The Christ Hospital - 100 Great Hospitals in America | 2014

The Christ Hospital (Cincinnati). The Christ Hospital can trace its roots back to 1889. That's when Isabella Thoburn, a teacher, nurse, and missionary, came to Cincinnati and opened Christ's Hospital, a 10-bed facility. Now part of The Christ Hospital Health Network, the hospital works to fulfill its mission: "To provide the finest patient experience and improve the health of our community."

U.S. News & World Report ranked it as the top hospital in the Cincinnati metro area and fourth overall in Ohio.

The 555-bed hospital is well-known for the quality of heart care it provides to patients. Historically, it was the first hospital in the region to perform an aortic valve replacement without open heart surgery. For its efforts, its Heart and Vascular Center has been recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield and the American College of Cardiology Foundation, and the hospital was also named to Truven Health Analytics' 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in 2013.
