Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital has been here since your grandmother delivered your mother. At that time, Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital had just 37 beds and, when expansion was necessary, we simply added a few rooms.
Today, explosive population growth has pressed us to develop a long term solution, bringing forth the opening of a new Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital replacement facility. This solution was created with you in mind. It's about making your patient experience at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital better than at any other hospital. It's about making certain that every single patient we serve receives the best possible care.
At almost 600,000 square feet, our new hospital is twice as large as Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital's previous facility. The 286-bed hospital provides all private patient rooms with more space for family and visitors and is dedicated to you and your rapid recovery. Expanded surgical, maternity and emergency services offer an exceptionally equipped environment with patient experience that is second to none.

We have worked hard to earn the funds to build you the best hospital. In a demonstration of support and belief in our plan, Ascension Healthcare has generously committed $247 million in construction costs. In addition, the Christy-Houston Foundation has pledged $10 million in support of this much needed project. We ask that you help us raise the final $10 million needed to bring our new hospital to life.
We invite you to partner with Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital to complete this ambitious and necessary project.
We invite you, the friends and neighbors we serve, to pledge your commitment to this project. Help us provide Tomorrow's Technologies, Tomorrow's Service, Tomorrow's Choices today.
