Nearly three years ago, representatives with The Ohio State University announced plans to continue to expand the footprint of the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center in a big way, but few concrete details have emerged on the project since then.

Today, the first rendering was unveiled of the new 26-floor Inpatient Hospital that is slated to add 1.9 million square feet of space and 840 beds. The project is expected to cost $1.79 billion.

The hospital project is one piece of the larger Framework 2.0 master plan at the college, designed to expand and reconfigure the University grounds to position for future growth and better integration between existing assets across the campus. To learn more, tune in to our recent podcast interview with Ohio State’s Vice President of Planning, Architecture and Real Estate, Keith Myers.

OSU completed construction of The James Cancer Hospital in 2014, representing a $1 billion investment into the medical facilities at the college.

The Inpatient Hospital is expected to be completed in early 2026.
