Nashville's Role in Healthcare

The more than 300 healthcare companies that operate from Nashville on a multi-state, national or international basis make the industry the largest and fastest growing sector in the Nashville economy. Nashville hospital management companies manage over 60 percent of all the for-profit hospital beds in America. Nashville also has a significant presence in ambulatory and outpatient surgery, dialysis, disease management, clinical research, hospital management support services and healthcare information technology.

Globally, healthcare companies headquartered in Nashville generate more than $70 billion of revenue and employ more than 400,000 people. Eighteen of these companies are publicly traded.  Among that number are major hospital management companies like HCA, Community Health Systems, LifePoint Hospitals and Vanguard Health Systems, as well many other types of healthcare companies such as HealthSpring Inc., a $5 billion revenue, rapidly growing Medicare Advantage health plan, and AmSurg Corp, with more than 200 ambulatory surgery centers nationwide.
