University Hospitals has again been distinguished by the U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of the country’s best hospitals, ranking in 12 medical specialties.
In 1993, University Hospitals developed a new vision, a new strategy and a new model for healthcare delivery. This new vision called for University Hospitals to better meet the healthcare needs of a significant portion of northeast Ohio through geographic expansion and an increase in the types of services we offer.
In the process University Hospitals was transformed from a traditional, single-site academic medical center into broad-based University Hospitals:
Today, University Hospitals is one of the nation’s leading health care systems, providing high-quality, patient-centered medical care at locations throughout Northeast Ohio.
Committed to advanced care and advanced caring, University Hospitals offers the region’s largest network of primary care physicians, outpatient centers and hospitals. The System also includes a network of specialty care physicians, skilled nursing, elder health, rehabilitation and home care services, managed care and insurance programs, occupational health & wellness, and the most comprehensive behavioral health services in the region.
The System’s 1032-bed, tertiary medical center, University Hospitals, is an affiliate of Case Western Reserve University. Included in UH are University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, among the nation’s best children’s hospitals; University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, part of National Cancer Institute-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at Case Western Reserve University (the nation's highest designation); and University Hospitals MacDonald Women’s Hospital, Ohio’s only hospital for women.
More than 24,000 physicians and employees constitute University Hospitals and its partnership hospitals, ranking it Northeast Ohio’s second largest private sector employer. UH performs more than 4.5 million outpatient procedures and nearly 63,000 inpatient discharges annually.
University Hospitals’ goal is to provide comprehensive primary and community-based care—the kind of healthcare people need most—as well as access to the highest quality specialty care when necessary.
