MTSU to buy old medical center site in Murfreesboro
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Middle Tennessee State University has an agreement to purchase the former Middle Tennessee Medical Center site.
According to a news release from the university, the school will pay $11.1 million for the 17.4-acre site. It includes a 115,000-square-foot building, parking for nearly 600 and a large green space that was the site of the old main hospital.
MTSU President Sidney McPhee says the university will use the building for academic purposes, but the school has not made a final decision on which units will occupy the space. The lot will remain green space for the foreseeable future.
The medical center moved in 2010 to a $267 million campus that is more than four times larger than its old location, where the hospital was established in 1927.
