CoverMyMeds released plans for their new campus in Franklinton, and it’s straight out of Silicon Valley.
The new campus will bring 1,000 new jobs and $240M into West Franklinton. In addition to the jobs and the twin, 200,000 square foot buildings, CoverMyMeds is also planning two community initiatives.
COSI Partnership Positions Franklinton’s Youth for Success
CoverMyMeds aims to ensure that positive steps to benefit the youth of Franklinton are being taken. They will team up with COSI on their new STEM program called The Platform, a pipeline for student STEM engagement, inspiration, and transformation.
“Because of where COSI is located, in Franklinton’s backyard, we are especially interested in ensuring we have a positive impact for the families of these adjacent neighborhoods. Making our science center and cultural institution accessible to Franklinton and its residents is critical to COSI,” said Dr. Frederic Bertley, COSI President and CEO. “We could not be more thrilled to partner with CoverMyMeds, a health and technology company, to launch our youth flagship program that will significantly impact children and families in the Franklinton Community.“
Partnership with CML Enhances Learning Opportunities for Franklinton Workforce
By partnering with the Hilltop and Franklinton branches of Columbus Metropolitan Library, CoverMyMeds will assist in creating enhanced educational opportunities for adult community members directly through on-site training resources, additional technology equipment and suggested course curriculums through Lynda.com.
“This partnership with CoverMyMeds seeks to provide living-wage career opportunities for job-seekers in the Franklinton and Hilltop neighborhoods and, ultimately, all communities in central Ohio,” said Columbus Metropolitan Library CEO, Patrick Losinski. “We’re committed to helping build a stronger workforce, and this partnership allows us to move beyond job help and into workforce optimization.”
There is a lot to be excited about with this new campus. Personally, I think the best feature has to be that park like green space and boat launch. Who gets to ride a kayak at work? So cool.
The first building is slated to open in 2021, with the second following three years later. For more information about the new campus, click here.
