It has been only five months since TrustPoint Hospital opened, but the health care facility has already added 16 additional beds to its inpatient behavioral health program and the staff has expanded to more than 150 employees.
The 76-bed facility continues to grow and is adding two new psychiatrists as part of its goal to provide exceptional and accessible inpatient acute physical rehabilitation and behavioral health services for Rutherford County and the surrounding areas.
Dr. Ravi Singh, medical director of ClearPath Behavioral Health Services at TrustPoint Hospital, said he is looking forward to the addition of more doctors.
