(From the July 2014 Issue of MedStat)
Nationwide Children’s has announced plans for two new facilities near its downtown campus to accommodate growth in patient services. Both new buildings will help to decompress parking and current outpatient clinics which have outgrown their available space on the hospital’s campus. Moving selected services off of the main campus will allow them to expand, as well as accommodate growth by other hospital programs in the spaces they vacate. Construction is slated to begin on the Livingston Avenue Ambulatory Building in January 2015 on the northeast corner of East Livingston Avenue and South Grant Avenue. Tentative plans call for this building to house ambulatory services such as primary care, dental, behavioral health and the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition. Also, ground will be broken late 2014 for a Faculty Office Building on the southeast corner of Livingston Avenue and Parsons Avenue. This facility will house academic offices that will be relocated from the hospital’s main campus to accommodate growth in the medical staff.
