Ohio State is taking a major step forward with the development of a new hospital that, combined with modern educational space, will enhance a unified Ohio State Wexner Medical Center complex providing cutting-edge research, outstanding clinical training and world-class patient care. The tower will be the largest single facilities project ever undertaken at Ohio State with up to 840 beds in private-room settings to elevate patient-centered care, safety and training for the next generation of physicians.
Potential details on the scope and scale include:
Up to 840 beds, replacing and expanding on the 440 beds in Rhodes Hall and Doan Hall; all 840 beds would be in private-room settings to elevate patient-centered care, safety and training for the next generation of physicians
60 neonatal intensive care unit bassinets
State-of-the-art diagnostic, treatment and inpatient service areas (emergency department, imaging, operating rooms, critical care and medical/surgical beds)
Leading-edge digital technologies to advance care and teaching
Enhanced connections between the new Inpatient Hospital and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute that also connect to Rhodes Hall, Doan Hall, the Ross Heart Hospital, and the Brain and Spine Hospital
Additional green space as well as a new parking garage west of McCampbell Hall
A new inpatient tower garage with up to 1,900 spaces to serve patients and visitors by replacing the North and South Cannon garages.
