The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is expanding world class medical care in Central Ohio. DLR was retained to develop a master plan concept for a series of suburban outpatient facilities, as part of a $3 billion expansion plan. The initial phase of each location will include a five-story medical office building and a connecting ambulatory surgery center. A second phase hospital may be accommodated as the health system expands.
Programs offered at all locations will include primary care, family medicine, specialty clinics, imaging, and surgery, with other programs dependent on community needs. The prototype incorporates a common design language based on the institution’s brand and standards. Expansion of these facilities is evocative of the academic medical campus, increasing access to care throughout the communities surrounding Columbus. The prototype building features are easily replicable and timeless across the health system and in future projects.
The first of three was opened in New Albany in 2021. The second project, opening this month, is located on a 34-acre site in Dublin, Ohio. The 115,000-SF, three-story ambulatory surgery center accompanying the MOB includes urgent care, imaging, rehabilitation, endoscopy, and ambulatory. A unique aspect of this campus is the focus on orthopedics, sports medicine, and joint care. The facility and site are designed to allow for expansion with a future planned 216,000-SF, 90-bed inpatient hospital.
Join the Academy of Architecture for Health as we get to tour the second iteration of this prototype, and hear the lessons learned as they begin to shift focus to project 3.
