We also work collaboratively with other Ohio State medical specialty areas to provide personalized, high quality care that helps patients achieve optimal outcomes.

Ohio State was nationally recognized in 2015 as among only 30 hospitals in the United States, and the only adult hospital in Ohio, to earn designation as a Pancreas Center of Excellence by the National Pancreas Foundation (NPF). NPF centers must pass a rigorous audit review to determine the hospital’s focus on multidisciplinary treatment of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
