A legacy of healing, in the heart of Cincinnati

At The Jewish Hospital — Mercy Health, we’re proud of our legacy as the first Jewish hospital in the United States, founded in 1850 to serve the Jewish community of Cincinnati. Yet since the beginning, we’ve been privileged to welcome and care for people of all faiths. To this day, our doctors, residents, nurses and staff remain focused on delivering compassionate care and the best outcomes for patients and their families.  

Located at 4777 E. Galbraith Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236, 513-686-3000.

The Jewish Hospital — Mercy Health was founded in 1850, when a cholera epidemic sickened thousands of Cincinnatians. The Jewish community saw a need to provide care for poor Jews, and founded the first Jewish hospital in the United States. Since its early days, The Jewish Hospital has always welcomed and cared for people of every faith.

The Jewish Hospital’s legacy of teaching the next generation of physicians dates back more than 100 years, and today, residents in surgery, medicine, podiatry and pharmacy all train at The Jewish Hospital.

The Jewish Hospital is located in Kenwood, a Cincinnati suburb that provides convenient access from around the Tristate.
