastfeeding services.
