The Ohio State University Medical Center (OSUMC) is a multidisciplinary academic medical center located in Columbus, Ohio, on the main campus of The Ohio State University (OSU). In 2010, the Ohio State University Hospital was ranked one of "America's Best" by U.S. News & World Report in 11 specialties. OSU Medical Center was the only Central Ohio hospital ranked as "America's Best" in 2010. [1] In 2009, OSUMC was ranked as one of the best hospitals in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report in 10 specialties, and placed among 21 hospitals named to the nation's honor roll of hospitals.[2]


The Ohio State University College of Medicine

The Ohio State University College of Medicine is part of the medical center.

James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute

The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute is a dedicated cancer hospital and research center that is part of the university's Comprehensive Cancer Center, with a governance structure separate from, but coordinated with, OSUMC.

OSU Physicians, Inc.

OSU Physicians Inc., a unified physician practice representing more than 700 physicians.

OSU Health System

The OSU Health System is part of the center, which includes University Hospital and University Hospital East, OSUMC's two full-service hospitals. Other hospitals include the OSU Harding Hospital, an inpatient and outpatient psychiatric hospital; the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital, dedicated to the study, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases; OSU Rehabilitation Services at Dodd Hall, one of America's Top 10 rehabilitation centers, according to U.S.News & World Report; and the OSU Primary Care Network, an extensive network of community-based primary and sub-specialty care facilities throughout central Ohio. More than 50,000 inpatients receive medical care annually from OSUMC and OSUMC manages more than 1 million patient visits each year.

Medical breakthroughs and firsts

Pioneer Dr. Carl Leier developed Dobutamine, the revolutionary drug treatment to help heart failure. Dr. Bertha A. Bouroncle discovered hairy cell leukemia and developed a cure for it, Deoxycoformycin, along with Dr. Michael Grever, and Dr. Eric Kraut. Dr. Albert de la Chappelle discovered the founder mutation in cancer. Dr. William Hunt and Dr. Robert Hess in the Department of Neurological Surgery developed the Hunt and Hess scale for grading the severity of intracranial hemorrhages. Educational firsts by the Ohio State Medical School include an independent study curriculum in 1970, and a human cancer genetics fellowship. OSU was the first medical center in the United States to complete a heart bypass using minimally invasive robotics technology and the first to insert a digital pacemaker in a patient. Ohio State is a world leader in imaging research, installing the world's most powerful magnetic resonance imaging scanner in 1998, the 8 tesla MRI.[3]

In 2000, young doctors and recent OSU graduates Peter Kourlas and Matthew Strout conducted genetic research that led to the discovery of a gene that plays a role in acute myeloid leukemia. Their work was conducted in the lab of Dr. Michael Caligiuri, an internationally celebrated researcher recognized for his work in leukemia, lymphoma and immunology.[4]

In 2002 Dr. Carlos Croce at the Ohio State University Medical Center took part in a groundbreaking genetic discovery concerning aberrant microRNA expression in fighting cancer, which sparked a new whole new field of medical research.[5]

In 2009 scientists at the university also became the first to observe the entire real time behavior of the enzyme Dpo4, which will lead to studies on how genetic copying mistakes are made that lead to cancer and diseases, and the understanding of the molecular basis for disease.[6] Later that year scientists developed technology that can magnetically manipulate cancerous cells.[7]

Robotic surgery

The Ohio State University Medical Center has become a pioneer and leader in robotic surgery.

In 1999, Dr. Randall Wolf and Dr. Robert Michler became the first in the country to perform a robotically-assisted heart by-pass, while under the direction of Dr. Michler in 2009, the center became the first in the North America to use the da Vinci HS SI robot during a surgery.[8] In July 2009, OSU pioneered single incision robotic kidney surgery.[9]

In 2010, Dr. Enver Ozer performed the first robotic thyroidectomy in central Ohio.[8]

Proposed ProjectONE complex at the OSU Medical Center


In September 2009, the Ohio State University trustees approved a $1 billion expansion of the medical center.[10] The expansion is known as ProjectONE which refers to the collaboration between the Medical Center and The Ohio State University. The 20-story tower[11] will house hospital beds dedicated to cancer and critical care patients. The hospital notably received a $100 million federal grant for the inclusion of a specialized radiation oncology center. The proposed construction plans included demolition of Means Hall and work on surrounding electrical and sewage systems, among other changes. Ground was broken for the project on June 18, 2010 with a completion date slated for 2014.
