About Ross Heart Hospital

The Ohio State University is at the forefront of heart care, with cardiac specialists working side by side with researchers across campus to uncover the secrets of heart disease.

Every minute, one person in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.

That's why some of Ohio State's best and brightest minds are dedicated to preventing and treating heart disease. Researchers and physicians are studying diagnosis and early detection, pioneering new treatment options and preventing heart disease altogether--possible only on a major academic medical and scientific campus that houses the nationally ranked Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital and the Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute, one of the nation’s only free-standing heart research facilities.

Working together, Ohio State researchers and physicians have developed dozens of cutting-edge clinical trials and treatment options. Scientists are developing life-saving technologies used around the world, from minimally invasive surgery to new transplant options; doctors are pioneering personalized health care—care that is focused on individual patients rather than on diseases. Ohio State is among the nation's top 100 hospitals for heart attack outcomes and was recognized in the 2012 survey by U.S.News & World Report as a leader in cardiology and heart surgery, ranking 29th out of nearly 5,000 hospitals around the country.

Ohio State’s Ross Heart Hospital combines the latest technology with outstanding, patient-focused care to create the best possible healing environment and outcome for patients. Each floor of the 290,000 square foot, 150-bed hospital is dedicated to a specific service, such as cardiac surgery or vascular medicine which allows specialized care for every patient. The personalized approach to health care consistently earns Ross Heart Hospital high scores in patient satisfaction surveys conducted by Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS).

The 500 researchers, clinicians and students at Ohio State’s Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute (DHLRI) are actively pursuing discoveries that will translate into medicines and patient care therapies. Ohio State’s DHLRI is home to more than 135 active cardiovascular clinical trials, setting Ohio State apart as a national leader in the field of translational research that quickly moves research discoveries to the patient bedside or clinic. The collaboration between physicians and researchers in training young investigators allows DHRLI to develop international leaders in scientific discovery.
