Columbus-based Ohio Gastroenterology Group is moving into a 42,000-square-foot medical office building and opening an endoscopy center, Columbus Business First reports.

What you should know:

2. All four practices will own shares in the building. OGG will own the largest share and the most square footage.

3. OGG has seven locations in Ohio.

4. Group COO Frank Chapman explained the rationale for OGG's multiple locations saying, "Instead of building one very large surgery center and expecting patients to come to us, we're actually moving out to where the patients live. We spend a great deal of time looking at population trends. We're definitely going to have additional sites in the future."
