The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Reveals $1.9 Billion New Inpatient Hospital
Ohio State University propels forward with new hospital and educational space, uniting research, training, and patient care.
The Ohio State University is embarking on its largest-ever facilities project, constructing a 1.9 million-square-foot inpatient hospital.
The new hospital will boast up to 820 beds in private-room settings, prioritizing patient-centered care, safety, and training for the next generation of healthcare providers.
This expansion will replace and expand upon the existing 440 beds in Rhodes Hall and Doan Hall.
The OSUCCC-James will see a significant increase of 148 beds, including 84 new beds and 64 resulting from construction backfilling.
Additionally, the hospital will include 60 neonatal intensive care unit bassinets.
State-of-the-art facilities for diagnostic, treatment, and inpatient services, along with emergency departments, imaging, operating rooms, critical care, and medical/surgical beds, will be incorporated.
Renovation work will be undertaken at the OSUCCC-James and Ross Heart Hospital, focusing on the blood bank, support services, and building connections.
To accommodate patients and visitors, a new Wexner Medical Center Garage with a capacity of up to 1,887 spaces will be constructed.
The anticipated opening of the new hospital is slated for early 2026, following years of meticulous planning.
