CEO, execs debate relocating Nashville General Hospital

Leaders at Nashville (Tenn.) General Hospital have reportedly begun looking to relocate the hospital once its current lease expires in 2024, according to Nashville Scene.

Nashville General CEO Joseph Webb told the publication no decisions have been made, but that his team aims to negotiate a new lease deal with Nashville-based Meharry Medical College that includes capital improvements.

He said if the two organizations cannot negotiate a deal, Nashville General executives will look elsewhere — a search that has already begun. The hospital's latest business plan, which was approved by the board in December 2018, indicates the Nashville General Hospital Foundation has begun reviewing existing healthcare facilities and land options, but that none of the scouted locations have met their needs, the report states.

Mr. Webb declined to tell Nashville Scene which existing facilities are under consideration for a potential move.

While a review of potential facilities is underway, Mr. Webb said he is most interested in negotiating a new lease agreement with Meharry that would to include renovations, according to the report.
