Cummins building on wellness with new health center

The backhoes tearing apart one former medical facility signaled an important step in Cummins Inc.’s plan to construct in its place a wellness center that will focus on employees’ total lifestyle care.

Demolition of the Volunteers in Medicine building in the 800 block of Jackson Street in Columbus began this week. It clears the path for construction of a nearly 30,000-square-foot Cummins LiveWell Center.

Construction on the new center is expected to be complete by the end of 2015, allowing it to open in early 2016, said Dr. Dexter Shurney, Cummins’ chief medical officer.
