Hospital chain deal is among Nashville's biggest
The nation's largest private hospital chain is close to landing Metro's third-most-generous financial incentive package ever, totaling a projected $66 million, in exchange for filling a prominent midtown eyesore with headquarters offices and bringing 1,750 new jobs to Davidson County. Metro Council is set to consider the arrangement between Nashville-based HCA and Metro, with a vote on a trio of bills outlining tax breaks and incentives key to the proposed office towers. Mayor Karl Dean and HCA officials announced the project in late Sept. to great fanfare for solidifying Nashville as a "healthcare capital," said Dean. The towers will be a $200 million private investment.
