Proposed Ohio State Wexner Medical Center facility to annex into Powell

(POWELL, Ohio)–July 6, 2018–Powell City Council unanimously approved a pre-annexation agreement during last night’s meeting for a proposed healthcare facility. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is proposing the development of a healthcare facility to be located at the northeast corner of Sawmill Parkway and Home Road and seeks to pursue an annexation of the property and proposed facility into the City of Powell.

Phase 1 of this development will be a 200,000 square foot ambulatory care center offering a broad range of services. The facility will house a large and comprehensive program that offers primary care to many specialty services as well as diagnostic and procedural/surgical services. The proposed facility will also include convenient walk-in and urgent care, primary care, several specialty care areas and various lab testing, imaging and treatment services under one roof.

“This project is a win for the community on many levels,” said City Manager Steve Lutz. “It provides for a significant professional and medical center use within the City and our residents stand to benefit from having easy access to world-class medical services.”

The first phase of the development is projected to employ 500+ physicians and staff with an estimated payroll that will exceed $50 million annually once the facility is fully built-out.
