New Hospital Envisioned as Centerpiece of a National Flagship Academic Medical Center

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University is taking a major step forward with the development of a new hospital and ambulatory center that, combined with modern educational space, will enhance a unified Wexner Medical Center complex providing cutting-edge research, outstanding clinical training and world-class patient care.

The university today announced requests for qualifications seeking design professionals for the inpatient tower and outpatient care facility that are key components of this bold plan.

The time for sweeping modernization is now, university officials say. The medical center closed out its most financially successful fiscal year in June, and the demand for patient care and medical education is greater than ever.
