Location and Directions


St Thomas Rutherford has saved my ex-husband's life three times in the last three years. The first time he was told in October of 2015 he had pneumonia by a doctor at a walk-in. I took him to St Thomas three days later and he was having congestive heart failure with a cardiac aneurysm. In 2016 they saved him from a torn aorta and another cardiac aneurysm. In December 2017 they saved him when he blood clots in his lungs. We will never go anywhere else. We are more than grateful to the ER associates, doctors and nurses, the hospitals, and to the gracious donors that cover his bill because he is disabled with no insurance. He would not be alive without St Thomas. If I could give them 100,000 stars I would. Thank you for all you have done for him. (2 months ago)

I see all the negative reviews and it breaks my heart that so many have had such a poor experience there. I know when you or a loved one is sick the most important thing on your mind is getting better. Therefore when reviewing any hospital its difficult because your still sick when you leave in a lot of cases so you feel adequate care was not given. I have been in the ER of this hospital on several occasions, had 4 surgeries there and been admitted more times then I can count as I have cancer. I have to say there are times I have been there and feel like its a disasters place to go. Other times I've felt this has been the best place in the world. As I reflect back on the visits though, even the ones at the time seemed horrible, I realize that I am dealing with human beings and they are doing the best they can. We do not know who is in the next room that these nurses and doctors are dealing with. We do not know if they lost a patient that day (I imagine losing someone plays on your heart pretty strong) So I have to give them all 5 stars. The effort may not seem what you want at that time but they are giving you all they have to give. Believe me I've lived in Las Vegas, Colorado and Ohio and been in MANY hospitals and this one is DEFINITELY one of the hardest worked I have seen. I for one am thankful for them and all they do.

My daughter suffered a concussion in January 2018. We waited in the emergency room for 4 1/2 hours to spend 5 minutes with an ER doctor who gave us questionable advice. To make it worse, the hospital is in the United Healthcare network, but they are using ER doctors who are not in the network. Insurance paid nothing. Our cost for just the ER doctor is $501. We had no choice of ER doctors. When you have an emergency, you really do not think to ask an ER doctor at an in network hospital " Are you in the United Healthcare network?". I recommend that you go on down I-24 to Smyrna to a much better hospital and ER. (a week ago)

Labor and delivery has been absolutely incredible for our family during this visit. All the staff have been excellent and really care to make sure everything has been handled. Will definitely recommend them to any families looking for a birth hospital! (a month ago)

June 9th my daughter was in someone else's care and broke her leg and was brought to Er here by the other person. My rights as my daughter's primary custodial parent with rights to all medical decisions were not respected upon my arrival, as well as I was denied request for a social worker. She is only two years old with a fracture. The security officer and triage nurse that night were so unprofessional and extremely disrespectful. A call from HR stating they will follow up on this isn't enough to make this and all the trouble it has caused right. (a week ago)
