It was approved by the Dayton Board of Zoning Appeals this spring.
CareSource, which now has about 2,000 employees in downtown Dayton, has been rapidly growing in recent years into a nonprofit with more than $7 billion in revenue and members in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and now Georgia, which it just expanded into this year.

Some contributers to its growth have been the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio in 2014 and CareSource’s continued expansion of private health plans it sells through Affordable Care Act marketplaces.
This year, CareSource expanded into nine Ohio counties and four Indiana counties that otherwise wouldn’t have had an option for buying health plans through the ACA marketplaces. This includes expanding into Paulding County, marking the last county in the U.S. getting an ACA health plan option for 2018.
The insurer has become a major employer in Dayton, anchoring downtown with its employment base. It struck a deal with the Ohio Tax Credit Authority late last year to increase its job-creation commitment to 1,920 jobs by 2019 — including current positions being filled and the new jobs promised — raising the company's annual payroll in Dayton to more than $129 million.
Along with its 230 N. Main St. headquarters, CareSource bought a building it had been leasing called Ballpark Village, across from Fifth Third Field.
