NASHVILLE—Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd along with Community Health Systems Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Wayne T. Smith announced today that CHS will invest $66 million to expand its current operations in Tennessee by constructing a new Shared Services Center in Nashville. Through this expansion, the national healthcare company will create 1,500 new jobs over the next five years.
“We want to thank Community Health Systems for this investment in Middle Tennessee and the new jobs they are creating in Davidson County,” Haslam said. “Companies right now have a choice between not only what states they want to do business in but what countries, and when a company like CHS chooses to expand right here in Tennessee, it speaks volumes to the rest of the world about the high quality business environment we have and our talented workforce.”
“Community Health Systems is a valued partner that’s been supporting the growth and prosperity of this region for decades,” Boyd said. “Thanks to companies like Community Health Systems and their continued investment, Tennessee is a hub for the nation’s healthcare industry. I appreciate Community Health Systems’ decision to once again grow their business here and the new jobs they are creating for our communities.”
