The Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, US, is set to lease a new building for non-clinical offices and support functions.
Employees are expected to start using the 152,000ft2 property in early 2012.
The builiding, located in the Mount Auburn neighborhood, was constructed in 1959 as the headquarters for Ohio National Life Insurance. It was later purchased by Hamilton County.
Project’s developer Al Neyer will purchase the property from Hamilton County and begin renovation in February 2012, hospital officials said.
PNC Bank has provided financing for the project.
The Christ Hospital president and CEO Susan Croushore said that many of the hospital’s non-clinical and support functions could be provided more efficiently at a location separate from the hospital.

"We have plans to create a sustainable office environment that will be a productive place to work, inspiring our colleagues to further our mission of providing the finest patient experience," Croushore said.
Hamilton County board of commissioner president Greg Hartmann said the project will secure jobs.
"By selling and restoring this building for The Christ Hospital, we are maximising a county asset and providing an ideal solution for the hospital’s increasing growth requirements," Hartmann added.
The Christ Hospital offers medical, surgical and testing services at its main campus just north of Downtown Cincinnati, and at other outpatient and physician practice locations throughout Greater Cincinnati.
