OhioHealth to invest $275M in campus upgrades

Columbus-based OhioHealth plans to invest up to $275 million to improve several of its facilities in the state, according to the Mansfield News Journal.

The upgrades include construction of a new primary care facility and corporate administration building as well as improvements to the emergency department at OhioHealth Shelby Hospital and a bed-privatization effort at Marion (Ohio) General Hospital.

"Our objective is to provide the right level of care as close to the patient as possible," Jeffery Alexander, vice president-treasury for OhioHealth told the Mansfield News Journal. "Rather than building one large, new hospital or new tower, there are a number of smaller projects that will help execute our strategy."

The upgrades will be financed through hospital revenue bonds issued by Franklin County.
