St. Luke's Hospital has purchased a multi-specialty medical office building near downtown Columbus.
The 6-year-old building will be the new home for Rosenberg Bone and Joint and provide additional medical office space that will be valuable in the hospital's efforts to recruit much-needed physicians to the area.
"Many people recognize this building for its size and architecture, so we are thrilled that St. Luke's Hospital was able to reach a purchase agreement," hospital CEO Ken Shull said. "We have been in dire need of additional medical office space, and this impressive building will obviously help us in our recruitment efforts."
Formerly known as Carolina Medical Multicare Center, the building was owned and occupied by a local chiropractor and housed several health care providers. St. Luke's officials are considering a new name for the building to reflect the services housed there, including plans for a general medical practice and the growing orthopedic practice of Dr. Brian Rosenberg.
