Leaders of Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) announced the completion of the acquisition of Tennova Healthcare-Lebanon, a two-campus facility licensed for 245 beds, from subsidiaries of Community Health Systems, Inc. (CHS). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The hospital, which is the sole provider of both inpatient and outpatient medical services in Wilson County, will be known as Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital (VWCH). In Lebanon, the main campus of VWCH is located at 1411 West Baddour Parkway, while the hospital’s second campus, which provides behavioral health and physical rehabilitation services, is located at 500 Park Avenue. The facility at West Baddour Parkway has a floor of undeveloped shell space that can be built out to meet future needs.
VUMC’s acquisition includes not only the two-campus hospital facilities but also related physician clinic operations and outpatient services that now bear the Vanderbilt name including: Vanderbilt Surgery Center, Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center, Vanderbilt Primary Care, Vanderbilt Primary Care Walk-In, and Vanderbilt Gastroenterology. These services join an array of other Vanderbilt Health clinics already available in Wilson County.
Prior to this acquisition, the Vanderbilt Health system included four hospitals and 137 adult and pediatric clinics located throughout Tennessee, Southern Kentucky, and Northern Alabama that served approximately 2.3 million individuals in the most recent fiscal year. Along with joining the Vanderbilt Health system of hospitals and clinics, VWCH is also the newest member of the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network, a family of hospitals and health care providers that includes 69 hospital locations, 6,000-plus clinical professionals, and nearly 120 quick-care options located across six states.
Vanderbilt University Medical Center is one of the largest academic medical centers in the Southeast, and is the primary resource for specialty and primary care in hundreds of adult and pediatric specialties for consumers throughout Tennessee and the Mid-South. The Medical Center is the region’s locus of postgraduate medical education, with over 1,000 residents and fellows training in more than 100 specialty areas. Through the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network, the center is working with over 60 hospitals and 5,000 clinicians across Tennessee and five neighboring states to share best practices and bring value-driven and cost-effective health care to the Mid-South.
