Improving Our Community

Job Growth

The Medical Center Expansion and construction of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Critical Care Center supports 15,000 jobs in our local community:

  • 5,000 construction jobs
  • 6,000 direct full-time jobs
  • 4,000 indirect full-time jobs supported through spending by Ohio State and its patients and visitors

Economic Impact

This expansion project will generate $1.7 billion in economic impact for Ohio by 2015.

Ohio State already generates $2.4 billion in economic impact each year.

Community Revitalization

Funds from state tax incentives applied to the expansion will be used by Ohio State to contribute to Partners Achieving Community Transformation, a revitalization project in Columbus’ Near East Side neighborhood.
