Planetree: patient-centered care
For more than 60 years, Maury Regional Medical Center has served the communities of southern Middle Tennessee. With a staff of more than 2,000 employees, 200 affiliated physicians and 300 volunteers, we strive to provide care that is respectful of the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients.
In 2011, we partnered with the internationally recognized, non-profit organization Planetree whose philosophy is patient-centered care in a healing environment. Planetree was founded in 1978 and has become a pioneer in personalizing, humanizing and demystifying the health care experience for both patients and their families. The Planetree model focuses on the empowerment of patients and their families through information and education and it also encourages the creation of “healing partnerships” with caregivers.
Affiliation with Planetree requires that we meet extensive patient care criteria that challenge our staff to be focused on teamwork, innovative with ideas and dedicated to “every patient, every day," which has resulted in the medical center offering a variety of amenities.
As we are committed to a journey of excellence, we are currently the only acute care medical center in Tennessee to have this affiliation.
