Ohio State medical facility would be biggest development in Powell history

The Powell City Council “is considering an ordinance to approve an ambulatory-care” outpatient facility proposed by The Ohio State University that “is expected to employ up to 500 people and have a payroll of up to $50 million in its first phase,” The Columbus Dispatch reports. The project would be “the biggest development in the city’s history” and the city’s largest employer, according to the article. The first phase would include a five-story, 150,000-square-foot building and a two-story, 56,000-square-foot building, housing the ambulatory-care center, diagnostic services, house specialty care and offices for “primary-care physicians, internists and mental-health professionals.” The second phase “would add 216,000 square feet and could include a ‘micro-hospital.’” For more, read the full article.
