(COLUMBUS, Ohio) November 2014 – The newest and one of the largest cancer hospitals in the nation is set to open its doors and usher in a new era in the battle against cancer. By 2030 cancer is expected to overtake heart disease as the nation’s number one cause of death, but state-of-the-art facilities like the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at Ohio State are helping doctors and researchers in their efforts to stay one step ahead.

The 21-story hospital is more than a million square feet and is among the first to feature patient rooms, education centers and research labs all on the same floor. “I think this kind of integration, having research right alongside patient care on the same floor, is really the future of cancer care,” said Dr. Michael Caligiuri, director of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center and chief executive officer of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. “Our hope is that the interactions between our patients, doctors and researchers will lead to real inspiration,” said Caliguiri.
