Phyllis A. Jones Legacy Park – Located across 10th Avenue from the James, the park was designed to evoke The Oval from the heart of Ohio State campus for patients and visitors to enjoy a restful, peaceful garden and find comfort and solace. The park was named thanks to a gift from Phyllis A. Jones. Mrs. Jones’ gift fulfills a promise she made to her late husband, Clayton K. Jones, who was among the first patients treated for lung cancer at The James after it opened in 1990. His physician was Arthur James, MD, the hospital’s namesake. Mr. Jones asked his wife to “take care of The James. They’ve taken care of me.” Mrs. Jones, former president and CEO of Fiesta Salons, hopes the park will provide a restful, peaceful garden where patients, visitors and staff can find comfort and solace.
