Construction progress continues on the New Inpatient Hospital, which will provide up to 820 beds in private-room settings to elevate patient-centered care, safety and training for the next generation of physicians.
At the southern area of the site, located off of 10th Avenue, crews are installing caissons, which are deep foundations that allow the building to rest on bedrock approximately 60 feet below the ground floor. Earth retention has been installed along the north and west sides of the site to allow for the construction of retaining walls and lower level walls of the building. The first tower crane...
Columbus Business First recently wrote about the university seeking Board of Trustees approval this week for Cannon Drive Phase II.
Cannon Drive Phase II will straighten the road near Woody Hayes Drive but Cannon Drive itself will largely remain at its current elevation. The $57 million project is focused on achieving a certified levee and flood protection. The levee will be constructed to the west between the roadway and the river and will provide 500-year flood protection.
Design will continue through 2022 with construction (including any demolition) to begin in 2023. Phase I was completed in December...
The Columbus Dispatch shared news this week of plans for a new inpatient hospital - one set to be The Ohio State University's largest project in history.
As reported by the newspaper, Ohio State is seeking approval from the board of trustees for the construction of a $1.79 billion, 1.9 million-square-foot hospital tower. Pending trustees’ approval, the facility is expected to open in early 2026.
After extensive planning, the largest single facilities project ever undertaken at The Ohio State University seeks Board of Trustees approval this week. At 1.9 million-square-feet, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Inpatient Hospital will enhance leading-edge research, clinical training and world-class patient care. This is the next step in the university’s long-term Framework 2.0 planning and the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center strategic plan.
“The new inpatient hospital will serve as a model for 21st-century hospitals by further integrating research, diagnosis, treatment and education,” said Ohio State President-elect Kristina M. Johnson. “Ohio State is advancing the...
Dr. Hal Paz, OSU executive vice president and chancellor for health affairs and medical center CEO, recently sat down with Columbus Business First to discuss many topics including ongoing construction plans for the Wexner Medical Center Inpatient Tower.
"One lesson we've all learned is that you need inpatient facilities," Paz said.
As written by Business First , about 430 of the tower's rooms would replace existing beds while 390 rooms will represent an expansion.
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.
Columbus Business First recapped Ohio State's biggest construction projects over the last decade. As the outlet cites, from 2010 to 2019, the school's six largest construction projects alone totaled nearly $1.9 billion.
One big-ticket item helped the school reach that lofty spending total. The largest project of the decade – the $1.1 billion Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute, more commonly known as The James – carried three times the price tag of its nearest peer.
"This was an enormous project by any measure," said ...
Columbus Business First reports that Ohio State has approved a $2.37 billion 5-year capital plan to support Framework 2.0 and the university's strategic plan. It is an historic number for Ohio State as the university delivers on major projects identified in the campus master plan.
As reported by the outlet, classroom and laboratory buildings make up 47% of the new projects, and 39% are for OSU Wexner Medical Center.
“That’s really a healthy balance,” said Jay Kasey, Ohio State's senior vice president in the Office of Administration and Planning.
One mammoth project Ohio State is in the midst of is along the hospital corridor.
The school will build an 840-bed replacement to the original University Hospital along with a west campus urgent care and outpatient clinic. The project also straightens and relocates Cannon Drive to the west, protecting the hospital campus from floods and creating 12 acres for development.
