Cincinnati Children’s broke ground for a medical building in Eastgate designed to provide access to medical services that will be even closer to home for families in Clermont County as well as other counties along the Ohio 32 corridor and parts of Northern Kentucky.
The two-story building will encompass nearly 110,000 square feet and employ about 200 people – including physicians, registered nurses, therapists, mental and behavioral health specialists, medical assistants and support staff.
The building will feature outpatient medical and surgical specialty clinics, occupational and physical therapy, sports physical therapy, speech therapy, audiology services and ophthalmology as well as partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs for mental health. It will also include a laboratory to expedite test results, along with a pharmacy, X-ray and MRI services.
Initial investment by Cincinnati Children’s is expected to be $85 million, which includes design, construction and equipment. The medical building will occupy about 10 of the 20 acres that Cincinnati Children’s purchased in Ivy Pointe Commerce Park in 2012 for $5 million.
