A senior care facility will likely soon expand the offerings of Baptist Memorial Hospital-Collierville.

Collierville’s Planning Commission favored a preliminary site plan for the project Thursday, Jan. 5. Baptist looks to add a 102,443-square-foot building north of Poplar Avenue and east of Shea Road.

The facility will include assisted living, memory care and behavioral health services.

When complete, it’s expected to generate $4 million in wages for 70 employees.

The project was lightly discussed and passed without opposition in a meeting that lasted less than 20 minutes. The Planning Commission saw the project and heard a long presentation from NHC in July when it recommended rezoning of 10.3 acres. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the rezoning from low-density residential to medical professional office in August.
