The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute


As the patient-care component of Ohio State's cancer program, the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is a transformational facility that integrates scientific research, education and innovative patient care. Research and education spaces are located on every inpatient floor, enhancing our bench-to-bedside approach to patient care and giving patients early access to new targeted treatments and tools. 


The OSUCCC – James has more than 200 oncologists, each of whom specializes in just one type of cancer. That expert subspecialization leads to more productive integration with cancer research and, ultimately, to better outcomes. We manage hundreds of active or pending cancer clinical trials, many of which are initiated by OSUCCC – James investigators. Our genetic- and molecular-based research helps us understand each patient's unique cancer and develop and deliver the most effective targeted therapy that leads to better outcomes, fewer side effects and more hope.


Excellence in Cancer Care


A model of excellence in patient care, the OSUCCC – James has achieved Magnet® designation as part of the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®. This voluntary hospital recognition program is considered the highest honor an organization can receive for quality patient care and professional nursing practice. The OSUCCC – James is fully accredited by the Joint Commission, the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy.
