The Heart Behind Greater Cincinnati's Heart Hospital

It is no secret that The Christ Hospital is Greater Cincinnati's Heart Hospital for many reasons. Our Heart & Vascular program has transformed the region's healthcare by providing patients access to innovative procedures and revolutionary treatments through clinical research trials that are not available at other local hospitals. We are a nationally recognized program and a clinical research center ranked No. 1 in overall performance among the top cardiovascular clinical research centers in the country.

But what does that really mean for the patients we treat in the community we serve? According to these four heart and vascular patients, it means giving them more time to do the things they love, with the ones they love. These lives, these stories, put it in perspective. To us, the main reason we are Greater Cincinnati's Heart Hospital is because of these stories and hundreds more like them. There are no awards that give as much satisfaction as a grateful patient whose life was saved and forever changed.
