The East Ohio Regional Hospital (aka East Ohio Hospital) located at 90 N. 4th Street in Martins Ferry, Ohio first opened in 1906. However in 2019 the owner-operator at the time was unable to run it profitably resulting in the facility having to shut down. Fortunately for the region, the hospital was purchased by a new operator, Hospital Innovations LLC (the new commercial enterprise, or “NCE”), which is controlled by Dr. John Johnson, and reopened in March 2021, once again treating patients from counties in Ohio and neighboring West Virginia.

  • Hospital is fully operational
  • New Behavior Health unit will serve addiction patients
  • Hospital is fully financed with funding from State of Ohio and developer Bridge fund (EB-5 will replace Bridge funds)
  • Previous EB-5 investors have been granted expedited processing
  • Job creation requirement already achieved – 23 jobs per investor
  • At least $9 million developer equity subordinate to EB-5

Expedite approval, an option for EB-5 investors to consider

The EB-5 investment program has been a reliable way to get U.S. permanent resident status for investors and their immediate family members. While the process may take time, there is a faster option. EB-5 investments considered to be in the national interest and other criteria can get expedited approval by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Expedited approval is the fastest EB-5 processing an investor can obtain.

“An expedite has the potential to save investors years off the adjudication time of their I-526 petitions. When an investor receives an expedite, they literally are supposed to go to the front of the line,” says Matt Gordon, Chief Executive Officer, E3iG.

An expedited EB-5 project is one that has been determined by USCIS to serve an urgent humanitarian need and/or a compelling U.S. government interest. Investors who can demonstrate that their investment, by investing in an expedited project, will serve an urgent humanitarian need and/or a compelling U.S. government interest, may also receive expedited processing of their I-526 petition (however, expedited processing is not guaranteed.)

By investing in an expedited EB-5 project, investors may need to wait only a few months instead of a few years for their I-526 petition to be approved (however, to remind again, expedited processing is not guaranteed.)
