OhioHealth to Open New Albany Medical Campus
Expanded services for the community will strengthen primary care access and improve access for specialty services
OhioHealth is making the investment to expand services in the New Albany community with the OhioHealth New Albany Medical Campus. The new campus will be located at 5150 E. Dublin-Granville Road and will utilize an existing structure, avoiding new construction and allowing OhioHealth to expand care in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
“OhioHealth has proudly provided care in New Albany for over a decade,” said Brian Jepson, President, OhioHealth Central Market. “During this time, we have been able to provide the community with convenient and accessible care through our urgent care, primary care and freestanding emergency department. Now, we are excited to take the next step and strengthen our primary care availability and improve access to other OhioHealth services and specialties for the growing New Albany community.”
Comprehensive outpatient service offerings in the 83,000 square foot building will include:
- Primary Care and Sports Medicine
- Urgent Care
- Retail Pharmacy
- Women’s and Reproductive Health
- Heart & Vascular
- Shelled Space for Future Growth
Other OhioHealth locations in the New Albany area will continue to provide the same great care our patients have become accustomed to from OhioHealth. That includes the recently dedicated OhioHealth Hondros Health Center (more details below), OhioHealth Gahanna Health Center and all OhioHealth Physician Group offices in the area. The Gahanna/New Albany Urgent Care will be relocating to the OhioHealth New Albany Medical Campus in late 2021 with the rest of the facility opening in 2022.
Further, we are excited to announce that our expanded New Albany location will be one of our leading sites for innovation at OhioHealth. The New Albany Medical Campus will give us the opportunity to explore and implement new and exciting ways to provide services that will enhance the patient and provider experience, not only in New Albany, but throughout the entire OhioHealth network.
Plans for design, innovation and clinical programing are underway. Those details will be shared as the project moves forward. The estimated cost of the New Albany Medical Campus is $36.2 million.
OhioHealth Hondros Health Center
OhioHealth is honored to share that John and Linda Hondros have committed a two-million-dollar gift that will enable OhioHealth to expand health and wellness services in the New Albany community. This generous gift is especially appreciated as it comes in the midst of a global pandemic, a time of increased need in communities all throughout central Ohio. The Hondros family was inspired by gratitude for all that OhioHealth and its associates do for patients and communities and will impact the entire system in regards to access, wellness and preventive care.
In recognition of this transformational gift, the OhioHealth Emergency Care – New Albany location now bears the name “Hondros Health Center.” The Hondros family resides in New Albany.
“For more than 15 years we have been blessed to call John and Linda Hondros partners and friends at OhioHealth,” said Karen Morrison, OhioHealth senior vice president of external affairs and president of the OhioHealth Foundation. “As ambassadors for OhioHealth’s culture of quality healthcare, John and Linda exemplify the pillars of excellence, compassion, quality and innovation for which OhioHealth is widely known. I am humbled by this gesture of kindness.”The Hondros family, and the Hondros Family of Companies have been long-time donors of the OhioHealth Foundation and Linda has provided years of service to the OhioHealth Board of Directors. Linda joined the Board in 2006 and over a nine-year tenure led a number of committees, served as Secretary of the Board and chaired the Quality of Care Committee. She has been invaluable in driving a culture of quality and patient safety throughout the organization. Through her leadership OhioHealth has repeatedly received national recognition in quality — including being named as one of the Top 15 Health systems by Truven Health an unprecedented six times. Linda rejoined the board in 2019 and currently serves as the Chair, Foundation Executive Committee.
Since establishing The Ohio Real Estate Preparatory School in 1981, which is now Hondros College, John has been a pillar in the central Ohio community. Hundreds of OhioHealth nurses and other associates have enhanced their skills and education at the Hondros College of Nursing and the Hondros College of Business. Perhaps most important to John and Linda, the Hondros Family of Companies has been a CEO Magazine Top Workplace four of the last five years.
“We wanted to make this donation to OhioHealth in honor of the tremendous caregivers across the system,” said John and Linda Hondros. “Wellness and preventive care are the cornerstones of a healthy life and we are thrilled this donation will be earmarked for increased access to these services throughout the OhioHealth system.”
