Council Approves Incentives for job consolidation and growth
OhioHealth is solidifying its presence in Dublin with the help of an economic development agreement with the City. The healthcare system is working to consolidate various administrative associates scattered throughout Dublin at a new, Dublin-based location.
At the November 5 Council meeting, Dublin City Council approved an economic development retention and expansion incentive worth $4.9 million, which includes performance incentives, a retention grant, and the renewal of its connection to Dublink – Dublin’s fiber optic network.
“OhioHealth is Dublin’s second largest employer and it is extremely important for us to work with them to ensure their long-term presence and growth in our community,” says Economic Development Director Colleen Gilger.
Gilger points out that this agreement is a good deal for Dublin. “This is a low-risk agreement for the City because the incentives are tied to payroll growth. The company will only qualify for incentive payments if it generates growth in income tax dollars that we collect.”
OhioHealth agrees this is a win-win for both entities.
”We’re excited about the opportunity to continue to deepen the partnership between the city of Dublin and OhioHealth,” said Roland Tokarski, System Vice President, Real Estate, Construction and Facilities. “It has been a special relationship since the day we first opened Dublin Methodist Hospital in 2008 and we look forward to watching it grow in the future.”
