Luke Bryan and the Brett Boyer family and Foundation donated money to build a new wing on the Williamson Medical Center. With the two families as the primary donors, the wing will now be called the Boyer-Bryan wing of the hospital. This isn’t just adding their name to a hospital wing, though. It is a whole new wing. Their donations have helped make significant improvements to the center.

The expansion added three floors, plus a new north wing encompassing all six floors for nearly 175,000 new square feet. There are 134 new patient beds and a 35-bed ICU for critical care needs. It also includes 94 medical-surgical inpatient rooms, 33 obstetrics rooms, 10 pediatric in-patient rooms, and more.

The donations also helped the center expand and update its Cardiac Center, which now includes two state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization labs and a brand-new electrophysiology lab.

More improvements are also to come from the donations. This includes expanding and renovating the Emergency Department, increasing it from 28 to 43 beds. Finally, there will be a third C-section operating room and a brand-new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with nine private bays. These are coming this fall.

Luke Bryan Explains His Donation

Luke Bryan explained why this donation was so important to him. He and his wife, Caroline, have supported the hospital for years, and both of their children were born there. The couple also served as co-chairs for the campaign to construct and renovate the hospital.
