The Jewish Hospital Logo

Jewish Hospital was the first Jewish hospital in the United States, established in 1850 as a result of the cholera epidemic and the need to treat poor Jews in Cincinnati.  Today, Jewish Hospital provides care to people of every race, ethnicity and religious belief. In 1997, the hospital moved from its original location in Avondale to its current home in Kenwood. Jewish Hospital is a full-service, acute care hospital that has world-class services conveniently located in Cincinnati’s northeast suburbs.

Jewish Hospital was named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals® in the category of teaching hospitals by Evanston, Ill.-based Solucient®, the nation's leading source of health care information products in 2006. This distinctive honor is bestowed upon just 100 hospitals every year, recognizing excellence in health care.
