The Steel is Going Up!

It’s been quite an exciting (and hot!) summer at the OSU Medical Center. It seems like just yesterday that concrete trucks were making their way into our excavation site, and now the steel for our new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is beginning to go up!

I had the chance to tour the Expansion site with OSU President E. Gordon Gee yesterday. It’s pretty incredible even now, and will only be moreso as the steel framework begins to rise on the skyline.

We have also made  exciting progress at the site of our new Chlois G. Ingram Sprit of Women Park on the Medical Center’s concourse. If you were a visitor to the old park, we have captured all the artistic tiles from the original site and reproduced them as glass tiles that will be installed in the reflective fountain that you can see being built here. The tiles rest just under the surface of the flowing water. It will be truly magnificent when it opens next spring.
