Tennessee Health Services and Development Agency approved Vanderbilt University Medical Center's request to build a 42-bed hospital on Veterans Parkway near I-840 in Murfreesboro.

The final issue on the agenda for Dec. 15, 2021 dealt with the request from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The contested application was approved by the state agency with a vote of 5 in favor and 1 opposing.

A similar application for a proposed Vanderbilt Rutherford Hospital was considered by the agency in August 2020, but was denied due to opposition from Saint Thomas Rutherford, StoneCrest Medical Center and Williamson Medical Center. 

The full-service acute care hospital will be located at an unaddressed site on Veterans Parkway at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and S.R. 840 in Murfreesboro. The project also seeks to initiate cardiac catheterization services. The estimated project cost is $144,276,600.
