Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital

Our History

A Legacy of Compassionate Care

For almost 100 years, Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital has been devoted to physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital is the largest not-for-profit community hospital in Middle Tennessee, licensed for 683 acute and rehab care beds. Located in Nashville's midtown area, the hospital's campus covers more than six city blocks or 38 acres with nearly two million square feet of space. Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital's heritage of healing is one of continuous growth, community service and superior care. Over the years, we have established nursing schools, become a pioneer in technical advances and grown into a major medical center that provides diversified care.

Incorporated in 1918 and opening its doors to the community on March 20, 1919 as Protestant Hospital, our facility was built to meet the urgent healthcare needs of the city's growing population. Protestant Hospital became Mid-State Baptist Hospital on April 21, 1948, and then later transitioned to Baptist Hospital on Dec. 17, 1964. By 1973, Baptist Hospital had grown to 600 beds and become one of the largest hospitals in the mid-South. In 2002, Baptist Hospital joined Saint Thomas Health's regional health system which today consists of nine hospitals – Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital, Saint Thomas West Hospital and Saint Thomas Hospital for Specialty Surgery in Nashville, Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro, Saint Thomas Hickman Hospital in Centerville, Saint Thomas DeKalb Hospital in Smithville, Saint Thomas Highlands Hospital in Sparta, Saint Thomas River Park Hospital in McMinnville, and Saint Thomas Stones River Hospital in Woodbury – and a comprehensive network of affiliated joint ventures in diagnostics, cardiac services and ambulatory surgery as well as medical practices, clinics and rehabilitation facilities. 

Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital is a member of Saint Thomas Health and Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit health system.
