Hilliard, Ohio (December 12, 2019) – Atkins Companies, a multigenerational commercial real estate development, investment, and property management firm, announces a lease expansion with an affiliate of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for 12,000 square feet of medical office space at the Mill Run Business Center located at 3641-3731 Ridge Mill Drive in Hilliard, Ohio. The lease expansion brings the 100,000-square-foot, two-building medical office complex to full occupancy. Atkins Companies recently negotiated a refinancing of the complex with Peapack Gladstone Bank.
Situated just outside of Columbus less than one mile from the Jack Nicklaus Freeway (Interstate 270), the Mill Run Business Center lies within 10 miles of six major hospitals and clinics, including the 971-bed Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, the 92-bed Dublin Methodist Hospital and the 25-bed Doctors Hospital.
As an anchor tenant the lease expands Ohio State University Medical’s presence at the property to 62,500 square feet. The complex features OSU Medical affiliate groups including Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute’s (OSUCCC – James) Gynecologic Oncology outpatient center.
Boasting a team of over 23,000 employees, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is one of the nation’s most prestigious healthcare systems and has held a spot on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals list for 27 consecutive years. Their network of over 100 hospitals, community-based offices, and care centers allows the system to offer clinical care in virtually every medical specialty and subspecialty through a unified physician practice, representing more than 1,000 pre-eminent physicians who manage more than a million patient visits each year.
