Ohio State names medical center for trustee Wexner

Published:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State trustees have voted to rename the university's medical center in honor of Limited Brands founder and longtime university supporter Les Wexner.

The announcement Friday came almost exactly a year after Wexner donated $100 million to the medical center, one of the largest such gifts ever to a public university.

Wexner also helped fund the Wexner Center for the Arts, named for his father.

The medical center will now be known as the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University.

Wexner has donated more than $200 million to Ohio State and helped raise hundreds of millions more.
