This December, Ohio State will open the doors of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, a transformational facility that fosters collaboration and integration of cancer research and clinical cancer care. The new James will be the Midwest’s largest cancer hospital and the third largest cancer hospital in the United States.
The patients served by this new 21-floor hospital will find themselves at the intersection of research, education and subspecialized care. Research and education spaces will be located on every floor, enhancing our bench-to-bedside approach to patient care and giving patients early access to new treatments and tools.
The new James will help revolutionize cancer prevention and care by enabling world-class oncologists and researchers to work side-by-side to solve the mysteries of this disease. Through their discoveries, cancer care will evolve from traditional, broad-based therapies to molecular- and genetic-based prevention strategies and targeted treatments for each patient’s unique cancer.
Innovative Design That Provides a State-of-the-Art, Healing Environment
- Inpatient floors that specialize in specific cancer subtypes to facilitate care by subspecialist multidisciplinary teams of physicians, nurses and pharmacists.
- Translational research labs on each inpatient floor that bring physicians together with researchers to develop and deliver the most effective targeted treatments for patients.
- A Cancer Clinical Trials Unit offers a comforting patient environment with a staff highly experienced in safely conducting innovative, early-phase trials.
- A State-of-the-Art, GMP Cellular Processing Laboratory for blood and marrow supports the hospital’s 24-bed Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit.
- Precision Cancer Medicine using advanced genomic technologies to identify both the molecular changes causing a patient’s cancer and the right drugs to treat it.
- A Fully Integrated Cancer Emergency Department that will treat cancer-related medical emergencies. Emergency medicine physicians and nurses will work with oncologists and oncology nurses to care for patients and ease their transition to further care at The James or at home.
- The Oncologic Surgery Suite has 14 operating rooms supported with the most advanced technology, including minimally invasive robotic surgery, to enable teams of surgeons to perform complex procedures.
- Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy and Intra-Operative MRI technologies that can be used for patients in the operating room for greater safety and efficiency.
- The Radiation Oncology Department that is equipped with seven Varian TruBeam linear accelerators, as well as a brachytherapy unit, bringing the newest technologies for delivering radiation therapy.
