Children's Hospital purchases land in Clermont County

CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A new Children's Hospital facility could be coming to Clermont County.

FOX19 has learned Children's paid $5 million for 25 acres of land just off I-275 near the Batavia Pike exit, across from the new Jungle Jim's.

They say one of the options is a neighborhood outpatient facility similar to that one in West Chester but without inpatient beds or an emergency room. They are doing studies to determine exactly what they want to build there.
