Add this to the nearly $700 million Vandy already has under construction. Word is that they're pushing $2 billion in construction over the next five years.

They're already building three towers (another one just completed) and the commons area at Peabody. That's a beautiful dorm facility... and huge!

Incredible! The building that's going on there never seems to stop, and seems to keep accelerating. Does anyone know how they're funding all of this? From the endowment? From contributions? Whatever it is, they must be receiving huge amounts of money.

Well...I just broke my leg really badly in August and had surgery to reconstruct my tibia at Vandy. So far, my bills have been about $80,000. Does that answer your questions? :mellow:

Indeed, the cost of care has shot up. Of course, we're talking about Vandy here, and it wasn't too long ago that the University (as distinguished from the Medical Center/School) was pulling in more than $1 billion for certain capital campaigns. That's apart from the endowment. I'm sure with all those rich doctors out there, that VUMC has little problem getting their share.

FYI on this project. The KFC is now closed and I would say the Mapco will be closed very soon as this project is suppose to start next month.

Here is an small article from the Tennessean on the Vanderbilt expansion. They closed on the gas station land.

Vanderbilt's latest purchase clears way for expansion

Vanderbilt Medical Center has closed a deal for the gas station at 21st Avenue South and Children's Way as part of a planned expansion.

The hospital paid a private trust about $2.5 million for the Mapco at 1507 21st Ave. S. The deal follows the purchase in October of a neighboring KFC restaurant.

This latest transaction clears the way for Vanderbilt to build a $244 million addition to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital. The expansion is expected to break ground next year and be completed by 2012.
