Construction is 45% complete on the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Outpatient Care New Albany. The facility includes two sections - a five-story medical office building and a two-story ambulatory surgical center. The project remains on track to wrap up by June 2021.
Duct work, interior framing and plumbing all continue on the medical office building's second, third and fourth floors. Roofing materials are now on site, and that work should begin shortly. The Ambulatory Surgical Center continues with exterior framing and sheathing, installation of plumbing on the first floor and work on the HVAC penthouse.
The Ohio State University alumnus Ratmir Timashev MS ’96 and his wife, Angela Timashev, have committed their charitable foundation to provide $17 million to the College of Arts and Sciences. This gift – the largest philanthropic contribution made by an individual or foundation in the college’s history – will support construction of a new music building as part of the university’s emerging Arts District. It will also support the renovation of Celeste Laboratory of Chemistry and create endowed scholarships for Arts and Sciences students.
The Ohio State University continues to navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) by taking steps to serve the best interests of our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors. The university has assessed capital projects in an effort to increase financial liquidity until the full impact of COVID-19 is known.
All projects in our pipeline remain important to support our teaching, research and patient care missions. We also recognize the need to be prudent and cautious during these uncertain times. Most construction will continue as planned. However, following an evaluation, projects that can be slowed or modified have been identified.
Most Ohioans are doing their part to flatten the curve by staying at home as we all battle COVID-19. As a thank you to the many Buckeyes practicing social distancing or working from home, we’ve brought the sights and sounds of campus to you. If you’re in need of a walk through the Oval, or a study break near Mirror Lake, take a ride with our drone as we fly through by the landmarks of our Columbus campus. We’re all in this together and we will get through it.
Columbus Business First recently wrote about a pair of projects set to seek full or partial construction approval from The Ohio State University Board of Trustees.
The outlet wrote that planners are seeking trustee approval this week to start work on the $161.2 million Dublin outpatient center and $132.3 million for the first phase of the larger west campus complex, which joins an also advancing interdisciplinary lab in the new Innovation District laid out in the unviersity's latest master plan.

The Ohio State University Board of Trustees approved construction, and the remaining balance of design services, for an Interdisciplinary Research Facility to be located in the heart of its new West Campus Innovation District.
“The West Campus Innovation District will foster an environment that attracts both world-class researchers and leading-edge companies to work in close proximity,” said Dr. Morley Stone, senior vice president for research. “This collaboration will allow for a collision of people and ideas and ultimately new areas of research that will drive the innovation landscape for the region for decades to come.”
“Our patients want the best and most convenient care,” said Dr. Hal Paz, executive vice president and chancellor for Health Affairs at Ohio State and CEO of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. “These outpatient care locations, with state-of-the-art health services, fulfill that need in our communities.”

The Lantern recently wrote about how the Arts District will support a growing major of study at Ohio State. As reported by the outlet, students in the Moving-Image Production program will have a new place to call home and express their talent through moving images for the first time in fall 2022.
The new building construction on College Road is part of Ohio State’s Framework 2.0 project, a plan to develop the Columbus campus that is focused around the campus’s physical needs to support academics at Ohio State.
The Ohio State University is investing over $3 billion in capital improvements to create the campus of the future, shaping the best possible environment for clinical care, learning and research. These facilities include a new 840-bed inpatient hospital, four large outpatient care centers, an interdisciplinary research facility and an interdisciplinary health sciences center that includes the Ohio State College of Medicine.
Watch how these investments in state-of-the-art facilities will advance Ohio State's mission of teaching, learning and research.
