Via Columbus Community Hospital:
Columbus Community Hospital is expanding its campus with the addition of a new surgery center. The $18.6 million expansion will include a new surgery center, remodeling of the current registration, coffee shop, gift shop, medical imaging, and clinic areas, and provide a “main street” connection to hospital services and clinics on the campus.
The two-story, 35,000-square-foot addition will be built onto the southwest side of the hospital at 1515 Park Avenue. The construction and remodeling will be done in seven phases, with the first phase, the surgery center, to be completed in the spring of 2015. Remodeling of the medical imaging, gift shop, registration, coffee shop, and clinic areas will begin in 2015, with tentative completion dates to land in the summer and fall of 2015.
“After hearing from our community and physician partners, we began the planning process for the new surgery center in order to meet space requirements for new technology, while increasing patient privacy and improving ease of navigation throughout our facility,” said John Russell, President and CEO of Columbus Community Hospital.
Vogel Brothers Building Company is serving as the general contractor for the project, with Flad Architects as the architectural firm and KJWW as the engineering firm. Lending services are being provided by First Business Bank.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place June 10 at Columbus Community Hospital. The hospital's Wellness Walkway, located near the construction site, will be closed for the duration of the project and reopen in the summer of 2015.
