CINCINNATI (July 26, 2022) – U.S. News & World Report has named The Christ Hospital #1 in the Cincinnati Region for the eighth consecutive year for 2022-23 and number 5 in the state of Ohio.
The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in its 33rd year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.
