Westerville Medical Campus

Westerville Medical Campus 300 Polaris Parkway Columbus, OH 43082 USA

OhioHealth sought a qualified developer for its campus at Polaris Parkway and Africa Road in Westerville, Ohio.  Equity was selected from numerous competitors and selected to be a ground lessee and build a 165,000 square foot, Class A, healthcare project to OhioHealth’s specifications.  Equity worked with an architect that had previously been selected and provided value engineering input that reduced project cost by over $8 million – without any compromise of the facility’s utility or design intent.  This savings assured financial feasibility and allowed Equity to create a highly successful investment.  Equity provided design management, development services, total construction and site improvements, leasing of the asset to 100%, property management services, asset management and eventual sale of the asset, creating a windfall for physician and investor partners.

The facility was built with third-party capital allowing OhioHealth to achieve the facility they wanted and needed without any investment in its physical infrastructure.  They did provide capital for construction overages above their market-based allowances.  The facility was built out to accommodate outpatient surgery, urgent care, imaging, laboratory services, nuclear medicine, extensive rehabilitation services and medical offices for specialty as well as primary care uses.
