Tanner Establishing New Resource Center in Carrollton

Former Greenway property will be used for offices, education, innovation

Tanner Health is making moves to improve access to care and health literacy as it begins to occupy the   former Greenway Health building off Hays Mill Road in Carrollton.

The move allows Tanner to free-up needed space on its Carrollton campus so it can move forward with more clinical expansion.

“There are a lot of nonclinical and support staff located on the Carrollton campus,” said Greg Schulenburg, executive vice president and chief administrative officer for Tanner. “These add to traffic on our Carrollton campus, take up parking spaces and occupy square feet that we could better use as acute care and clinical space.”

The newly acquired 66,000-square-foot building is comprised of office space, conference rooms and collaboration areas. It also has a full cafeteria and an employee resource center.

Along with moving people off its flagship campus in Carrollton, Tanner Resource Center will serve as another destination for health in the region, with space for educational programs from Tanner’s Get Healthy, Live Well.

The facility will also house Tanner’s Healthliant Innovation Center, with its mission to cultivate creativity and foster collaboration to overcome obstacles in accessing care and developing medical technologies worldwide through budding technologies like artificial intelligence.

The entire property is about seven acres. The building was constructed in 2012, and Tanner closed on the property in October 2023.

Tanner has already begun locating some staff to the resource center, including administration for the health system and Tanner Medical Group, as well as Tanner Home Health and Tanner Hospice Care.

It’s the latest effort the healthcare organization has made to improve access and continue expanding services. Tanner also moved staff previously when it purchased a former bank building on Cedar Street in Carrollton, relocating its career services and learning and development staff, as well as Tanner Medical Foundation.

Some services moved across Dixie Street from the hospital with the 2019 construction of the 130,000-square foot Tanner Health Pavilion, including clinical space for Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists and the John and Barbara Tanner Cardiac Rehab Center.

“We were fortunate that we could acquire a property that’s been vacant for three years and breathe new life into it, as well as use it as a means to improve patient access at our Carrollton facility.” said Loy Howard, president and CEO of Tanner Health. “It’s brick-and-mortar evidence that Tanner is strong, thriving, and continuing to create jobs and generate economic development for our region.”
