Turner Construction Company, the university’s lead construction manager of the Wexner Medical Center Expansion, which includes the construction of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, Critical Care Center and expanded Emergency Department,has raised $183,828 this year towards Pelotonia’s goal of ending cancer.
Turner’s peloton, made up of 43 riders and three virtual riders, placed among the top 10 fundraisers in 2013. In November, members of Turner Construction Company presented a check for Pelotonia with Jay Kasey, Senior Vice President of Administration and Planning and Steven Gabbe, MD, Senior Vice President for Health Sciences, The Ohio State University and Chief Executive Officer, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, in attendance.
Since 2011 Turner has raised more than $705,847 for Pelotonia. 100% of Pelotonia funds support cancer research at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Through Pelotonia, Turner is directly supporting the important work done by the people whose new home they are building.
The glass panels are starting to go up on he new terrace garden that will be located on 14th floor of the new hospital. The terrace gardens give patients and visitors the opportunity to enjoy relaxing green spaces without leaving the hospital.
Work is underway on the new canopy, located at the front entrance of the new hospital. The covered canopy helps protect patients and visitors from the elements.
The eastern end of the lobby features the grand staircase that leads to the Critical Care Center Lobby. The dramatic three-story tall lobby is named after the JEGS Foundation for their generous support.
Race car drivers with JEGS Automotive Inc. helped to pass out over 1,500 homemade cookies and meet with construction workers helping to build the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center yesterday.
Construction workers got to have their photos taken with the drivers and race cars operated by the Coughlin family, which owns JEGS Automotive, one of the largest and most successful automotive equipment companies in the nation and a record-breaking racing team.
The event enabled the Coughlin family — including Jeg Coughlin Sr. and sons John, Troy, Mike, and Jeg Jr. – along with the drivers and their crews, to personally thank the construction workers for their efforts to create a cancer-free world with the new 300+-bed cancer hospital, slated to open in 2014.
The Coughlins recently gave $10 million to The Ohio State University Foundation to help transform cancer treatment and research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC–James).
In June, Ohio State’s Board of Trustees recognized the gift and approved naming the main first-floor lobby of the new James in honor of the JEGS Foundation.
The Coughlin family features the JEGS Racing for Cancer Research ribbon on all race cars and uniforms to raise awareness. The logo is a ribbon bearing the black and white checkered motif of a finish line flag, filled in with colors representing various cancer awareness programs.
Starting today, a portion of 10th Avenue will close as construction continues on the new Phyllis Jones Legacy Park. This closure will be in place until mid-September. Look at the progress.

The colors of spring are in the air around the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. More than 5,000 daffodils adorn the new Chlois G. Ingram Spirit of Women Park, that opened in August 2012. To honor Mrs. Ingram and her love for daffodils, a group of volunteers and members of the Ingram family helped to plant the flowers in the park this past fall.
The Spirit of Women Park is just one of several greens spaces that are being added to the OSU Wexner Medical Center campus as part of the expansion plans.
