Charles Bush, M.D., is Professor of Internal Medicine and served as Director of the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital at The Ohio State University Medical Center from 2004-2012. He has been a long-time leader at OSU, serving as chief of staff from 1991 to 1993 and director of the cardiac catheterization labs for 26 years.

Dr. Bush’s research and clinical interests include interventional cardiology, pericarditis, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), thrombolytic therapy and coronary artery disease.

He received his bachelor of arts degree (magna cum laude) in 1962 from Kent State University and medical degree from Western Reserve University in 1965. Dr. Bush completed his post-graduate training, including residencies and fellowship, at The Ohio State University. He served as captain of the United States Air Force, Maxwell Air Force Base from 19671969.

Dr. Bush has authored more than 100 publications, abstracts and books/chapters. He serves on the editorial boards of several major journals including Annals of Internal Medicine, Chest, Journal of the American College of Cardiology and Catheterization and Cardiovascular Diagnosis. He has led many continuing education programs and national meeting presentations.

Dr. Bush is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the American College of Chest Physicians and the Society of Cardiac Angiography and Intervention and a member of the American Heart Association and American Medical Association.

From 19972000, he served as medical director for Integrated Clinical Enterprise, Inc.,

In addition to seeing patients at the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital, Dr. Bush also supports University Hospitals East heart program and the Medical Center’s regional heart affiliates.

Dr. Bush has received many honors and achievements. Among them, Professor of the Year by The Ohio State University College of Medicine and most recently, the Charles F. Wooley, M.D., Transmission of Excellence Teaching Award.
