From the 7/21/05 Dublin Villager:


Work begins on OhioHealth's future $130M hospital
Thursday, July 21, 2005
By MICHAEL RACEY
Villager Staff Writer


OhioHealth was expected to break ground on its future hospital in Dublin this morning (July 21).  The hospital's name was to be announced during a ceremony at the site.  Site work for the future 300,000-square-foot complex north of U.S. 33 is under way. Cheryl Herbert, president of the future facility, was expected to announce the hospital's name from a list of six finalists.

Last month, the public and OhioHealth employees voted online for their favorite name from this list: Avery, Avery Methodist, Hopewell, Hopewell Methodist, Dublin or Dublin Methodist. OhioHealth is spending $130-million on its newest facility and expects it to be open by late fall 2007.

Villager Staff Writer

 
In about three years, Dublin will have its own hospital, to be called Dublin Methodist Hospital.  Construction is under way on the OhioHealth facility, which is set to open in late fall of 2007 on 89 acres north of U.S. 33, behind the Avery Square Shopping Center.  The choice of the name was made from a list of six provided for online voting during the month of June and announced at a groundbreaking ceremony held late last week.

From Columbus Business First, 9/6/05:

Dublin making Third Frontier link

With help from a $500,000 state capital grant, the city of Dublin will connect into the Third Frontier Network to form the system's first local research pipeline.  The Central Ohio Research Network will connect Dublin's government, schools and businesses to the 1,600-mile web of high-speed wiring that links Ohio colleges and universities, research labs and hospitals.

Some benefits to Dublin include a connection between Battelle Memorial Institute's Dublin facility and its King Avenue headquarters.  McDaniel said it will be an asset to the city's plans for the planned Central Ohio Innovation Center, a 1,500-acre city plan that includes a 200-acre technology park and an OhioHealth hospital.

OSU commits to anchor Dublin research park
Jeff Bell
Business First


A nonprofit corporation that supports Ohio State University Medical Center is closing in on a development deal to make heath care and biomedical research a cornerstone of Dublin's newly created research park.  Under a city proposal that would extend land and other improvements to the project, OSU would become the first anchor tenant for Dublin's Central Ohio Innovation Center off Route 33.

The development pact, which will be outlined for the public at a Sept. 19 City Council session, is expected to include the city donating 92 acres at the research park to UMC Partners, an independent commercial development arm of OSU Medical Center.  Dublin this year spent $7.2 million to acquire the land, the first part of what it hopes will develop into a 200-acre campus.

Memorial Hospital digs in for clash with Dublin rival
Jeff Bell, Business First

Memorial Hospital of Union County administrator Nancy Conklin knows exactly how long it takes to drive from Marysville to the OhioHealth hospital under construction in Dublin.  "Fourteen minutes," said Conklin, Memorial's vice president of marketing and development.  Such a concise clocking shows she and others at Marysville's 107-bed community hospital are already bracing for the arrival of OhioHealth's Dublin Methodist Hospital two years from now. They see it as a competitor for patients from the Marysville area, the heart of Memorial's service area.

Breakthrough cancer therapy part of OSU plan for Dublin park
Jeff Bell
Business First


A facility that would provide the next generation of cancer treatments would be one of the anchors of an Ohio State University Medical Center project at Dublin's new research park.  OSU would have the first site in North America to use a new particle therapy to treat cancer patients, university President Karen Holbrook said Thursday, when she outlined the project during her annual State of the University address at the Wexner Center.

The project, she said, will be a partnership between "private entities" and UMC Partners, the independent commercial development arm of OSU Medical Center.  Ohio State officials have declined to identify companies involved in the joint venture, saying public disclosure would jeopardize negotiations.  But Business First has learned the cost of the particle therapy equipment and facility could be more than $150 million.

Sneak peek
Mockups offer glimpse of hospital's rooms
 
By LIN RICE

Employees of OhioHealth were given a chance to tour several mockups of patient rooms for Dublin Methodist Hospital Monday.  OhioHealth will host a community open house to exhibit the room mockups from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.  Employees filtered through the three mock patient rooms from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., smiling in approval at the wood-paneled floors and natural lighting.  The rooms were set up in a warehouse space, much like a movie set, near the hospital construction site at U.S. Route 33 and Avery-Muirfield Drive.

