20 Nov Loden Vision Breaks Ground for New Corporate Headquarters and Clinic in Goodlettsville
GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. — Nov. 19, 2014 – Ground was broken at the City of Goodlettsville’s front door today for a new Loden Vision Centers corporate headquarters and medical facility that will bring new services to the area.
Flanked by city officials and others, Dr. James C. Loden and Dr. Terrence Doherty turned the earth for the first of two buildings Crain Construction, Inc. is building for Loden Vision Centers at 520 Rivergate Parkway in Goodlettsville.
When completed Fall of 2015, the two-story, 44,000-square-foot structure will house Loden Enterprises and the Loden Vision Centers headquarters featuring an ophthalmology clinic, a LASIK suite and other services, all with state-of-the-art equipment. The building will also feature a two-story lobby and covered drop-off area at the main entrance for patient convenience.
“Our mission is to provide the most advanced technology and best possible care to our patients,” said Dr. Loden, founder/president of Loden Vision Centers and a second generation ophthalmologist. “This new campus will enable us to achieve our mission and also create a corporate home for 115 employees. We’re also proud to put the Loden Vision brand on the gateway to Goodlettsville.”
Loden Vision currently has five locations in Nashville, Green Hills, Goodlettsville, Gallatin and Paris, Tenn. During the next several years, Loden Vision Centers expects to add approximately 45 new positions.
“The decision of Dr. Loden and his team to build their new ‘world class’ vision center and administrative offices in Goodlettsville is phenomenal,” said Goodlettsville City Manager Tim Ellis. “As in any community top quality health services is key to the quality of life and with the construction of this new facility that bar has definitely been raised in Goodlettsville.”
Crain Construction is the general contractor and construction company for the project designed by STG Design.
“We’re honored to build the first corporate headquarters for this company that has delivered high-quality vision care for more than 45 years,” said Michael Rankin, president of Crain Construction.
Construction on the second building for the campus will begin about six months after the first building is completed.
