Ohio State Outpatient Care Dublin is now open at 6700 University Blvd., Dublin. While it may look like yet another large medical building from the outside, it’s interesting what’s taking place inside.

That’s because the five-story, 34-acre, 272,000 square-foot facility near U.S. Route 33 off of Shier Rings Road is a one-stop shop of sorts, with six outpatient surgery operating bays.

“For convenient, walk-in health care, look no further than Ohio State Advanced Immediate Care,” said the OSU Wexner Medical Center website. “These services are available for patients of all ages, from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. seven days a week.”

Ohio State Advanced Immediate Care can treat common illnesses such as COVID-19, flu, ear infection and sore throat; broken bones, dislocations, sprains, burns or stitches; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, migraines; and offers X-rays, CT scans and lab work. Specialized treatments, such as infusion and rehabilitation, are available. Members of the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center can provide mammography screening, cancer care and cancer rehabilitation.

Same-day outpatient surgery and procedures can be performed, including cosmetic vein treatment, interventional radiology, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, and vascular surgery. Imaging and lab services can handle MRIs, fluoroscopy, body composition, ultrasounds, and urine and blood tests.

Outpatient Care Dublin also has an on-site retail pharmacy.

“If your health care visit resulted in a new prescription, you can leave the appointment with your new medication in hand,” the Wexner Medical Center website said. “You can also have any of your prescriptions filled here, just like any neighborhood pharmacy.”

The following medical services are being offered at Outpatient Care Dublin: allergy and immunology, arthritis and rheumatology care, cardiology, diabetes and endocrinology, digestive diseases care, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, hand care, kidney care, lung and pulmonary care, mental and behavioral health, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, podiatry, primary care, dermatology, sleep disorders, spine care, sports medicine and urology.

This is the second such facility in the area: Outpatient Care New Albany opened last summer at state Route 161 and Hamilton Road. A third facility, in Powell, will begin construction next spring and be open in 2025.

“With more comprehensive outpatient care and surgical centers in more suburban locations, we’re realizing a vision of better health for all,” the Wexner Medical site said.

The healthcare facility is featured on the City of Dublin’s Economic Development website.

“This new facility is yet another example of Ohio State’s longstanding commitment to fulfilling our land-grant mission by sharing our expertise, resources and nationally-recognized healthcare services with the communities we serve,” said OSU President Kristina M. Johnson, in a press release from the Wexner Medical Center.

“Dublin is a safe, resilient and inclusive city with the best quality of life and environment for all to thrive – physically, mentally, socially and emotionally,” said Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel in the same release. “This partnership with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is a key contributor to that resilience. We are beyond proud to bring this world-class university-based medical center to Dublin and look forward to accomplishing much together to enhance the community and quality of life.”