Dublin Methodist Hospital is scheduled to open in October 2007.  The 325,0000-square-foot, $130-million hospital will hold 94 beds, and could expand to as many as 300 beds.  The hospital is being built on 86.3 acres on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive, by Elford Construction and Gilbane Building Co.  Dublin Methodist Hospital will be OhioHealth's fifth core hospital, and will be the first full-service facility built in Central Ohio in more than 20 years.

New tech park construction moving quickly
Center will include one-of-a-kind particle-therapy/research facility

Thursday, January 12, 2006
By MICHAEL RACEY
Villager Staff Writer


Plans are moving along quickly for Dublin's tech park -- the Central Ohio Innovation Center -- and its anchor, the Ohio State University Health and Innovation Park.  Dublin City Council was presented with updates on both projects at its first meeting of the year on Monday night.  "The planning is being pushed by a user that will be one of a kind in North America," said Ben Hale Jr., an attorney for UMC Partners, the nonprofit enterprise group for the Ohio State University Medical Center.  Part of the UMC Partners' plans are to build a 120,000-square-foot particle-therapy facility for cancer research and treatment -- a facility that does not exist anywhere else on the continent, Hale said.

Workers install highest beam of Dublin's new hospital
By LIN RICE

More than two dozen people donned white hard hats and tramped through the mud, grit and rain Thursday to view the placement of the highest structural beam of Dublin Methodist Hospital.  Hospital President Cheryl Herbert was on hand to christen the beam, as she and members of the construction crew followed the tradition of signing their names on the beam before a crane hoisted it into place.  In another traditional "topping-off" ceremony measure, workers secured an American flag and a small pine tree to the top of the beam.

OhioHealth estimates its new hospital will be ready to open by fall 2007. Elford Construction and Gilbane Building Co. began construction of the $130 million hospital July 22 on 86.3 acres on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive in Dublin.  The 325,000-square-foot structure is located on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive, and will house 94 private patient rooms. It can be expanded to accomodate up to 300 rooms with future construction.

SITE PLAN: This is a preliminary site plan for Ohio State University's Health & Innovation Center, a 301,000-square-foot, $200-million facility featuring a James Care cancer center, an imaging hub and a particle-therapy treatment center. The architect for the project is NBBJ.

OSU health center rezoning approved
Unanimous OK clears way for work to start

Thursday, March 23, 2006

Villager Staff Writer
 

Dublin City Council Monday night unanimously approved rezoning the 111-acre Ohio State University Health & Innovation Center site within the 1,500-acre Central Ohio Innovation Center.  Approval, which came without questions or comments, clears the way for work to begin on the project, likely sometime this summer, according to Ben Hale Jr., an attorney representing UMC Partners, a nonprofit development group for OSU's Medical Center.

The 301,000-square-foot facility and site will cost an estimated $200-million and will house three health-care components in one building, according to officials for UMC Partners.  Dublin is donating $7-million worth of land to UMC Partners for the project and will spend more than $20-million on renovating and expanding the interchange of U.S. Route 33 and Post Road as the gateway to the tech park and center.

Dublin tech park lands $750K earmark
Business First of Columbus - 2:08 PM EDT Tuesday
 
Dublin's Central Ohio Innovation Center is slated to get $750,000 from the fiscal 2007 energy and water development appropriations bill passed by the House Appropriations Committee.  The money will go toward water and sewer infrastructure improvements at the proposed 1,500-acre tech park.  The spending bill still needs to pass the whole House of Representatives and Senate.

Congresswoman Deborah Pryce (R-Upper Arlington) and Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-Genoa Township) requested the funding.  Construction of the tech park along Route 33 in Dublin is scheduled to begin by the end of the year.  Dublin is spending about $25 million in construction and improvements to roads near the site.

Dublin has secured $750,000 in federal money for its tech park, the Central Ohio Innovation Center.  The funds are part of the 2007 U.S. energy and water appropriations bill.  They will help Dublin pay for necessary water- and sewer-system installations and improvements in the tech park -- a 1,500-acre site on the city's western edge.  Dublin is planning on spending more than $22-million to reconstruct the intersection of U.S. 33 and state Route 161.  It will serve as the gateway to the park.  Construction should begin next year.

Dublinís plan for a new interchange at Rts. 161 and 33 is supposed to help northwestern Franklin County manage growth and the city market its 1,500-acre techbusiness center.  The mix of stop signs and traffic lights at the current interchange in southeastern Union County confuses motorists, said Paul Hammersmith, Dublinís city engineer.

