Ohio Medical and Biohazardous Waste Disposal
Ohio is a place to aim for the stars and shoot for the moon. It’s a land that produces inventors, innovators, and space explorers. It’s the place where the woman who Abraham Lincoln credited for sparking the Civil War resided, and the place eight presidents came from.
Ohio is where sports legends like LeBron James come from and where Hollywood stars like Halle Berry are born. It is home to two professional football and baseball teams and one of each professional basketball, hockey and soccer teams.
Ohio borders Lake Erie to the north and the Ohio River, the largest tributary of the Mississippi, to the south. It houses two of the Midwest’s top 10 largest cities and is ranked seventh in the country for largest population.
Ohio is simply a place of important people, places and things.
Who Comes From Ohio?
Thomas Edison: One of America’s most famous inventors, Thomas Edison, was born in Milan, Ohio in 1847. He would go on to invent the telegraph and the light bulb among a myriad of other things. By the end of his life, he had been awarded 1,093 total patents.
Harriet Beecher Stowe: Legend has it Abraham Lincoln recognized Harriet Beecher Stowe as the woman who wrote the novel that triggered the Civil War. Though she penned many books, she was most famous for her huge success with anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin that earned her the compliment from Lincoln. She resided and raised her large family in Cincinnati from 1832 to the 1850’s. Her home is now open to the public for tours.
Neil Armstrong: The first man to step foot on the moon was born and raised in Ohio, moving all over the state during his lifetime. But Neil Armstrong wasn’t the only astronaut to call Ohio home. James Lovell Jr., who flew on Gemini 7 and 12, and Apollo 8 and 13, was from Ohio. So was John Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth.
Stephen Spielberg: One of Hollywood’s most famous directors, Stephen Spielberg was born in Ohio. He created Jaws, E.T. and Jurassic Park, along with Star Wars and Indian Jones Films. He won awards for Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan. His experience spans from cartoons to epic sagas to science fiction trilogies. Today his estimated net worth is more than $3 billion.
Presidents: Eight of the men who held the most powerful position in the land came from Ohio. They included: William Henry Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft and Warren G. Harding.
Medical Accolades: If it’s not enough to excel in science, politics, entertainment, and even space exploration, Ohio also excels in medicine. In 2015, Cleveland Clinic was ranked fifth best hospital in the nation, following Massachusetts General Hospital, the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and UCLA Medical Center. It ranked number one in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery, number 2 in the nation for Gastroenterology and GI surgery, nephrology and urology. In total, the facility is ranked in 20 adult specialties and 10 pediatric specialties.
The College of Medicine at Ohio State University ranks in the top 50 best medical schools for both research and primary care, as decided by U.S. News and World Report. Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center are also held in high regard among medical schools.
In 2012, health care researchers and firms in the Cleveland metro-area nabbed more money in investments than any of its big-city Midwestern neighbors including Chicago and Minneapolis, almost doubling the investments that were applied the year before, according to an annual BioEnterprise report.
Who Does the Dirty Work?
Ohio has a reputation to protect when it comes to their healthcare industry. Top doctors, hospitals and researchers are held to the highest standard, as they should be. But some aspects of the medical industry are less appealing than performing surgery or searching for a cure for cancer. Aspects like deciding how to handle medical waste disposal.
That’s where MedPro Disposal comes in.
