Several departments at The Ohio State University Medical Center are among the best in the country for quality, according to HealthGrades.

The hospitals received Excellence Awards for critical care and neurosciences. HealthGrades analyzed objective mortality and complication rates across 27 different medical procedures and diagnoses at all of the nation’s 5,000 nonfederal hospitals using 40 million hospitalizations records obtained from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
