HCA expansion adding jobs, towers in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Health care company HCA is relocating the corporate headquarters of two of its business units to midtown Nashville, making possible one of the largest commercial office developments in the city's history.

Parallon Business Solutions and the Sarah Cannon Research Institute will anchor two new high-rise office buildings to be constructed on a vacant property on the city's West End Avenue.

The development represents a $200 million investment in Nashville by the developer.

The two companies are expected to employ nearly 2,000 workers within five years. That figure will about double their current work force, with average salaries of $85,000-$90,000.

Gov. Bill Haslam said at the Thursday announcement the investment will solidify Nashville's reputation as a health care leader and a great place to do business.
