Apr. 15, 2022

CINCINNATI – UC Health is pleased to announce that University of Cincinnati Medical Center and West Chester Hospital have both been recognized among a listing of the World’s Best Hospitals, recently published by Newsweek magazine.


Each were recognized for the world-class clinical care they provide to the Greater Cincinnati Region and beyond.

As the region’s only adult academic health system, UC Medical Center was ranked No. 2 in Cincinnati, No. 10 in the state of Ohio and No. 132 in the U.S. This is the second consecutive year that UC Medical Center has received international rankings from Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals program. UC Medical Center serves as the region’s only Level I trauma center and is a referral destination for the most advanced cancer and neuroscience care and treatment.

West Chester Hospital was formally recognized by Newsweek for its leadership role in providing excellent clinical care within the northern Cincinnati and Dayton regions. West Chester Hospital is a Magnet® hospital, recognized for nursing excellence, and is a verified Level III trauma center. 

Both hospitals were included on the list of World’s Best Hospitals based upon data sources from Newsweek and Statista, a global provider of market and consumer data, and originate from recommendations made by more than 80,000 medical experts across the globe. To compile the rankings, these experts reviewed survey results focused on clinical specialties, procedures and conditions as well as medical key performance indicators (KPIs) and patient feedback.

“We are extremely proud that our hospitals have been included on this prestigious list,” stated Rick Hinds, interim president & CEO and executive vice president and CFO. “We appreciate the tireless efforts of our entire team to provide quality, safe, compassionate care every day. It is truly our teams of employees and physicians who enable us to be ranked among the world’s best hospitals for clinical excellence.”
