Exciting News! $400 million investment in healthcare services, emergency, trauma, and critical care in downtown Columbus
To our valued Fire and EMS Partners:
OhioHealth has exciting news to share about a major investment in downtown Columbus, and I want you to be among the first to know. Attached is the president’s message with details that went out to our associates earlier. We’ll be sharing this message with the media later today.
Grant has served our downtown community for more than 100 years. With this $400 million investment, we’ll be able to serve our growing community for the next 100 years and beyond. This work will create the medical campus downtown Columbus needs and deserves.
We’re incredibly excited for the future of Grant, and we thank you for your support and partnership as we start this journey.
