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.
The Bone and Joint Fund has been able to support various charitable organizations such as Brightstone, Friends of Franklin Parks, The Forrest Spence Fund, and Deer Run Camps & Retreats. In addition, with the Williamson Medical Center Foundation, Bone and Joint Institute has been able to award scholarships for graduating high school seniors in Williamson County who are entering the health sciences.

In 2022, we are continuing the support of our community through an ongoing partnership with the Williamson Medical Center Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. Our inaugural event, The Skeleton Gala, will be held at Liberty Hall in the Factory on Saturday, October 29. This will be a black-tie event filled with fun, entertainment and dancing. All proceeds of the event will support the Bone and Joint Institute Fund of the Williamson Medical Center Foundation.
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.
