Lead the Way FORWARD

It’s a new day for healthcare at UC Health in Cincinnati.

At UC Health, we advance healing and reduce suffering in our communities by providing world-class care delivered with compassion.

We believe that no one should leave Greater Cincinnati to receive the care they need – in fact, we receive patients from all over the United States and other parts of the world.

Together, each team member brings the best of themselves, including specialized training in their service area, to care for our friends and neighbors.

One way we are investing in our people, our patients, services and community is to invest in our facilities, creating healing, innovative environments that reflect the expertise, passion and innovation that occurs every day within our walls.

We are creating healing, innovative environments that reflect the expertise, passion and innovation that occurs every day within our walls.

If you’ve been here, especially for a complex illness or injury, you’ve likely seen firsthand the teamwork that occurs when professionals from all disciplines come together to put you – the patient – first.

If you come to us in the middle of the night, you’ll find resources to help you like no one else can. We are authors of breakthroughs – relentlessly pursuing what’s next as we research the next cures, medicines and treatments.

We teach and share our knowledge and passion - both the clinical expertise and the compassion you expect
 - and more than 1 out of 3 physicians in this region received education in their specialties – and sub-specialties – right here with us.

Day or night, no matter the season, our teams are working hard to ensure that no one ever need to leave
 Cincinnati, and that we welcome those from other regions, for the very best care for themselves or their loved ones.

Our ongoing investment is also our promise to you. We promise to never stop seeking what’s next, to be relentless in our pursuit of the best in medicine delivered with compassionate hearts and hands for you and those you love.

We are proud to be bringing more hope to Cincinnati.


  • A modern, expanded Emergency Department

    As the region’s only Level I trauma center, we have a responsibility to our community to be fully and easily prepared to care for all patients – especially those with the most complex illnesses and injury. We will renovate and expand the 30-year-old Emergency Department at UC Medical Center to better anticipate and serve the needs of the community.

  • Additional operating room capacity

    Today, our outpatient operating rooms are located in a different building, Holmes Hospital, from the main hospital, UC Medical Center. We will consolidate these operating rooms into one location, UC Medical Center, to improve patient care and staff efficiency. We will also add additional operating rooms.

  • New employee, patient parking

    As the region’s academic health center and a major hub for research, teaching and patient care, convenient, accessible parking has been one of our organization’s top challenges. In order to better accommodate our patients, visitors and our employees, we will build two new parking structures on existing land at UC Medical Center’s Ridgeway Tower: a 300-car parking garage for patients and families, and a 1,000-car employee garage.