Dublin is working on a design for a partial cloverleaf to replace the interchange, Hammersmith said.  Plans call for construction to begin by November. The project will be completed by the end of 2008, if no obstacles pop up.  But the owner of a farm at the intersection is fighting the cityís plans to force him to sell nearly 10 acres for one branch of the cloverleaf.

By MICHAEL RACEY
Villager Staff Writer


Dublin received kudos from a panel of corporate business leaders for development of its tech park, the Central Ohio Innovation Center, last week.  The COIC is a 1,500-acre venture in the southwest section of Dublin.  The Ohio State University Medical Center will be the anchor and plans to spend $200-million on three facilities in the park.

Dublin donated about 100 acres of tech-park land to UMC Partners, the business-development wing of OSU's medical center, for the project.  The city also is spending $22-million on the reconstruction of an improved interchange at U.S. Route 33 and Post Road as the gateway to the COIC.

136,000-square-foot Shamrock Crossing development planned
Thursday, December 7, 2006
By MARK MAJOR
Villager Staff Writer


Dublin's Planning & Zoning Commission is expected to consider a zoning change that could lead to the development of about 24 acres at West Dublin-Granville Road and Shamrock Boulevard.  The developers of Shamrock Crossing will attend tonight's P&Z meeting to request a change in zoning from residential and suburban office and industrial district to planned-unit-development district.

The site's owners plan a 136,000-square-foot development made up of retail, office and service uses.  The issue was tabled after October's commission meeting amid concerns the proposed development might not be in keeping with the desired character of the West Dublin-Granville Road area, as envisioned by city officials.  "What planning commission wanted was a more urban streetscape, with buildings located closer to the street," said Claudia Husak, city planner. "They asked for a distinct streetscape and a pedestrian-centered environment."

Council hears proposal for Tartan Ridge development
Preliminary plans call for 246 single-family homes and 24 townhouse units in the $400,000 to $800,000 price range.

By KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF
 
A new development -- with residences in the $400,000 to $800,000 price range -- might be coming to the Dublin landscape.  Dublin City Council held the first reading of a rezoning application and development plan for Tartan Ridge during a meeting Monday.  The area consists of 189.57 acres located north of the intersection of Hyland-Croy and McKitrick Roads. It is bordered to the east by Jerome Road and to the north by Brock Road.

The plan calls for the development of 246 single-family homes and 24 townhouse units, priced in the $400,000 to $800,000 range, approximately 68,500 square feet of commercial space and 69.14 acres of open space.

"We're trying to think of a central place, so that when people think of Dublin they think of this. This would be their picture of Dublin."

Dublin needs that very badly. When I think of Dublin, I think of Sawmill Rd. and the commercial park near Tuttle. Don't get me wrong though, for a commercial park its quite nice.

City to review 'incubator' facility plan
Thursday, April 5, 2007
By BRITTINY DUNLAP
Villager Staff Writer


Funding sources are materializing for a concept designed to foster new technology companies in Dublin and central Ohio.  At the heart of the plan will be an "incubator" facility that would be on a site yet to be determined in the city's 1,500-acre Central Ohio Innovation Center at the Route 33-state Route 161 interchange.  The incubator would house several start-up companies, allowing them to share resources and be housed in a single 11,500-square-foot facility.

The nonprofit TechColumbus, which is involved with the effort, announced Friday the state's Third Frontier Commission awarded a $6.2-million grant for the Entrepreneurial Signature Program (ESP), a regional initiative to increase the number of new technology businesses in the 15-county central Ohio region.  Part of the money will be used to establish the Dublin incubator, and a similar facility in New Albany.

From the 6/7/07 Dublin Villager:

Council members OK technology agreement with TechColumbus
Thursday, June 7, 2007
By BRITTINY DUNLAP
Villager Staff Writer


Dublin City Council seemed much happier with the revised proposal for a partnership with TechColumbus, a nonprofit company that will help foster new technology companies in Dublin and central Ohio.  Council approved the partnership in a 6-0 vote Monday.  One aspect of the plan is developing "deal flow," which Deputy City Manager Dana McDaniel defined as the number of entrepreneurial business opportunities being brought forth to justify the need for an "incubator."  The incubator is a single facility that would house several start-up companies, allowing them to share resources.

Won't ODOT have to pay this farmer guy for not only the land they take, but also the diminished economic value of the rest of his property which will lose highway access?  That could get real expensive.

