Design Achievement - The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is developing a $3 billion plan for a new suburban outpatient care program that supports growth in the region, and excellence in academic healthcare. Outpatient Care Dublin is a 272,000-SF, $161.2 M outpatient surgery center and medical office building that follows a prototype template developed by DLR Group, and is the second of five ambulatory care facilities in an expansion plan. DLR Group’s design aligns with the aesthetic language of the academic medical campus. Carefully crafted interiors align with the institution’s brand and design standards that facilitate expansion throughout future projects, predicated on the institution’s operational processes and future goals. The exterior design concept is by Pelli Clarke Pelli.
Scope Summary - The project is being constructed on a 34-acre site between the new Shiers Ring Road extension and State Route 33. The initial phase project includes a 150,000-SF, five-story medical office building that houses primary care, family medical, and specialty medical clinics; and a 115,000-SF, three-story ambulatory surgery center that includes urgent care, imaging, rehabilitation, endoscopy, and ambulatory care. A unique aspect of this campus will be the focus on orthopedics, sports medicine, and joint care. Patient amenities include a café, registration services, community conferencing space, retail pharmacy, a large exterior courtyard, and covered drop-off zone. The site and building are designed to allow for future expansion with a 216,000-SF, 90-bed inpatient hospital. DLR Group provided medical programming, planning, architecture, interiors, FFE, and structural, mechanical, electrical, and IT/AV engineering services.
