Community Health Systems Invests $66 Million To Establish Shared Services Center in Nashville, Tennessee

05/14/2015
Community Health Systems will invest $66 million to expand its current operations by constructing a new Shared Services Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Through this expansion, the national healthcare company is expected to create 1,500 new jobs over the next five years.

“We’ve known for thirty years that Middle Tennessee is a great place to do business. We looked at many states and sites for this expansion and ultimately determined that Middle Tennessee offers the business environment, skilled workforce and quality of life to support our growth,” Wayne T. Smith, Chairman/CEO of Community Health Systems, Inc., said. “We are delighted to create new jobs in our home state and that our progress also means a direct and positive economic impact for Middle Tennessee.”

As Community Health Systems celebrates its 30th anniversary, it is expanding its physical footprint by constructing a new office building near Cane Ridge Road in southeastern Davidson County. The six-story, 240,000 square foot CHS Shared Services Center will perform some business and administrative functions that support the organization’s affiliated hospitals, enhancing operations efficiencies and standardizing processes.

“We want to thank Community Health Systems for this investment in Middle Tennessee and the new jobs they are creating in Davidson County,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Companies right now have a choice between not only what states they want to do business in but what countries, and when a company like CHS chooses to expand right here in Tennessee, it speaks volumes to the rest of the world about the high quality business environment we have and our talented workforce.”

“Community Health Systems’ investment will benefit the entire region with good jobs and it enhances our reputation as a leader in health care,” Ralph Schulz, President/CEO, Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, said. “CHS has always been a strong partner in helping to drive prosperity throughout Middle Tennessee and we’re pleased to see the company’s leadership continue.”

“Congratulations to Community Health Systems on its decision to expand and build a new facility in the Antioch area,” Tennessee Valley Authority Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “TVA and NES are privileged to partner with the state of Tennessee, the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County to facilitate highly impactful new job creation by Community Health Systems, one of our region’s major employers.”