Methodist hospital work on schedule
Thursday, April 5, 2007
By BRITTINY DUNLAP
Villager Staff Writer
 

Dublin Methodist Hospital President Cheryl Herbert can visualize almost exactly what the facility will look like as she winds her way around the construction site. After all, she has been working with the project for nearly three years.  As completion nears, Herbert couldn't be more excited that construction will be finished not only on time, in October, but also on budget. The $130-million hospital affiliated with OhioHealth is going up at 7500 Hospital Drive, on 89 acres south of Perimeter Drive and north of U.S. Route 33. It officially will open for business Jan. 8, 2008, and the staff will spend November and December hosting a variety of open houses for the community to come in and tour the facility.

Dublin Methodist Hospital sets standard with its design
By KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF 
 
"We hope you never need us," Lamont Yoder, Dublin Methodist Hospital Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer said during a tour of the new facility last week.  But, if you do, construction of Dublin Methodist Hospital is estimated to be complete Oct. 31, and open to accept patients in January 2008, Hospital Chief Executive Officer Cheryl Herbert said.

"We're ramping up in terms of personnel, and we are in the process of hiring the management team," she said from the hospital's administrative offices.  "It is going to get a bit more crowded in here soon, because our directors will be starting here at the end of June," she said.

Cardinal adding to headquarters
Thursday, October 4, 2007 - 3:48 AM
By Marla Matzer Rose, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH


Cardinal Health began work yesterday on a second headquarters building that will accommodate 700 jobs being brought to its Dublin campus as part of a consolidation.  Chief Executive R. Kerry Clark said the new building will be a slightly smaller version of the 10-year-old headquarters, at 250,000 square feet compared with 375,000 square feet. He joked that the "bridge to nowhere" -- a covered walkway that leads from the existing building and was built with the intention of connecting to a second building -- will now become a "road to somewhere."

Dublin hospital hopes to draw patients as well as it has lured construction
By Carrie Ghose, Reporter - Business First
December 10, 2007, 12:00am EST


Dublin Methodist Hospital bills itself as a testing ground for the latest research in health care construction and operations.  But when the latest OhioHealth Corp. facility opens Jan. 8, 2008, it will be watched for other reasons as well.

Smallish now at 94 beds, the hospital has the capacity to grow to 300 beds, and it could draw patients away from its neighbors, including OhioHealth's Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Mount Carmel St. Ann's Hospital in Westerville and Memorial Hospital in Marysville.  The medical office building construction boom around it also could lead to a shift in where primary care and specialty practices operate.
( . . . )
Dublin saw its population quadruple between 1980 and 1990 and double again since then to an estimated 39,000 in 2006.  Growth is expected to continue at a 6 percent annualized clip for five more years.  The hospital's service area also includes Powell, Hilliard, Plain City and parts of southern Union and Delaware counties.  Those markets mean a higher percentage of patients with private insurance will visit the hospital.

Wirchanski fighting to keep farmland
Wednesday,  September 3, 2008
By CHRIS ALEXIS, ThisWeek Staff Writer


John Wirchanski is fighting with Dublin over land that has been in his family for more than 170 years.  Wirchanski owns about 100 acres of farmland at the intersection of Post Road and U.S. Route 33.

Dublin wants to take 20 acres of his land located off Industrial Parkway, north of state Route 161.  U.S. Route 33 bisects the area.  Wirchanski's land, in Union County, is the biggest piece of land the city is trying to acquire so it can reconfigure the highway interchange into a partial cloverleaf.

Wirchanski suggested increasing the size of the existing ramps instead, but Dublin didn't agree with him.  He is also resisting four roundabouts Dublin wants to install -- three along state Route 161 and one at Industrial Parkway.

Cardinal growth covers spectrum
Health company's headquarters gets so big, it needs color coding, and it might grow more

Monday,  March 23, 2009 - 3:00 AM
By Mike Pramik, The Columbus Dispatch


Cardinal's $50 million, four-story addition expands the corporate campus to more than 600,000 square feet.  It will be able to accommodate 2,650 employees, including 950 in the addition.  Initially, about 500 will move into the new space.  They're mostly from Cardinal's medical-products supply-chain business based near Chicago, said spokesman Troy Kirkpatrick.  When they do, they'll encounter a modern interpretation of the corporate office, as designed by Bird Houk Collaborative.
