Update: Global Payments gifts vacant TSYS riverfront property to Mercer Med for new campus
3 Mar 2020
The Mercer Medical School plans for Columbus have changed — and changed dramatically.
The university has been gifted a prime piece of riverfront property north of the downtown TSYS campus. Plans now call for the campus to be put on a more than 7-acre tract formerly owned by TSYS.
“We would like to thank the W.C. Bradley Co., TSYS, Global Payments and the Columbus community-at-large for the spirit of collaboration and overwhelming generosity they have shown during the planning phase of this process,” said Mercer President William D. Underwood in a statement released this morning. “Mercer University School of Medicine in Columbus will be among the most beautiful medical school campuses in the country and will stand as yet another testament to the ethos of this vibrant community and its investment in solving one of this region’s most pressing needs by training future generations of medical doctors.”
