Cincinnati Children’s Hospital expands with new primary care facility in Symmes Township

Published on

Cincinnati, Ohio – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is expanding its operations by opening a new primary care facility worth several million dollars in Symmes Township. The new Cincinnati Children’s Loveland Primary Care will occupy a 10,125-square-foot space previously used by CVS, located at 10554 Loveland-Madeira Road. The choice of this location was influenced by its proximity to Interstate 275, which is a key factor in its selection.

“Many families who live in Loveland or surrounding areas such as Symmes Township depend on pediatric primary care from Cincinnati Children’s, and they soon will have a much closer option for this service,” Dr. Evaline Alessandrini, chief operating officer for Cincinnati Children’s, said in a news release as reported by the Cincinnati Business Courier. “We’re making this investment to ensure families have convenient access to world-class health care.”

The renovation of the interior of the building is set to start shortly, with the design and improvements estimated to cost about $6 million. The project will involve teams from GBBN Architects, KFI Engineers, RFC Group, Kolar Design, and Triversity Construction. The facility is expected to be ready by the spring of 2025 and will be equipped to handle up to 25,000 patient visits annually once it is fully operational.

“Our goal is to ensure that the region’s children are the healthiest in the nation, and part of that goal is to provide families with close-to-home options, including excellent primary care for kids,” Dr. Jeff Anderson, senior vice president and chief population health officer, said. “Our primary care providers (will) work closely with pediatric specialists at Cincinnati Children’s for more advanced care options if needed.”

Children’s Hospital didn’t purchase the building but instead opted for a long-term lease at the Symmes Gate Station shopping center. Josh Rothstein from OnSite Retail Group, who represented the landlord, commented that despite e-commerce posing challenges to shopping centers, medical offices are filling these vacant spaces, thus maintaining the liveliness and importance of local strip centers.

The newly opened facility will start by hiring over a dozen staff members including a physician, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, a behavioral health counselor, medical assistants, and patient access representatives. As the facility begins to see more patients, the number of job openings is expected to increase.

This development is part of a broader effort by Children’s to increase its presence both locally and internationally. For instance, in April, they announced the completion of a $11.2 million project in Centerville and started a new partnership with Abu Dhabi Health Services Co. and Akron Children’s Hospital. Earlier in the year, they revealed plans to enhance their collaboration with Parkview Health in Fort Wayne, Indiana, aiming to establish a new pediatric hospital. In 2023, the health system also initiated the construction of medical buildings in Union and Eastgate.

Cincinnati Children’s, a nonprofit valued at $3.2 billion, is the largest health system in the region and the second-largest employer after Kroger, as per research by the Courier, with over 19,000 workers. Approximately one-third of these employees work in research fields.

The health system ranks as the No. 1 children’s hospital in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report.
