Bethesda North Hospital | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Bethesda North Hospital (Cincinnati). Bethesda North Hospital opened its doors in 1970 as a satellite facility for Bethesda Oak Hospital in Avondale, which was founded in 1896 by a German immigrant and Methodist Episcopal Church minister, Dr. Christian Golder. In 1995, Bethesda became part of TriHealth, which was a partnership between the Bethesda hospitals and Cincinnati-based Good Samaritan Hospital. The original Bethesda Oak Hospital closed in 2000, but Bethesda North has since grown to be one of the Cincinnati area's top hospitals.

Bethesda North today is a 375-bed tertiary teaching hospital. It was ranked the No. 3 hospital in Ohio and the No.1 hospital in the Cincinnati metro area for 2014-15 by U.S. News & World Report. It was also nationally ranked in the top 50 for seven specialties by U.S. News & World Report, including cardiology, diabetes and endocrinology, otolaryngology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, orthopedics and pulmonology. As of 2014, the hospital had been named to the nation's "100 Top Hospitals" by Truven Health Analytics five times.

The campus' most recent expansion included a seven-story patient tower and an outpatient imaging facility, which is home to the first and only breast center in Greater Cincinnati to be accredited by the American College of Surgeons. It is also known for its experience in acute heart attack care, including minimally invasive heart and vascular surgery and robotic-assisted surgery. It was one of the first hospitals in the U.S. to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement and the first hospital in Cincinnati to use custom-built stents for aortic aneurysms.

In their own words:

"Founded in 1970 as a community satellite facility, Bethesda North Hospital has grown from a small 70-bed hospital to Cincinnati’s third largest with tertiary services such as open heart surgery, robotic-assisted surgery and a verified Level III trauma center. Bethesda North Hospital is a tertiary and teaching hospital that provides a wide range of services to patients throughout the northeast corridor of Cincinnati and into Butler, Clermont, Clinton and Warren counties. Bethesda North Hospital pairs personalized, compassionate care with the most up-to-date facility and technology. In 2007 Bethesda North opened a new seven-story patient care tower with 127 added private rooms and eight added private Maternity postpartum rooms bringing the total to 636 beds. The tower also includes a replacement Critical Care Unit with 32 rooms, with the capability to expand by nine additional beds when future demand grows. The expansion also added an on-site MRI and increased parking, and enhanced the technology for heart monitoring, patient safety, and computerized patient records and data. Expanded space for families and visitors encourages family participation in each patient's care. TriHealth’s Bethesda North Hospital is proud to be recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review for being named one of a 100 Great Hospitals in America."
