Jerry Taylor Quoted in Nashville Business Journal on TriStar and St. Thomas Dispute
Nashville, TN. - On March 27, 2015, the Nashville Business Journal published an article about the TriStar and St. Thomas dispute over building satellite emergency departments in the zip code 37027, including commentary from Burr & Forman attorney Jerry Taylor, who represented TriStar. That zip code, which encompasses the southern edge of Davidson County and stretches south into affluent Williamson County, was where both TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center and Saint Thomas Midtown hoped to build new satellite emergency departments. Both argued their sites were chosen out of a combination of necessity, convenience and logic, and both claimed their facilities would serve current patients, not poach them from other hospitals, but the other hospitals disagreed. Taylor said the 37027 question was a "red herring." In the end, the THSDA ultimately ruled to deny both applications.
