Practice to Make $120 Million Investment in State-of-the-Art Cancer Care Center

Nashville, TN – July 17, 2023 –Tennessee Oncology, one of the largest oncology practices in the country, announced it is constructing a new flagship cancer care center in downtown Nashville. The state-of-the-art center, which will encompass 200,000 square feet, represents a significant investment of more than $120 million toward advancing cancer care and research throughout Tennessee.

“We are excited to build a state-of-the-art cancer center in Nashville and expand our ability to care for patients throughout Tennessee,” said Natalie Dickson, MD, President, and Chief Strategy Officer of Tennessee Oncology. “There is enormous innovation in cancer care bringing patients more diagnostic and treatment options than ever before. By making this significant investment in a new cancer center, our physicians and staff are demonstrating our commitment to ensure patients in Tennessee continue to have access to the most cutting-edge treatments available anywhere in the world.”

The medical facility and office building will be located at 322 22nd Avenue North between Centennial Medical Center and Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown. The building will house medical oncology, infusion, imaging, pharmacy, and other related clinical services. The building, which includes three levels of parking below ground and five main floors above ground, will also house the corporate headquarters of Tennessee Oncology’s affiliated management company, OneOncology.

“This project underscores our commitment to improve outcomes and enhance our patients’ experience,” said Jeff Patton, MD, Executive Chair of the board of Tennessee Oncology and CEO of OneOncology. “We are excited about the impact this investment will have on the lives of cancer patients in Nashville and beyond.”

Tennessee Oncology has partnered with Birmingham, Alabama-based  Johnson Healthcare Real Estate for the development and management of the project. The firms have collaborated in the past including the development of the Seton Building on the campus of Ascension Rutherford. “We are proud to continue to serve Tennessee Oncology with the delivery of world-class cancer care facilities to their physicians, staff, and patients,” said Perry White, Principal and Chief Operating Officer.

Nashville-based Gresham Smith is providing engineering and design services. The Nashville office of Turner Construction is the general contractor. Financing for the project is being provided by Truist Bank.

Demolition and site work has commenced on the project. Completion is expected in the summer of 2025. Tennessee Oncology will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on July 28 at 4 PM.
