• Richard M Ross Heart Hospital
Ohio State’s heart and vascular experts offer the best care in central Ohio. No other hospitals or heart centers in central Ohio are ranked among the nation’s best by U.S.News & World Report. Only Ohio State.

Ohio State’s Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital is a 150-bed facility that combines the latest technology with patient-focused care to create the best possible healing environment. Each floor is dedicated to a specific service, such as cardiac surgery or vascular medicine, and we offer universal patient rooms. This means rooms are designed to be adaptable, allowing most patients to stay in the same private room throughout their hospitalization rather than having to move from room to room as their medical needs change.
