COLUMBUS, Ohio — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the Ohio State University has received $100 million for a construction project at OSU Medical Center.
The funding, distributed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), was awarded through a competitive grant program created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
Ohio State University was the only grant recipient in the country.
The funding will support ProjectONE, which will expand the OSU Medical Center, including the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. ProjectONE received funding through the Expand Access to Care Program, which will go toward the university’s medical and dental school and its academic health center.
ProjectONE will also provide funding to unify OSU’s clinical care, research facilities, and education on each floor of its Medical Center. Slated to be completed by 2014, ProjectONE will include a new cancer hospital, critical care tower, outpatient center, research laboratories and classrooms.
