Vanderbilt, HCA seek permits for cancer center
The Tennessean, May 1, 2008
Nashville-based Vanderbilt University has filed a request for a $7.39 million, 8,179-square-foot stand-alone radiation therapy center with equipment to deliver radiation treatment for cancer patients. HCA's TriStar Health System has also filed plans for a $7.5 million radiation therapy department with similar equipment at its proposed Spring Hill, TN, Hospital, asking that its application be reviewed simultaneously with Vanderbilt's. The Tennessee Health Services and Development Agency will now decide whether both, one of the two, or neither is needed in the community that straddles Williamson and Maury counties.
