Magruder History

Howard Magruder, a banker and resident of Port Clinton, established the Magruder Trust before his death in 1937, and it was with those funds that H.B. Magruder Memorial Hospital (Magruder Hospital) opened in 1940.  Magruder is a nonprofit 25 bed Critical Access Hospital serving a rural population as the only hospital in Ottawa County.  Magruder remains an independent community hospital with approximately 400 highly trained employees and is led by President & CEO Nick Marsico, Chief Nursing Officer Kim Schreiner, Chief Financial Officer Julie Georgoff and Executive Assistant Pat Peters, with oversight from our 15 member Board of Trustees.

Magruder Hospital Again Earns 5-Star Rating from CMS

CMS 5 Star RatingMagruder Hospital has once again achieved a five-star rating, the highest ranking possible, for overall quality of care from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). An overall star rating is based on how well a hospital performs across different areas of quality such as treating heart attacks and pneumonia, readmission rates, safety and timeliness of care, and overall patient experience.

Magruder’s rating is notable because it ranks the hospital among the top 10% of hospitals in the state of Ohio.

“Our patients are at the center of everything we do and these ratings show that our team is providing the right care for our patients, in the right ways and for the right reasons: to save lives,” said Nick Marsico, Magruder Hospital President & CEO. “It is gratifying to see that the hard work and commitment of our physicians and healthcare professionals has been recognized as being among our nation’s best. This designation from CMS shows we are delivering on our mission statement of Improving Lives Together.

CMS rated more than 3,000 hospitals across the nation on a scale of one- to five-stars. Medicare based the star ratings on measures that include patient reviews and outcomes and infection rates. Any ranking above three stars is considered to be an above-average score. The government agency created the rating system to help consumers evaluate and compare quality care among hospitals in their communities.
