OSU James Cancer Hospital
Columbus Ohio

The new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will expand access to worldclass cancer care in central Ohio, helping to meet a projected 21% increase in patient admissions over the next 10 years.

With a $100 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration, OSU is developing one of very few above-ground radiation oncology units in the country, offering patients natural light and outside views during their treatment.

The hospital’s design combines research and education spaces on every patient care floor, which will accelerate the creation of new diagnostic tools and treatments. It will also serve as one of the largest classrooms in the state, with healthcare education spaces on every patient floor that will be used by students, residents, fellows, faculty and staff teams for collaboration and continuing education.

The new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will feature fully equipped rooms that allow patients to receive nearly all of their care in the comfort of their own rooms. Every patient suite in the new Critical Care Center includes adjoining areas where loved ones can stay, sleep and shower, keeping families together.

Patient friendly concourses and inviting lobbies link laboratories, classrooms, offices and garages, giving patients and visitors convenient access to all of the Medical Center’s healthcare services.
