Expansion Planned for OhioHealth Pickerington Medical Campus
Plans include building a hospital on 30+ acres of undeveloped land
OhioHealth is excited to announce that we are making the investment to expand OhioHealth Pickerington Medical Campus – increasing access to additional healthcare services – by converting it into a hospital, adding inpatient beds and new services. The expansion will be built on over 30 acres of undeveloped land on-site, expanding from the northern side of the current campus.
“From the moment we broke ground, we knew the Pickerington Medical Campus was only the beginning of our commitment to Pickerington and nearby communities,” said Kevin Lutz, DPM, president, OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital and accountable executive for the Westerville and Pickerington Medical Campuses and Freestanding Emergency Department Network. “Since our opening in 2015, we have expanded to open a Short Stay Unit, purchased the adjacent medical office building, created strong partnerships with local schools, actively participate in the Chamber and sponsor local events.”
“As we continue to learn more about the healthcare needs of the community, we recognize there are additional services we could provide and now is the time to strengthen and deepen our commitment,” said Dr. Lutz.
OhioHealth is looking forward to again working with the City of Pickerington to ensure the evolving needs of the community are met in this expansion. Early programming and design is currently underway and details such as services, bed count, square footage and cost will be available at the conclusion of that process. Construction is planned to start this year, with a projected opening date of 2023.
OhioHealth plans to keep all current services on the campus in operation for the duration of the construction, including the Pickerington Emergency Care Center, which has become one of the busiest freestanding emergency departments in the OhioHealth system.
