In December 2014, The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will open the doors of a new 1.1 million square foot, 21-floor freestanding cancer hospital—making Columbus, Ohio, home to the third largest cancer hospital in the United States.

The facility integrates a robust clinical research enterprise and highly subspecialized care model into one building, and it promises to deliver the most advanced genomic-driven care options while also accelerating the pace of research discoveries by integrating translational research labs on the same floors where patient care takes place.

“Every aspect of our new hospital was designed to address the specific needs of each cancer patient who comes into our care,” says Michael Caligiuri, MD, Director of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center and Chief Executive Officer of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

“Subspecialization is built into the hospital, floor by floor, and integrates evidence-based care and genomics to allow for true customization of care for each patient. It also facilitates an unprecedented level of collaboration between the oncologists and scientists who work every day to achieve a cancer-free world in Ohio State’s clinics and labs,” Dr. Caligiuri said. ■
