UC Health, the University of Cincinnati’s health system, includes three hospitals, a 700-plus member subspecialty and primary care physician network, an long-term rehabilitation center and outpatient mental health facility. The University of Cincinnati Medical Center (formerly University Hospital)—the system’s flagship facility—is ranked one of the best hospitals in the region by U.S. News & World Report.
Cancer care is delivered primarily at the UC Health Barrett Center in Clifton, with satellite locations on the UC Health West Chester medical campus. The facility offers advanced cancer care through screening, diagnostics, and treatment services, and is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. The physician specialists (medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists as well as diagnostic radiologists) who practice at the Barrett Center are the same faculty who educate new physicians at the UC College of Medicine. The breast imaging program was first American College of Radiology-accredited breast imaging Center of Excellence in Cincinnati. It remains the only facility in Cincinnati accredited for breast MRI.
As a teaching institution, UC Health offers patients access to the latest technologies and information. Patients also benefit from multidisciplinary clinical care teams who coordinate care and help patients navigate the complicated health system. In addition, UC Health and UC work together to be a cancer education resource for patients, physicians, health professionals, and the Tri-State community.
