Nashville's building boom isn't limited to downtown as new healthcare facilities are in the works to help meet the needs of a growing suburban population.
On Aug. 13, Ascension Saint Thomas and Acadia Healthcare broke ground on the construction of Saint Thomas Behavioral Health Hospital at 300 Great Circle Rd. in Nashville's Metro Center. The 76-bed inpatient behavioral health treatment facility is expected to create more than 200 jobs and will have dedicated adult and geriatric units, offering a wide range of programs to better serve these populations. In addition to inpatient acute care, the new facility will feature partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient services, traditional clinic services, residential care, and opioid treatment programs. The project is anticipated to be complete fall 2020.

Also last month, officials celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony for TriStar Health Park in Brentwood. The new development will offer 120,000 square feet of clinic space and feature primary and specialty care, urgent care, imaging services and outpatient surgery. Located at 1001 Health Park Drive in Brentwood, the project is slated for completion in the fall of 2020.
