The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is embarking on a major five-year expansion, a key aspect of which includes construction of a network of medical office / ambulatory surgery centers along the outer belt of the Columbus metropolitan area. The initial project, which is serving as the prototype, is under construction with two additional sites currently under consideration. All sites are master planned for the addition of an acute care hospital. This presentation will be the first in a series of lectures that outline the process of expansion, methodologies of site selection, the development of the prototype building, and related regulatory considerations; in addition, the series will address the larger context of the growth of the academic medical campus and how the use of brand and processes can support integration across the entire enterprise. Subsequent lectures will discuss the completed project, how initial objectives were achieved, and lessons learned.
- Outline the process that underpinned the expansion plans.
- Review the methodology that determined the site selection, program for the building, and related regulatory considerations.
- Discuss the development of the prototype building.
- Explore how brand and process considerations support the broader enterprise goals.
