FIRST HORIZON FOUNDATION DONATES $2.5 MILLION TO RELIEF EFFORTS
First Horizon Foundation announced March 31 that it is donating $2.5 million in support of COVID-19 emergency relief efforts to nonprofit organizations throughout its footprint. The funding will be distributed to select organizations that provide meal, educational and emergency assistance relief in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
The Foundation will collaborate with the First Horizon Bank market presidents across its footprint to identify and coordinate with the organizations that will receive expedited grants intended to help the broadest number of individuals and families impacted during this national healthcare crisis.
“In Middle Tennessee, the First Horizon Foundation and our employees are proud to support local relief efforts and nonprofits that are doing amazing work in helping individuals, families and businesses get through this difficult time,” said First Horizon Middle Tennessee market president Carol Yochem.
The special COVID-19 relief funds being provided are in addition to the Foundation’s annual charitable giving grants that supported 650 organizations in 2019.

Harpeth Valley Golf Center remains open during the COVID-19 shutdown. The center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. (10 p.m. closing beginning May 1) with walkup window service and all required safety precautions implemented.
Governor Bill Lee has designated golf as a safe activity. A round of golf or a visit to the driving range allows people to get out of the house, for a safe, socially-distanced activity during the pandemic.
The Harpeth Valley Golf Center is located at 7629 Old Harding Road. Additional information is available by calling 615.646.8858 or online at HarpethValleyGolf.com.
STAR PT LAUNCHES TELEREHAB PROGRAM
As a CDC-defined essential medical service provider, STAR Physical Therapy remains open during COVID-19 shutdown. However, to ensure that ill or at risk patients continue to have access to physical therapy, occupational therapy and workers comp services, STAR has launched a new TeleRehab program.
TeleRehab is an alternative to traditional clinic-based outpatient rehabilitation that can be completed in the comfort of the patient’s home. STAR’s TeleRehab visits utilize a platform that ensures HIPAA / HITECH compliance and utilizes 128-bit encryption for patient privacy.
TeleRehab occurs on a scheduled date and time just like a traditional clinic visit. However, TeleRehab visits have patients meet one-on-one with a therapist virtually. During these virtual visits, STAR therapists can provide many of the same skilled services offered in the clinic including an assessment of the patient’s condition, patient education, and progression of exercises to help improve strength, range of motion, posture, neuromuscular control and safety.
To schedule a TeleRehab visit, patients should call their nearest STAR Physical Therapy location or the central referral number at 866.568.9752. There are two STAR locations in Bellevue: 7640 Highway 70 South (615.673.1420) and 8101 Highway 100 (615.646.0364). Additional information is available online at STARPT.com.
