As Ohio State approaches its 150th year, we have established a long-term planning vision called Framework 2.0 which focuses on improving access for students, faculty and staff at Ohio State and for our patients and providers at Wexner Medical Center. The first phase of the project scheduled to begin Tuesday, Sept. 5., will relocate Cannon Drive, providing flood protection for the hospital and surrounding areas of campus. 

Accessing the ED
In an effort to continue to provide easy access to the ED for our EMS partners, we will have two ED entrances: 

  1. The current EMS entrance
  2. A NEW south EMS entrance opening Sept. 11 near the public Emergency Department entrance off of 10th Ave.

Please view our FAQs, and watch our short informational video (below), with an explanation of the routes in place for EMS.
