The Country Music Association has donated $3 million to support the latest expansion of Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital.
The $100 million, four-story addition is expected to begin in early winter. The project will add an estimated 70 to 80 new beds when the two initial floors are opened.
“Building floors means helping more children and families — locally, regionally and around the world — and I can't imagine anyone with a heart not embracing what is going on at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt," Kix Brooks, who serves on both the boards of CMA and Monroe Carell, said in a release. "When you see the courage of a child, or the face of a parent, you know how important it is for our industry to support the ongoing growth of Children's Hospital and why it is life changing."

Community Health Systems is being taken to task by the National Labor Relations Board, which is consolidating several regional disputes into a single case that will be handled in Ohio. CHS executives are being accused of violating the rights of some of their employees by, among other things, not negotiating in good faith, retaliating against people taking part in union activities and making it hard for workers to discuss working conditions. In all, the Franklin-based company (Ticker: CYH) faces 29 charges related to seven of its hospitals in four states.
To avoid unnecessary delay and to conserve public and private resources, the General Counsel transferred all of these cases to Region 8, Cleveland, which issued the consolidated complaint. Absent settlement, the NLRB is scheduled to begin litigation in Cleveland on December 15, 2015.
