Oracle Health moving into Nashville as part of $1.35B project

Oracle Health will soon be right in the middle of healthcare's American "mecca" when its parent company opens a new $1.35 billion facility in Nashville, Tenn., the Nashville Business Journal reported.

Oracle Health held a private meet-and-greet with Nashville-area hospital and health system executives Aug. 2, pledging to hold a national healthcare conference in the city next year, according to the Aug. 8 story.

"They generally expressed enthusiasm about Nashville — given its unique attributes, the organizations that are here, the talent and pipeline that's here — as being a major focal point for Oracle Health," Fahad Tahir, president and CEO of Nashville-based Ascension Saint Thomas, told the news outlet.

Oracle revealed plans for the riverfront development in 2021, a year before it purchased EHR vendor Cerner for $28.4 billion. The software giant has promised 8,500 jobs in Nashville by 2031.

Attendees at the gathering included David Feinberg, MD, chairman of Oracle Health, and Seema Verna, the former CMS administrator who is now a senior vice president and general manager at Oracle, the Business Journal reported. In a video from the event posted to his LinkedIn page, Dr. Feinberg called Nashville "a mecca of healthcare in the United States."

"There's no shortage of enthusiasm, talent and leadership in Nashville's healthcare scene," he posted. "It was great spending the evening here discussing Oracle Health's commitment to improving every part of the healthcare experience — from intake to billing, and everything in between."
