The Christ Hospital | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

The Christ Hospital (Cincinnati). The Christ Hospital was founded about 125 years ago with a vision to reduce sickness and poverty. In 1888, Isabella Thoburn, a teacher, nurse and missionary, was invited to come to Cincinnati and asked to start a program to train deaconesses and missionaries to carry on religious, educational and philanthropic work to alleviate poverty in the community. She went, and in 1889 opened a 10-bed hospital named Christ's Hospital in the West End. It was moved to Mount Auburn in 1893, a nursing school was opened in 1902, and the hospital was renamed The Christ Hospital in 1904.

The Christ Hospital was ranked No. 41 in the nation for diabetes and endocrinology by U.S. News & World Report in its 2014-15 rankings, and as No. 8 in Ohio and No. 3 in the Cincinnati metro area. The hospital has consistently been named the Most Preferred Hospital by the Greater Cincinnati community by the National Research Corp. Additionally, Healthgrades named The Christ Hospital as one of America's Best Hospitals for 2015, and it is among only 6 percent of U.S. hospitals awarded Magnet recognition for demonstrating the highest-quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovation in nursing.

The Christ Hospital Health Network is moving forward with its mission to expand exceptional care where people live and work by opening its Montgomery (Ohio) Outpatient Center this spring. The center is part of The Christ Hospital's commitment to transforming care in the Montgomery area. The Christ Hospital Health Network also has announced its initial redevelopment plans for the landmark Drawbridge Inn site in Fort Mitchell, Ky., which include a 75,000-square-foot medical office building to be part of a larger, mixed-use development.
