OhioHealth Grant Cancer Center to Open Downtown on Sept. 12
This nearly $25 million investment will provide an even more collaborative approach to cancer care in an easy-to-access location for the most frequently used cancer services – whether that is regular screening, active treatment or survivorship support.
“Five years ago we expanded our cancer footprint at Grant,” said Praveen Dubey, MD, OhioHealth VP of Cancer Care. “Given the success and growth of that program, we are expanding our services on the campus to continue to serve downtown and surrounding communities. We will also be advancing our presence in radiation oncology by adding a new Linear Accelerator and relocating our radiation oncology services from Grant’s lower level to the first floor of the Bone and Joint Center to allow for a better patient experience.”
The Grant Cancer Center, which is 29,340 square feet and two floors, will include the following services:
- Infusion services (expanding from 16 chairs to 28 chairs)
- Medical oncology and hematology
- Radiation oncology
- Lab services
- Patient navigators for personalized assistance
- Genetic counseling
- Financial counseling
- Nutrition counseling
- Survivorship and high risk clinics
- Cold cap therapy to prevent or minimize chemotherapy-induced hair loss
- Precision medicine
- Research and clinical trials
- Blood transfusion
- Valet parking
“We are thrilled to grow our already exceptional cancer care program at Grant and provide accessibility and comfort to our patients and their families,” said Michael Lawson, Grant president. “This continues to be an exciting time for Grant and for those who seek care in and around downtown Columbus. The Grant Cancer Center opening kicks off some major growth downtown with the incoming $400 million investment to build a new ambulatory facility and trauma center, emergency department and critical care pavilion breaking ground soon.”
The Grant Cancer Center complements many of the other recent advancements OhioHealth is making in the communities we serve around cancer, including the Westerville Cancer Center, Dublin Cancer Center, Marion Cancer center and the upcoming OhioHealth Pickerington Methodist Hospital. These investments are amplified by OhioHealth’s “Keep Making Plans” cancer campaign, a powerful message to our community and cancer patients which serves as a reminder that life with and beyond cancer can be exceptional.
The Grant Cancer Center was designed by MA Design and built by Daimler and Smoot Construction.
