Wright Pinson, CEO of the Vanderbilt Health System and deputy vice chancellor for health affairs, said in a release.

Centennial seeking CON extension

Centennial Medical Center is asking the state’s Health Services and Development Agency to extend the expiration date of a 2008 Certificate of Need as it continues work on the $143 million, multi-phase project. Thus far, the HCA hospital has completed some of the work approved by the state agency in ’08, including the creation of the new Sarah Cannon Cancer Center, and started on some more — like the new medical office building on 23rd Avenue. But spokeswoman Carol Fite said the hospital is asking for a 24-month extension from the March 1, 2011, expiration date so it can continue the CON work on a timeline that provides the least disruption to patients. Still unfinished is Centennial's new heart center, which will shift 51 beds from Skyline Medical Center to Centennial Medical Center.

TriStar starts Spring Hill ED planning

TriStar Health System said last week that no party has appealed the Certificate of Need it was granted in November to build a satellite emergency department in Spring Hill, so it will move forward with project's the planning and design phase:
TriStar will begin the planning and design phase for the emergency department by the end of the year.  Design plans and building permits for the emergency department must be approved by the Spring Hill Planning Commission.  Once all necessary approvals and permits have been obtained, site improvements and construction will commence.  During this time, TriStar will conduct a medical staff needs assessment and gauge physician interest for the accompanying medical office building.  Actual construction of the $10 million emergency department will take approximately one year to complete.
TriStar received approval for the facility Nov. 17 after a contentious hearing and public opposition from Maury Regional Medical Center, Williamson Medical Center and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Well, OK then

It took more than two hours for the Tennessee Health Services and Development Agency to hear arguments and make its decision about Centennial Medical Center's proposal for a satellite emergency department in Spring Hill. Part of the time drain, as HSDA Chairman Carl Koella put it, was that the agency heard "a lot of commercials." Among them was a gem from Vanderbilt University Medical Center Vice President for Strategic Development Ron Hill. Hill spent the bulk of his time at the podium "setting the record straight" about VUMC's intentions south of Nashville. When the medical center's plans for a giant physician office complex in Williamson County became public, our pals at 1100 Broadway apparently quoted an HCA official saying they doubted the doc complex was VUMC's only plan for Williamson County, Hill said. "That speculation is simply wrong," he said. "We do not plan an emergency facility or hospital application — ever." (Oh, and the HSDA approved the CON. Read our story at this link.)
