    Interesting video,

    Hospital Project was 6.5% under budget, fundraising efforts were 20% above goals. Nice stats for any project.

    Some floors have been in use for a few weeks. I believe the official move in date is June 20th for the rest. The Hematology/Oncology unit gets the top floor and a half and the view is going to be amazing.

    Nationwide Children’s Hospital expands
    New 12-story hospital highlights growth acrosss South Side medical campus
    By Ben Sutherly Sunday June 10, 2012 8:51 AM


    The new Nationwide Children’s Hospital adds lots of research and patient space.

    When Nationwide Children’s opens the crown jewel of its $786 million campus expansion next week — a 293-bed inpatient hospital — it hopes to raise its standing among its pediatric peers.

    But when it comes to the patients inside its glass walls, the hospital plans to keep a low profile.

    Officials and designers have gone to great lengths to keep hustle and bustle to a minimum around young patients and their families in the new hospital, which holds a community open house today.

    Maybe not yours, but there’s a few Parsons Avenuevians here.

    Could see as far as Buckeye Steel, the county workhouse and the ArcelorMittal plant on Watkins

    Columbus Hospital Turns to Healing Its Neighborhood
    Columbus | 06/28/2012 10:00am | 0
    SEAN ANDREW CHEN | NEXT AMERICAN CITY

    Mounting economic pressures, rising costs and diminishing returns have forced many hospitals to begin operating as large corporations, rather than charities, or face bankruptcy and closure. But does that mean they’re going to forget their original charitable mission? After a nearly 786 million dollar renovation and reconstruction, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio is trying to do otherwise.

    the cost of the neighborhood program is chump change compared to recent reconstruction and renovation of the hospital itself, which had a total price tag of $786 million.

    no doubt

    I find it very hard to believe that Children’s Hospital gives a damn about judiciously spending its money or being a good neighbor to the south side.

    Children’s Hospital plans to build a new Ronald McDonald House building for families of kids staying at the hospital.
    The organization already has $3.5 million in donations committed for the $5 million project, which will be located adjacent to Children’s. It replaces a building across the street, and will feature amenities such as bathrooms in every room and elevators for new mothers.
    The house was designed by Meacham & Apel Architects Inc. and Ronald McDonald House hopes to break ground in the fall of 2003.

    Children’s stirred neighborhood outcry in early 2007 when it announced the Ronald McDonald House that opened in 2005 on hospital grounds would be demolished only two years later to make way for an expansion.
    Razing such a new structure was “unfortunate,” said Paul Thompson, who became executive director in October.

    Neighbors are upset that Children’s Hospital is buildig a seven-story parking garage right in front of their homes.
    Council of South Side Organizations (CSSO) vice president Mike Elicson is not pleased with the plans unveiled Nov. 10 by Children’s Hospital for a new parking garage at the corner of Livingston and Parsons avenues. “There’s is no way you are ever going to make a seven-story parking garage fit in at the corner,” Elicson said.

    A new parking structure for Children’s Hospital is the object of some suggestions and recommendations from the Council of South Side Organizations. Mike Wiles, president of the CSSO, said suggestions from members of his group and from community residents were brought before Children’s Hospital officials during a meeting several weeks ago in an effort to help make the new structure more acceptable to the neighborhood.
    Their suggestions include locating modest retail shops on the first and second floors, he said. “What we hope would happen is to see some retail shops on the first or second floor facing Parsons Avenue, so it would blend into the neighborhood better instead of being a regular parking structure,” Wiles said.

    Children’s Hospital officials got an earful last night, as they presented their plans to knock down the 2-year-old Ronald McDonald House and construct a replacement nearby, which would mean knocking down several old homes in the process.

    Children’s Hospital got a heap of scorn last night from Columbus City Council members who said the hospital is shutting neighbors out of a $740 million expansion that will reshape everything around them.

    Etc, etc, etc…

    it’s pretty obvious they are trying to insulate the hospital from the neighborhood,and protect the humble staff from the evil dead nearby.

    good neighbors,my ass.

    I spoke with a nurse who works for childrens last week, she said they haven’t gotten a raise in 4 years.

    $786M worth of new buildlings, but they can’t find money to give their nurses a raise.
