Vanderbilt University Medical Center (Nashville, Tenn.) is planning an expansion of Vanderbilt University Hospital (VUH) in Nashville.

The project will build a new 15-level, 470,000-square-foot inpatient tower atop an existing parking structure. The facility will house 180 inpatient beds, 10 operating rooms (ORs), radiology services, multiple specialty clinics, a spacious lobby, and new administrative office space.

Blair, Mui + Dowd (New York) will serve as the architect for the project, which is scheduled to kick off this summer.
