Vanderbilt University Medical Center will break ground on Wednesday, March 4, at 2 p.m., on a new 31,000-square-foot facility that will offer adult outpatient specialty care, along with limited pediatric specialty care and imaging services to the citizens of Sumner and surrounding counties.
Medical Center leaders will be joined by members from area chambers of commerce, local and state officials and members of the community to celebrate the start of construction for the project being built on Anderson Lane North in Hendersonville’s Indian Lake Community.
The facility will feature 40 clinic exam rooms, urgent care services and imaging capabilities such as CT, ultrasound and X-ray.
Specialties that will be on site at the single-story facility include women’s health, pediatrics, adult primary care, orthopaedics, imaging, rheumatology and walk-in-care. Additionally, the facility will have four chairs for non-chemotherapy medical infusions.
Vanderbilt expects to staff the facility with 50 to 60 employees, including doctors, nurses and additional personnel.
Construction, which will be carried out by Al. Neyer, will begin immediately with completion expected in early 2021.
Al. Neyer recently constructed Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt’s new 37,500-square-foot pediatric facility in Murfreesboro which brings specialty care, outpatient surgery and imaging services to children in Rutherford and surrounding counties.
Hendersonville ranks as Tennessee’s 10th largest city and saw a population increase of approximately 12% between 2010 and 2018, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau estimates. Growth projections show that the population in Sumner County will increase 45% by 2035.
With a well-established presence in Sumner County, Vanderbilt currently offers adult and pediatric care in many different specialties, which include Vanderbilt Eye Institute Hendersonville; allergy, spine and orthopaedics in Gallatin; and pediatric specialty and after-hours clinics, also in Gallatin.
