Columbus, OH

Scheduled to open in 2026, this 1.9 million sf inpatient hospital is the largest single facilities project ever to be undertaken at The Ohio State University. 

The new $1.2 Billion, 820-bed inpatient hospital will generate a stronger connection with the existing campus healthcare facilities by replacing and expanding on the 440 beds in Rhodes Hall and Doan Hall; gaining 148 beds (84 new and 64 resulting from construction backfilling) and the renovation of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCC – James); and the renovation of the Ross Heart Hospital for blood bank, support services and building connections. 

The scope also includes 60 neonatal intensive care unit bassinets; a state-of-the-art diagnostic, treatment and inpatient service areas; emergency department; imaging; operating rooms; and critical care and medical/surgical beds. Additionally, a new inpatient 1,900-space hospital garage will be constructed to serve patients and visitors. The new garage facility will replace the existing North and South Cannon garages.
