James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute recently dedicated its new 1.1-million-square-foot, 21-fl oor freestanding cancer hospital. Located in Columbus, Ohio, it is the third-largest cancer hospital in the country. The building brings clinical care, research and education together in a sub- specialized care model. Each inpatient unit has its own cancer focus. The OSUCCC-James also features the nation's fi rst cancer emergency department integrated with a hospital's main emergency department. This unit includes 15 cancer treatment stations staf ed by a team specially trained in oncology and emergency medicine. Its radiation oncology center features seven treatment vaults located on the hospital's second fl oor. While most radia- tion centers are underground to help with radiation protection, the facility is one of two centers in the country to construct its radiation center on the second fl oor, pro- viding patients and families with sunlight and a view overlooking the park outside. Natural light is a key design feature throughout the hospital. Patients, visitors and staf will enjoy outdoor cafés and terrace gardens on the 14th fl oor, where plantings will include vegetables that researchers at the OSUCCC-James have demonstrated to have cancer-preventive properties.
