In 2016, Mount Carmel partnered with Tripp Umbach to facilitate the creation of the Mount Carmel West Transformation strategic plan for the Franklinton community of Columbus, Ohio.

By pursuing this valuable transformation planning process, Mount Carmel was able to bring itself and community leadership together to collaboratively develop a vision for the future of Mount Carmel West within the context of the greater community. The developed vision would deliver a platform for master planning of a campus that would meet the needs of the community and spur positive social and economic improvements within Franklinton and throughout Central Ohio.

In order to achieve this goal, Tripp Umbach developed and executed a methodology that included a large-scale engagement process as well a social and economic assessment of the proposed plans developed for the future campus in Franklinton. The assessment also provided potential impacts that could occur as a result of the proposed plans.
