History of Holmes Hospital

Built in 1929 in honor of Dr. Christian R. Holmes', who died in 1920, Holmes Hospital was established as a private facility in connection with the Cincinnati General Hospital. At Holmes, doctors and professors from the General Hospital and College of Medicine could see and operate on their private patients. Still part of UC Health, Holmes no longer accommodates inpatient procedures. Currently, the hospital houses the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. It also serves as an outpatient office for plastic and reconstructive surgery and houses a sleep lab.
