Ohio Hospital Adding 2,400 Jobs Gets Tax Break

Ohio Hospital Adding 2,400 Jobs Gets Tax Break


December 02, 2008

COLUMBUS — Columbus will provide a multimillion dollar tax incentive to a local hospital planning to add 2,400 jobs.

Officials say they didn’t want Nationwide Children’s Hospital to take its expansion outside the city.

At a meeting Monday, city council agreed to give the hospital a 15-year tax break worth up to $15 million. Over the same time period, the city expects to collect more than $50 million in income taxes from the new jobs.

Councilwoman Charleta Tavares called the hospital’s hiring plans “monumental” for a city where some neighborhoods are struggling with double-digit unemployment.

Columbus officials say most of the new jobs will be in nursing, clerical and support services and will pay hourly wages ranging from around $13 up to nearly $30.
