Ohiohealth shifting focus to outpatient services

July 10, 2014

Because of the changing healthcare needs of the community, Ohiohealth is shifting its focus to outpatient services which will result in a new, state-of-the-art facility in Nelsonville, Ohio, according to an article on the Columbus CEO website.

Inpatient services at Doctors Hospital Nelsonville will cease before the end of this year, although the emergency department will remain open.

The system is in the early planning stages for this facility. Construction is expected to begin in 2015 and take between 18 to 24 months to complete. 

Due to the age of the existing hospital building and infrastructure, Ohiohealth will build a new facility from the ground up that will enhance the patient experience and be more efficient, according to system officials.

OhioHealth will work with the community with the goal of repurposing the current hospital building for another use.
