Centennial Medical Center officials expect to start construction in the spring on a free-standing emergency medical facility that will be about 20,000 square feet bigger than originally planned. The initial plans for the ER came to Spring Hill in June 2010, roughly nine months after a Davidson County Chancery Court ruling overturned approval of a 56-bed hospital on the same property off Kedron Road, which was given by the state Health Services Development Agency. For now, Centennial officials are focusing on the site plan for the ER, which the Spring Hill Planning Commission will review in December.
Herron said they are a few months away from having the architectural plan complete. With that, and with all the required city approvals, construction could start in April or May.
The facility could open in the first quarter of 2013, Herron said. The ER would account for 10,000 square feet on the first floor. A 5,000-square-foot adjoining building will house physicians’ offices. The rest of the space will be for primary- and specialty-care doctors.
