Below is a map of our Master Facilities Plan. Click on the links below the map to learn more about our six key areas of growth.
The centerpiece of Nationwide Children's master facilities expansion will be a new main hospital, opening in 2012, which will create the second largest pediatric hospital and research center in the U.S. [more...]
Currently, Nationwide Children’s accommodates almost 933,000 patient visits each year. By 2012 that number will grow to nearly one million. As a result, the new building will have an estimated capacity of 460 beds, all with enhanced modifications for patients and their families.
Other features include:
The proposed new “front lawn” to Nationwide Children’s Hospital will add about six acres of green space to the campus. [more...]
Besides enhancing the patient/family experience, this space will help absorb rainfall and manage water run-off more effectively than concrete and asphalt. It also helps the area stay cooler in the summer.
The green space will complement Livingston Park, which is owned by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. It will be open to the community and will have park benches, serene gardens, walking paths, and wide bikeways.
At 97,850 square feet, the new clinical research building is home to Nationwide Children’s Surgery Center, as well as a Center for Digestive Disorders and GI Procedures and Clinical Psychology. [more...]
Two floors are dedicated to research, including space for the Center for Biobehavioral Health, the Center for Innovation in Pediatric Practice and the Battell Center for Mathematical Medicine.
Nationwide Children’s goal is to expand our campus westward, while fitting within the desired character of the community. [more...]
A third, new research facility will add 225,000 square feet of space.
The Livingston Avenue Garage has 1,530 parking space for staff, opening up other parking for patients and families. [more...]
Opening with the new inpatient tower, the inpatient visitor garage will be located under the expanded greenspace and will provide 420 parking spaces connected via tunnel to the new tower.
To power our expanding campus, Nationwide Children's Hospital is building a new environmentally friendly “green” Central Energy Plant. [more...]
Meeting all disaster preparedness requirements, the 50,000 square foot power plant will provide heating, cooling, electricity and back-up generators to the entire campus. It’s located next to the current power plant and is in the final stages of completion.
