Our region is fortunate to have some great medical facilities located right in our own backyard. Community Mercy Health Partner’s Springfield Regional Medical Center and Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital are both working very hard to be the best the region has to offer in quality healthcare. That hard work is paying off as each of these facilities continues to strive for excellence.
Springfield Regional Medical Center (SRMC) is one of the newest hospitals in the region having opened in November 2011.
The hospital is noted for cardiac care, surgical services, acute rehabilitation care and other services. The state-of-the-art facility is designed with the privacy and dignity of patients in mind with 254 private in-patient rooms and 41 private exam rooms in the emergency department.
Next door to SRMC is the Springfield Regional Cancer Center that offers cutting-edge cancer treatment, along with wellness classes, education and support services. Mercy Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed critical access facility in Urbana with a broad range of inpatient and outpatient services.
As a member of Mercy Health- the largest not-for-profit health system in Ohio and one of the largest in the nation – CMHP is the largest employer in the area with more than 2,600 employees.
Hospital CEO, Paul Hiltz, has developed an impressive team that is working closely with every aspect of the healthcare continuum in order to deliver exceptional care as CMHP seeks to meet the evolving healthcare needs of the region. Their efforts and those of a dedicated staff are helping to improve the patient experience.
Ohio Valley is a local physician owned surgical hospital that opened in downtown Springfield in 2009. The doctors and staff of Ohio Valley built a vision around quality, and are dedicated to clinical excellence, patient safety and making every visit a welcoming experience. Ohio Valley recently earned a 5-Star Rating, the highest possible patient satisfaction score as part of the new CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid) rating system. Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital was one of 15 hospitals out of 170 in Ohio to receive the highest rating.
The downtown specialty hospital had been a brownfield site before it was redeveloped. In 2012, Ohio Valley opened a $5 million medical office building to the west, which houses related services, imaging, physical therapy and pre-admission testing.
Ohio Valley CEO, Steve Eisentrager, has done an incredible job helping to birth the surgical hospital and continues to grow a successful organization which now includes more than 250 employees.
Both hospitals share some of the same physicians and are working together to make Springfield the best choice for you and your loved ones health related needs. Yes, our community is blessed to have many growing, excellent healthcare offerings right in our own backyard. We simply need to take advantage of these great facilities when we need them.
