is caring for people:
our patients,
their families
and one another.



Message from the COO

Something special occurs when you combine purposeful work with high-performing teams – you create environments where people look forward to coming to work. I am proud Ardent leads the country in the number of hospitals from one organization recognized by Modern Healthcare as “Best Places to Work.” Our corporate office has also been named as a “Top Workplace in Middle Tennessee” for three consecutive years.

We have high expectations for service and quality, because our patients and community entrust their care to us. On average, we care for more than 13,000 people a day. There are countless ways in which we impact the lives of our patients and their families. From those who provide care at the bedside to those supporting that care, every role within our organization contributes toward our purpose of caring for people. Every job is incredibly important and everyone on the Ardent team helps save lives.

We believe a critical ingredient for success is surrounding ourselves with great people. Our ability to fulfill our purpose depends on recruiting and retaining the best talent. The team we have built sets Ardent apart from many others and I am proud to work alongside talented individuals who are committed and connected to Ardent’s purpose.

Paul Kappelman
Ardent Health Services EVP and Chief Operating Officer
