Hospital competition and an aging population
Earlier this month, local hospital network TriStar Health announced a big expansion plan for its midtown campus, TriStar Centennial.
Included in the project is a $123.7 million plan to add four floors and a joint replacement center to the HCA Healthcare-owned hospital, expected to open early next year.
In announcing the project, TriStar representatives said the investments will allow the hospital network to meet the needs of the growing communities its hospitals serve.
Here are two other reasons the hospital network may be investing in orthopedics specifically, and hospital projects in general.
