You deserve the highest-quality care in a safe environment; an essential part of delivering personalized health care.

As an academic medical center, a team of healthcare professionals will be visiting you frequently, from residents to patient care associates to nurses and attending physicians. Our goal is to provide you with the safest care at all times.

You will be asked many questions, and we double-check to ensure you’re always safe. Although this might seem like we’re duplicating efforts or we’re not talking to each other, that’s not the case. These repetitive checks are the precautions we take to provide you with an excellent safety experience.

Other organizations think we do a good job of keeping you safe, too.

The Ohio State University Hospital and the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute are among the safest and most effective hospitals in the country, according to The Leapfrog Group. The 45 hospitals on the 2009 list represent more than 1,200 hospitals across the country involved in the Leapfrog project.

The Leapfrog Group is an initiative driven by major companies and other large private and public businesses that buy health care to improve the safety, quality and affordability of health care for Americans. For more information, visit The Leapfrog Group.
