Wexner Medical Center
Part of one of the most comprehensive health sciences campuses in the country, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (WMC) consists of the Ohio State Health System, the College of Medicine, the Health Sciences Library, and the Faculty Group Practice. It is one of the largest and most diverse academic medical centers in the country and the only academic medical center in central Ohio. As one of the Midwest’s leading healthcare providers, Ohio State Wexner Medical Center is committed to continuously setting the standard for world-class care.
Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center offers healthcare services in virtually every specialty and subspecialty in medicine. Thousands of patients visit each month for treatments and services they cannot find elsewhere. Providing access to healthcare information is central to the research, education, and patient care mission. Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s seven hospitals and its network of community-based offices and care centers manage more than 1.91 million outpatient visits each year.
In 2019, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center was named to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” list for the 27th consecutive year. U.S. News consistently ranks Ohio State as the top hospital in central Ohio with nationally ranked specialties, including the Ear, Nose and Throat program that is ranked third in the country. Becker’s Hospital Review selected Ohio State for its 2018 list of “100 Great Hospitals in America” for excellence in quality patient care and clinical research, leadership in innovation, and its rankings and awards. The Leapfrog Group has once again honored the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center with an “A” in its Spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for being among the safest hospitals in the nation.
The Ohio State University Health Sciences Center—with colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Optometry, Public Health, and Veterinary Medicine all in close proximity—is adjacent to the tremendous resources and expertise of The Ohio State University campus in Columbus. This proximity fosters collaborations with other university departments, which makes Ohio State unique in the United States in its potential to promote scientific partnerships and the direct translation of research discoveries into new medical therapies and technologies. Such efforts have resulted in the Mathematical Biosciences Institute and the Ohio State Biomedical Engineering Center. Dual degree programs such as MD/MBA, MD/JD and MD/PhD have been developed with the Fisher College of Business, the College of Law, and the College of Public Health.
The 14th-most populous city in the nation, Columbus is Ohio’s state capital and a center of technology, commerce, and education. In addition to The Ohio State University, Columbus is home to multiple universities and colleges as well as the Battelle Memorial Institute, the world's largest private research and development foundation.
In 2016, Money Magazine named Columbus one of the nation’s “6 Best Big Cities.” Forbes has given Columbus an “A rating” as one of the top U.S. cities for business. In addition to The Ohio State University, major employers include Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, American Electric Power, L Brands, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Honda of America, Kroger, Whirlpool, Huntington Bancshares, Abbott Nutrition, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, OhioHealth, Cardinal Health, and Quantum Health.
Columbus prides itself on a diverse population, a thriving visual and performing arts scene, exciting sporting events, a strong network of public and private schools, numerous public parks and recreational areas, and an array of fine restaurants, museums, and cultural activities.
