Mount Carmel Health System, which includes Mount Carmel West and Mount Carmel St. Ann’s celebrates over 125 years of medical service to the central Ohio community. Mount Carmel Health System is home to a rich variety of educational programs imparting knowledge and wisdom to people in the health professions. Physicians and medical students work collaboratively with the Mount Carmel College of Nursing which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2003. Mount Carmel Health System’s educational environment is enhanced with involvement of medical students in addition to our six post graduate residency programs and Colorectal Surgery Fellowship Program.
Mount Carmel Health System is a major clinical teaching site for our affiliate schools: The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State.
