Came to Ohio State from Duke University

Marti Taylor is a nationally recognized healthcare administrator whose leadership of Ohio State’s Ross Heart Hospital is enhancing the quality of care at Ohio State.

Like Marti, the world’s best and brightest physicians and researchers are coming to Ohio State to create a new model for health care that is predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory. We call it P4 Medicine.

What attracted me to Ohio State? I was excited by the chance to work with the staff and physicians of the Ross Heart Hospital and help shape the future of health care. As an administrator, I use my background and experience as a nurse to lead our teams through this dynamic time in health care. Ohio State is advancing heart and vascular patient care in many innovative ways and the University’s Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute is doing some of the most amazing biomedical research in the country.

How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? One area where Ohio State is leading personalized health care is in radial catheterization, opening blocked arteries through the wrist instead of the leg. Ross Heart Hospital cardiologists were some of the first in the country to adopt a radial-first approach, which has reduced patient complications and recovery times. We also recently opened our new radial lounge, which gives these patients a more comfortable setting for recovery.

But for Ohio State... central Ohio would not be driving the future of health care. Personalized health care will ultimately reduce costs and improve outcomes, and Ohio State is leading the charge.

Ohio State’s reputation for excellence is drawing world-class talent to Columbus. We have attracted more than 215 experts in 2 years, and 87 percent of central Ohio’s Best Doctors are Ohio State faculty. Through their skill and dedication, we are delivering on our promise to improve people’s lives, and giving central Ohioans access to the very best care.
