Wexner Medical Center
Ohio State is taking a major step forward with the development of a new hospital that, combined with modern educational space, will enhance a unified Ohio State Wexner Medical Center complex providing leading-edge research, outstanding clinical training and world-class patient care. The 1.9 million-square-feet inpatient hospital will be the largest single facilities project ever undertaken at Ohio State with up to 820 beds in private-room settings to elevate patient-centered care, safety and training for the next generation of physicians.
Scheduled to open in early 2026, planning is years in the making and advances Framework 2.0 (link is external), the university’s long-term planning vision, as well as the Wexner Medical Center strategic plan.
The inpatient hospital has a total project cost of $1.79 billion and will be located east of Cannon Drive. It will create stronger connections with The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC–James), Rhodes Hall, Doan Hall, the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital and the Brain and Spine Hospital. Additional project details include:
