Medical Campuses

Expanding to heal our communities from within

Central Ohio will be home to 3 million people by 2050. This growth requires the need to prepare for fast-changing demands and expand access to high-quality health care. With a new hospital tower and five new suburban medical campuses, Ohio State is growing to meet those growing health care needs.

Integrating research, diagnosis, treatment and education, the new Wexner Medical Center hospital tower will serve as a model for all 21st-century hospitals. The new hospital tower brings researchers and clinicians into closer working proximity. This means they’ll translate groundbreaking discoveries into patient care more quickly than ever before.

Our community will have the potential to access the latest advancements and treatments to slow the progression of conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Specialized procedures for complex organ transplants. Prenatal and neonatal care for high-risk pregnancies. Ohio State is advancing the future of medicine for a quickly growing community with changing health care needs. Together, we will build vibrant futures — right here in Columbus and central Ohio.

Integrating family as a critical part of the patient experience

We believe families are a critical part of caring for each patient: They help health care providers understand symptoms, ask important questions on behalf of their loved ones and play a crucial role in caring for patients when they leave the hospital.

That’s why this new hospital is designed with input from patients and the people who love and support them.

Each patient room will be a private space with a bathroom and pull-out couch, so a family member can be with their loved one throughout their hospital stay. A bright indoor café and outdoor park areas will provide restorative space where friends and families can eat, talk and recharge without leaving the medical campus. And conference rooms will be designed to accommodate patients, care teams and families, so that families and health care providers can make important health care decisions together.

New medical campuses in burgeoning Columbus suburbs mean excellent, convenient care for the people of our growing region.

Connecting patients to health care right where they live and work

Several new medical campuses will give patients closer-to-home access to primary care, preventative care and urgent care from the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. For families in our growing central Ohio communities, this means fast, convenient access to high-quality care that helps keep them healthy — and helps them avoid hefty health care costs down the line.

These spaces will serve the evolving needs of entire families, from prenatal care to primary care to eye care. They’ll house urgent care treatment and preventative care screenings such as mammograms and colonoscopies. And each campus will be equipped for general surgery, so patients will have access to imaging, surgery, post-operative care and follow up, in the same building.

The new medical campuses are planned for five fast-growing areas: first New Albany, Dublin and Powell, then the southeastern and southwestern suburbs.

This mean less time driving to routine appointments, shorter waits for appointments and more convenient access to preventative health care.
