I am trying to compile my "emergency contacts" list and would like recommendations for the best local hospitals and emergency facilities.
Thank you for advice!

Unfortunately you did not indicate location. Cincinnati is loaded with superb hospitals and emergency treatment centers. That is one thing we are not deprived of.

This is not a recommendation, but I think I recall reading that University Hospital is the only hospital with around-the-clock availability of every type of trauma specialist there is. Or something like that. The point is that although University should be far down on most lists, if you're very seriously injured it's probably the place to be.

I've had two surgeries at Jewish since 2007, and for the first my only gripe was the abysmal quality of the food. When I returned in 2009 they had completely taken care of that problem. If I have to go to the hospital for some general reason, that would be my choice. Christ is supposed to have the best heart-related care; Good Sam seems to rate pretty low on a lot of rankings.

Yes, UC Medical Center is the only level one trauma center in the area.

Thank you, where can I find out the local hospital rankings?
Any urgent care place to recommend? I live in near Milford.

There's an urgent care place on Old Ohio 28 (not the bypass), just past I-275. I don't know who operates it.

The one I used (more often that I'd like, LOL) was on Ridge Avenue, near I-71. It's a bit of a drive for you. The docs were great, but they do come and go. I dunno if the place will survive all the construction/road realignments there.

Bethesda North and Jewish Hospitals may seem to be somewhat of a distance away. However, an ambulance could make the run up 275 from around Milford pretty quick. I believe the Mercy health care system now operates a comprehensive clinic (if not full-fledged hospital) in Anderson Township now.
Other than being born at the original Jewish Hospital, I've never had to have any emergency or inpatient care while living in - or, more recently, visiting - Greater Cincinnati. But my mother swears by rather than at Christ Hospital, and my sister was very pleased with the quality of care at Good Sam when she gave birth to my two younger nephews. The same sister has also been satisfied with Bethesda North after having had to make the untold numbers of trips there that having four active sons entails.

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Most trauma type injuries would be UC. The majority of the time you hear of a serious accident the news usually mentions UC as the place the victim was sent. My pick for a hospital is Bethesda North. I have been to the emergency room a couple of times for non life threatening injuries and have always been treated well. My father was in for surgery a couple of years ago and got very good treatment.

Anderson Hospital | Mercy Health

It has been open maybe 20 years or so ...
