The New James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute
Growing to meet demands for cancer services
Demand for cancer care is growing, and expected to continue with a projected increase in new cancer cases nationally of 45 percent – from 1.6 million in 2010 to 2.3 million by 2030.
- This rise includes an expected 67 percent increase in cancer incidence among adults 65 years and older due to a growing aging population, and a 99 percent increase among minorities due to aging and growth in minority populations.
- In the state of Ohio, cancer incidence is expected to rise 20 percent by 2030. Increases are expected particularly for melanoma and cancers of the thyroid, liver, pancreas and breast.
- Currently, The James is operating beyond capacity for inpatient and many outpatient services. The new James Cancer Hospital will ease the burden of cancer. The new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will ease this rising burden of cancer through a larger, state-of-the-art hospital that fosters compassionate care and collaborative, transformational research.
- The new hospital will expand capacity to 276 beds, up from today’s 210 beds.
- The new hospital will provide a calming setting designed to promote patient recovery and wellness while integrating research and education.
- The new hospital will offer an environment that inspires and enhances collaboration among OSUCCC – James researchers, who bring ideas and expertise from 11 of Ohio State’s 14 colleges.
- The new hospital will help attract and retain leading cancer investigators, talented young minds and the best doctors.
- The new hospital will help revolutionize cancer care and prevention through P4 medicine.
