COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Columbus children’s hospital has announced a $130 million expansion.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital on Monday said it plans a six-story, $85 million ambulatory-care building, and another six-story, $45 million building that will house faculty offices.

The hospital said the 200,000-sqaure-foot Livingston Ambulatory Center is expected to have 100,000 patient visits annually.

The ambulatory-care center will house outpatient services, such as primary care, dental services, behavioral health, dermatology, adolescent medicine and sports rehabilitation, as well as clinics such as the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition. Construction is expected to start in February.

Construction of the new office building has already started.
