NASHVILLE, Tenn., (June 14, 2013) – AMSURG Corp. (NASDAQ: AMSG) broke ground today on the company’s new 110,000 square foot headquarters. Community and government officials were in attendance for the official groundbreaking ceremony, along with more than 300 local employees, with keynote speeches provided by Mayor Karl Dean, AMSURG CEO Chris Holden, John Eakin of Eakin Partners and Ralph Schulz, president of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce.
AMSURG’s Nashville headquarters is currently split between two buildings in the Burton Hills office park located in Green Hills. In seeking to consolidate its headquarters and provide room for growth, the company opted to remain in Nashville, which has emerged as a national hub for the healthcare industry.
“Nashville is where healthcare works. This new headquarters solidifies our commitment to being surrounded by the best healthcare companies and employee talent in the country,” said Holden. “It also enables us to elevate teamwork to a new level, and that will mean even greater success for our employees and our partner physicians, and even better service to our patients.”
“With this groundbreaking, Nashville is retaining good headquarters jobs in the largest industry for our city’s economy,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “This is yet another vote of confidence in Nashville’s vitality. I commend AMSURG for choosing infill development in a region of the city where office space is in high demand and for all it does as an engaged corporate citizen in our community.”
The new headquarters, designed by Hastings Architecture Associates, will house the company’s 350 Nashville employees on three floors and will sit on over two acres in the last remaining parcel of the Burton Hills office park. The Class A office facility will be known as Burton Hills 6 and will be located at 1A Burton Hills Blvd. AMSURG expects to move into its new headquarters in early 2015.
Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, AMSURG Corp. (AMSG) acquires, develops and operates ambulatory surgery centers in partnership with physicians. At December 31, 2012, AMSURG owned and operated 240 centers. By focusing on the delivery of high quality, low cost surgery services that create high patient and physician satisfaction, AMSURG Corp. creates value for the three constituencies involved in every surgical procedure: the patient, the physician and the payor.
