Building the Future of Medicine

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Expansion is a $1.1 billion revitalization of the research, education and patient care spaces, utilities, infrastructure and green spaces across our Medical Center campus, which includes the construction of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Critical Care Center. This is the largest expansion project in Ohio State’s history.

These improvements to our campus will make the care at Ohio State more predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory. We call it P4 Medicine and we believe it will fundamentally change the future of health care and dramatically improve people’s lives.

The New James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Critical Care Center

The new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will expand access to world-class cancer care in central Ohio, helping to meet a projected 21-percent increase in patient admissions over the next 10 years.

With a $100 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration, we have developed one of very few above-ground radiation oncology units in the country, offering patients natural light and outside views during their treatment.

The hospital’s design combines research and education spaces on every patient care floor, which will accelerate the creation of new diagnostic tools and treatments.

It will also serve as one of the largest classrooms in the state, with healthcare education spaces on every patient floor that will be used by students, residents and fellows, and faculty and staff teams for collaboration and continuing education.

The new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute features fully equipped rooms that allow patients to receive nearly all of their care in the comfort of their own rooms.

Every patient suite in the new Critical Care Center includes adjoining areas where loved ones can stay, sleep and shower, keeping families together.

Patient friendly concourses and inviting lobbies link laboratories, classrooms, offices and garages, giving patients and visitors convenient access to all of the Medical Center’s healthcare services.

Ohio State’s electronic medical record system will be accessible in every room involved in patient care, giving your care team immediate access to your medical records and ensuring safe, accurate coordinated care.

Biomedical Research Tower

Completion of the final shelled floors of Ohio State’s Biomedical Research Tower adds 100,000 square feet of research space, an 8 percent increase in overall research space that will help Ohio State create a cancer-free world and improve people’s lives.

Ross Heart Hospital

The addition of two floors to the Ross Heart Hospital added 60 new beds doubled the hospital’s electrophysiology labs, giving Ohio State’s heart experts the ability to treat nearly 4,000 more patients every year.

Emergency Department

Our newly designed Emergency Department is twice the size of the original, with designated entrances for walk-in and ambulance traffic that expedite access to emergency care.
