Midtown Modernization Project
Expanding on our 100-year legacy
We are continuing to build on a legacy of over 100 years. Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital, then known as Protestant Hospital, opened in 1920. We are one of Nashville's first hospitals located in a two-building facility on a 10.5-acre plot. A century later, we are still serving the Nashville and Middle Tennessee communities.
In the next three years, the Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown campus will see more than $300 million in campus investments. We plan to complete clinical and capital improvements to modernize the campus by the end of 2023. Changes you will see across our Midtown campus are designed by our physicians, caregivers and associates to offer an elevated experience.
This investment will shape the future of healthcare in our Nashville community and Middle Tennessee. Ascension Saint Thomas will pilot state-of-the-art technology that will set the new standard for Ascension ministries nationally. The enhancements will distinguish our clinical development programs as technologically advanced. It will offer a unique approach to urban design that incorporates nature into our campus landscape. The designs will provide easier access to our campus with simplified parking and pedestrian access.
The transformations will begin with construction on the corner of 21st Avenue North and Patterson Avenue. Construction will include a surgery and critical care tower, new expansions and enhancements to the Hospital for Women, a new Surgery Center for Women, Rehabilitation Hospital, a modern medical office building and a state-of-the-art cancer center. By 2023, Church Street will include a new entrance for the Hospital for Women and a medical office building.
