Nationwide Children’s Hospital is set to construct two new facilities with an investment of $130m, in a bid to accommodate growth in patient services.
Located in Columbus, Ohio, the hospital plans to begin construction on the Livingston Ambulatory Centre in February 2015.
Construction is planned for the northeast corner of East Livingston Avenue and South Grant Avenue on ten acres of property, purchased from Columbus City Schools (CCS).
The six-storey facility will include 200,000ft² of space and involves an investment of $85m.
The building will house ambulatory services such as primary care, dental services, behavioural health, dermatology, adolescent medicine, sports rehabilitation, the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition and other rotating clinics.
In addition, the hospital started construction on a faculty office building on the southeast corner of Livingston Avenue and Parsons Avenue.
The six-storey office building will span 150,000ft² and involves an investment of $45m. It will include academic offices, which will be relocated from the hospital’s main campus to accommodate growth for medical staff.
A tunnel under Livingston Avenue will provide access to the new building from the main campus.
