Columbus Regional Health has announced the purchase of property on the west side of Bartholomew County. Hospital officials say this property acquisition signifies an investment in the long-range future of Columbus Regional Health and the community.
Southeastern Indiana Medical Holdings, an affiliate of Columbus Regional Health, purchased approximately 790 acres on the west side of Columbus near Interstate 65, from Garden City Farms LLC., and closed on the property Friday morning.
CRH officials says that the opportunity to secure undeveloped land in a part of Bartholomew County that is accessible to not only local residents, but also regional and travelling consumers, positions them with the capability to engage in purposeful evolution and growth, and to meet anticipated future needs. They add that CRH “looks forward to working with community partners to consider and plan the purposeful development of the land.”
