New $267 million Hospital in Murfreesboro,TN

In a special ceremonial dinner, shortly before 7:00 o’clock Tuesday evening (6/15/2010) Middle Tennessee Medical Center’s President and CEO Gordon Ferguson received the keys to the 550,000 square foot hospital. The event was held in the spacious public area when you enter the massive new complex on Medical Center Parkway. Ferguson said, “We are so proud of our staff. Between now and October 2nd, they will become familiar with this new campus while maintaining their regular duties at the old hospital.”

He commented that over the next two and a half months, the hospital will be stocked with supplies and the final decorating touches will be made. Each floor will be easily identified for the public with a photographic mural depicting local history. The historians at Shacklett’s Photography have been working with decorators to create those pieces. In addition, another group has been working with local artists whose inspirationally themed works will be placed throughout the medical center. Ferguson noted, “Our emphasis is to promote local history and local artisans.”

The $267-million state-of-the-art hospital includes over $32-million in high-tech medical technology and $2-million in kitchen equipment.
