The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center
James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute
As the country’s third-largest cancer hospital, the James serves as an innovative model for 21st-century cancer care.
The facility brings together clinical care, research and education in a highly subspecialized care model called precision cancer medicine. The state of the art building includes a cancer emergency department, one of only a few in the country, staffed by specially trained clinical staff.
The building’s large diagnostic and therapeutic base has a flexible floor plan to provide flexibility of use and ability to change and evolve over time. The project is organized vertically with a clearly defined diagnostic and treatment podium platform that connects to existing University Hospital facilities for integration and efficiency.
Unique Care for Every Cancer
The 276-bed, inpatient tower supports highly specialized units, where oncologists, nurses, pharmacists and genomic experts collaborate in the treatment of a single type of cancer. Medical staff collaborate with researchers to target the molecules and markers fueling each person’s unique cancer. Translational research labs on inpatient floors bring together physicians and researchers to develop targeted treatments.
Patient and Family
Home-like spaces offer comfort for families, featuring lounges, consultation rooms and respite areas on each floor. Natural light throughout the hospital supports the physical and mental well-being of patients, families, clinicians and researchers alike. Outdoor cafés and terrace gardens on the 14th floor are open to all.
