We’ve reached another milestone in building the future of medicine! Demolition of the exterior of Cramblett Medical Clinic has begun as part of Medical Center’s Expansion Plans.
The demolition of Cramblett Medical Clinic will allow space for the Phyllis Jones Legacy Park that will be located in front of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Critical Care Center.
Due to increased construction traffic, pedestrians are reminded to be safe in this area and use designated sidewalks.
Cramblett Hall Fun Facts
- The Cramblett Medical Clinic was built in 1974 and helped to provide outpatient services in more than 50 specialties including Obstetrics, Neurology, Surgery and Ophthalmology.
- In 1999, the building was named Cramblett Hall in of honor Henry G. Cramblett, who was dean of the College of Medicine from 1973 to 1980, and served as vice president for Health Sciences from 1980 to 1982.
- While at Ohio State, Cramblett obtained funding for construction of Rhodes Hall at the Medical Center and also worked to secure funding for the current James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
- On average, more than 1,000 patients from throughout Ohio were seen each week in the clinic by Medical Center physicians, nurses and staff.
As part of our sustainability efforts and LEED certification for the new building, demolition material is being recycled.
Demolition of Cramblett Medical Clinic is expected to be complete by late April 2013.
