Cincinnati is ranked fourth on’s annual study of America’s Healthiest Cities.

Last year we were in tenth place.

The study used three questions to assess the health of a city:  Are the residents fit and healthy?  Is medical care accessible and high quality?  Do residents have health insurance? 

Cincinnati saw an increase in highly rated doctors and percentage of population with health insurance. The three cities that are healthier than us:  Minneapolis, Washington D.C. and Boston. 

The least healthy cities: Memphis, Oklahoma City, and San Antonio.
