Columbus is one of the largest cities in Ohio. Home to Ohio State University, the city has a high population of students and tourists, both of which must be considered when providing optimum healthcare.
One problem that Ohio healthcare faces is that nearly 14 percent of residents are uninsured. This statistic may not include the temporary residents as a result of educational facilities, although many of these individuals will seek medical care during their time living in Ohio.

Our convenient online course allows medical professionals the flexibility that they need in order certify or recertify for their ACLS card. Individuals who would rather pursue their certification card locally may benefit from our list of resources for Ohio residents.
The Ohio State University Medical Center is known for being one of the largest and most diverse medical centers in the United States. The hospital was founded in the mid 1830’s when healthcare education was just beginning. It wasn’t until the 1910’s that Ohio State became involved and the Ohio State University Medical Center found its place. The education and research components of the medical center are top notch. There are more than one dozen research institutes and facilities available, 20 laboratories, and more. Education is of the utmost importance and the faculty and staff is prepared to keep the record of Ohio State’s top 30 College of Medicine standard.
Dedicated to the community, Ohio State University’s Medical Center contributes significant donations to charity care programs. In 2010 alone, they donated $177 million toward community efforts. They also offer outreach, free or reduced cost clinics for the uninsured and indigent, and community education programs. Quality service is not sacrificed within these programs either and the Ohio State commitment to quality translates into every aspect of their healthcare goals.
