Southern Ohio Medical Center Votes to Stay as OhioHealth Affiliate

The board of directors at Southern Ohio Medical Center in Portsmouth has decided not to remerge with OhioHealth but to remain an affiliate of the Columbus-based system, according to a Columbus Business First report.

SOMC will remain an independent, community-owned hospital, but its affiliation with OhioHealth will let it maintain access to the system's wide array of services, such as its telemedicine network.

OhioHealth had owned 222-bed SOMC for more than 20 years until both parties agreed SOMC should leave the system in 2006, according to the report.
