Columbus Business First Announces Riverside Methodist’s $321 Million Neuroscience Expansion

The new NBBJ-designed Neuroscience Center represents a unique approach to care unlike any other, by fostering collaboration between disciplines including neuroscience, vascular care and heart care, providing greater convenience and a better patient experience overall.

The OhioHealth Neuroscience Center will have 224 private rooms. This gives patients and their loved ones the privacy they need, improves patient safety and hospital experience, and positively influences physician and staff productivity. After the new facility opens, OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital will gradually transition to a nearly all-private room campus.

NBBJ is using the latest research in space design to create a healing environment with the unique neuroscience patient in mind. Specially designed floor patterns, colors and other interior materials will help with wayfinding, reduce stress and improve overall patient well-being. Patients and their families will experience quiet areas and beautiful gardens, as well as an atrium in the center of the building that will let natural light into every patient care room. The environment is designed not only to help the unique neuroscience patient get better, but feel better, too.
