Program History

The Jewish Hospital — Mercy Health is the oldest Jewish hospital in the country, having been established in 1850 "for the purpose of alleviating the indigent, poor, sick of the Jewish faith" and to prevent deathbed conversions. It has been a tertiary referring hospital throughout its existence and remains so today. In 1997, the clinical operations of the hospital were moved from the "Pill Hill" location in Avondale to the Northeast suburb of Cincinnati, in Kenwood. The Jewish Hospital became part of Mercy Health in 2010. In 2012, The Jewish Hospital was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® in the category of teaching hospitals by Solucient® for its educational programs. A new breast center opened in August 2013 and new, state-of-the-art patient tower (housing orthopaedics and neurosurgery, ICU, blood cancer care, outpatient surgery and ED) was built in 2016.
