Building For A Healthy Tomorrow

Growing our organization -- and expanding services -- is just one way we are investing in our future, and in the communities we serve.


The Intersection of Health, Wellness and Recreation

The City of Columbus and Columbus Regional Health have joined forces to build a dynamic community asset that will consist of a broad range of health, wellbeing, and recreation services and experiences. In short, we're breathing new life into a former indoor mall. We're programming something for everyone! 

  • Wellness and recreation-based community spaces
  • City Parks and Recreation administrative and program use
  • Indoor sports complex with the addition of a 150,000 square-feet fieldhouse.
  • Dining and retail
  • Columbus Regional Health medical office and treatment/exam space
  • CRH patient support and therapies services

We asked. You answered!

In numerous community and user-group surveys and focus groups, our patients, staff, and members of the public told us they wanted NexusPark to "feel different." A place that breaks away from the traditional, stereotypical healthcare environment.

  • "Inviting."     
  • "Accessible. Easy to navigate."   
  • "Calming."     
  • "A place I want to go."     
  • "Relaxing."

For CRH, NexusPark will be a modern and dynamic atmosphere for patients and workforce members, in an environment that enhances care and patient experience.

Concept Art

Background:  The City of Columbus asked CRH in 2018 to partner with them in the ownership of Fair Oaks Mall, which was diminishing as a traditional retail mall.  CRH owns 25 percent of the property and the City owns 75 percent, with Heritage Fund of Bartholomew County as a founding contributor.

West Side Farm Property

A Land Use Planning Committee was formed to direct this work in 2019 and as a result, we identified approximately 150 acres on the site to preserve for our use.  We will continue work with the broader community on uses for the remaining acreage.  This long-term work will occur over the next several years.
