Nashville-based CereCore, a subsidiary of HCA Healthcare Inc., has a new headquarters.
The health-tech company moved its corporate offices to 1100 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Suite 1700 inside the Capitol View development, effective Feb. 1, according to a news release.
Capitol View is home to several other HCA subsidiaries, including HealthTrust, Parallon and Sarah Cannon.
Tenants across the country are rethinking their office needs, wondering if they need less or more office space in the future, due to new health guidelines, the normalization of remote work and potential legal liabilities as workers return to the office. Change Healthcare was the first notable, and certainly largest, Nashville employer to announce a permanent move of a significant portion of its workforce to a virtual setting since the pandemic began.
It’s not immediately clear how many CereCore employees will be working out of its new 28,022 square foot headquarters, although the company said the move is in part aimed at accommodating growth.
“The pandemic has highlighted the change in the locations and the way we work. These changes gave us an opportunity to create space that is more visible and aligns with our new working models,” Curtis Watkins, CEO of CereCore, said in the release. “The move also made it feasible to outfit our space to better accommodate our customers and employees. When it is safe to do so, we look forward to offering a centrally-located, welcoming and functional workspace that reflects how we deliver IT services today.”
CereCore, formerly Parallon Technology Solutions, provides electronic health record implementation, IT consulting services and technical staffing, among other services, to hospitals, outpatient facilities and physician groups. The company employed more than 450 people in 2019, according to a news release from that year, having implemented electronic health record systems in more than 300 facilities.
HCA (NYSE: HCA) is Nashville’s largest publicly traded company and the nation’s biggest hospital operator, with $51.5 billion of revenue in 2020.
