Physicians and staff of the Bone and Joint Institute have been pillars in the Williamson County community for over 40 years while being involved in various charitable and community events. In partnership with the Williamson Medical Center Foundation, Bone and Joint Institute has had the opportunity to continue participation in charitable events that sustain the values of Bone and Joint Institute, including empathy, compassion, faith in healing, and service to the community.
We are continuing our support of the community with our ongoing partnership with the Williamson Medical Center Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, to raise funds for expansion of the Williamson Medical Center Emergency Room. Our inaugural event, the Skeleton Gala, will be our main fundraising event for this project. The Skeleton Gala, a black-tie optional event, filled with entertainment and dancing, will be held at the beautiful Bone and Joint Institute on Saturday, October 23. All proceeds from the Skeleton Gala will fund expansion of the Emergency Room at Williamson Medical Center.
The Craig Ferrell Memorial Scholarship is named after the late Craig Ferrell, M.D., founder of the Franklin Bone and Joint Clinic, orthopaedic surgeon at Williamson Medical Center, and team physician for the United States Olympic Team, supporting equestrian and swimming. Dr. Ferrell was a pillar in the community while participating in various charitable organizations. His legacy led to the establishment of the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee. This $1000 scholarship is available to graduating high school seniors in Williamson County who will be pursuing a degree in medicine, athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or other health related fields.
