Welcome to World-Class Cardiovascular Care!

Welcome to the Cincinnati Incorporated Cardiology Center of Excellence (COE) at The Christ Hospital where we provide world-class heart and vascular care to Cincinnati Incorporated health plan participants. You will receive the finest patient care experiences, exceptional clinical outcomes, and significant cost savings through incentives for health plan members.

This partnership with The Heart & Vascular Institute at The Christ Hospital began April 1, 2021 and includes nationally recognized cardiologists—specialists and subspecialists, private rooms with comfortable space for family and visitors, state-of-the-art operating rooms, and on-site laboratory services.

Members receive only one bill and explanation of benefits, which includes fees for the facility, surgeons, and other ancillary costs during the hospital stay or visit. The health plan waives the out-of-pocket costs for members utilizing the COE for included procedures.
