The James Outpatient Care

The James Outpatient Care

The James Outpatient Care is located at 2121 Kenny Road in the Carmenton innovation district. The $356.5 million project includes outpatient operating rooms, interventional radiology rooms, extended recovery unit, pre-anesthesia center, a diagnostic imaging center, pharmacy, hematology clinic, genitourinary (GU) clinic, infusion and medical office and support spaces. The project also added a 640-space James Outpatient Care parking garage. The approximately 385,000 square foot cancer-focused facility includes central Ohio’s first proton therapy treatment facility in partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The building joins the Pelotonia Research Center and an Energy Advancement and Innovation Center as the first three major projects envisioned for Carmenton.

Proton Therapy Center

The proton therapy facility, in partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is the first of its kind in central Ohio. Proton therapy is an advanced type of radiation treatment that uses protons (positively charged particles) instead of x-rays to kill cancer cells. A machine delivers a high-energy proton beam painlessly through the skin from outside the body.

Proton therapy utilizes 65,000 square feet and accounted for approximately $105 million of the overall project budget. Nationwide Children’s committed up to 50% of the proton center project cost.
