The Medical Center Expansion and construction of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Critical Care Center supports 15,000 jobs in our local community:
- 5,000 construction jobs
- 6,000 direct full-time jobs
- 4,000 indirect full-time jobs supported through spending by Ohio State and its patients and visitors
This expansion project will generate $1.7 billion in economic impact for Ohio by 2015.
Ohio State already generates $2.4 billion in economic impact each year.
Funds from state tax incentives applied to the expansion will be used by Ohio State to contribute to Partners Achieving Community Transformation, a revitalization project in Columbus’ Near East Side neighborhood.
