$40,838 Was raised at the 2nd annual Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation Golf Tournament. The event was held earlier this month at the Stones River Country Club in Murfreesboro.

In the past six years, the Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation has funded over $738,500 for the hospital’s Nursery, Pediatric Department, and the Lee and Susan Moss Family NICU. This year, 100% of the proceeds will directly support the Dr. Jim Boerner Nursery-Pediatric Fund.


In 2021 alone, there were 3,565 babies born at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford. Those newborns thrived thanks to not only great care, but also thanks to funds that were donated to the foundation. Some of the past donations have allowed for the foundation to pay towards education programs, to purchase a new C-Section operating room table, 19 NIC-View cameras, 28 NICU Cardiac Monitors, 48-infant car seats and more.

Over the foundations 38-year history, over 100 million dollars has been raised. The funds have helped to provide additional support of Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford patients in the local hospital and at Outpatient Centers.
