OhioHealth is expected to announce today that it will move its corporate headquarters Downtown to the Borden Building, central Ohio real-estate sources say.
The health-care company declined to comment yesterday, but a spokesman confirmed an announcement of some kind is to be made today.
OhioHealth, which operates Doctors Hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital in Delaware, Grant Medical Center and Riverside Methodist Hospital, is based at 1087 Dennison Ave. in Victorian Village.
A year ago, OhioHealth said it was negotiating with a specialty hospital company in Pennsylvania to sell the headquarters site, which used to be part of Doctors North Hospital. OhioHealth closed Doctors North in 2002.
Continental Real Estate, Nationwide Realty Investors and Capitol Square Ltd. acquired the Borden Building, 180 E. Broad St., in June 2004 for $28.95 mil-lion. The 34-story tower was 30 percent vacant at the time.
