Luke Bryan is a major supporter of the Williamson Medical Center in Franklin, Tennessee – so much so that a new wing at the hospital has been named after him, his wife Caroline, and the Brett Boyer Foundation.

The Brett Boyer Foundation was founded by Caroline’s sister, Ellen Boyer and her husband, Bo, after they lost their baby, Sadie Brett, due to a congenital heart defect. The couple have since campaigned to raise awareness, increase education, and fund research into the condition.

Luke and Caroline have been longtime supporters of the Williamson Medical Center; their children were born there. The couple served as co-chairs in constructing and renovating the new hospital wing.

According to a post on Instagram, the new Boyer-Bryan West Tower – dedicated to Caroline and Luke and the Brett Boyer Foundation – has had an amazing transformation, adding an extra 175,000 square feet and 134 new patient beds.

The Boyer-Bryan West Tower contains “a 35-bed ICU for critical care needs, 94 medical-surgical inpatient rooms, 33 obstetrics rooms” and ten paediatric inpatient rooms” in addition to the expansion of the hospital’s Cardiac Center, which now includes “two state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization labs and a brand-new electrophysiology lab.”

The new hospital wing has also seen the expansion and renovation of the Emergency Department – going from 28 to 43 beds – a third C-section operating room, and a brand new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with nine private bays to be completed later this year.

In a statement, Bryan said of his relationship with the Williamson Medical Center (via Taste Of Country), “Williamson Medical Center has played a significant role in our lives. Our children were born here, and we've been in the emergency room more times than we can count. To be able to play a part in this transformational project was a no-brainer for us.

“We love this hospital, its talented and compassionate staff, and everything the Williamson Health system does for our community.”

At the end of June, Luke Bryan dropped his latest single, Love You, Miss You, Mean It. The new song comes months after Bryan made headlines after slipping on a fan’s phone and falling on stage. Luckily, he was okay and played it for laughs.
