Down the hall, crews are continuing with final paint and primer in the cyclotron vault, which will prepare it for the arrival of the proton equipment. The picture also reveals the large temporary roof hatch. Removal of this hatch allows the rigging crews to lower precisely the particle accelerator to be lower into its final home.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Outpatient Care West Campus, located in the Innovation District, is almost 40% complete. The 385,000-square-foot cancer-focused facility will include central Ohio’s first proton therapy treatment facility in partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Construction began in summer 2020, and recent progress highlights include:

  • Overhead plumbing and inwall electrical installation on level two is ongoing, while walls are being framed and topped out with drywall. 
  • Sprinkler mains are being installed and structural steel fireproofing continues on level four.
  • Support beams called girders are being placed throughout multiple levels of the structure and future treatment rooms are undergoing painting.
  • Work on the top floor of the 640-space parking garage is nearing structural completion.

View the photo slideshow above to track the project’s progress. The outpatient care center and garage will open in summer 2023, with the proton center scheduled to open in fall 2023.
