The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Announces Affiliation

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus and Ohio Valley Health Services and Education — the parent company of Wheeling, W.Va.-based Ohio Valley Medical Center and Ohio Regional Hospital in Martins Ferry, Ohio — are affiliating to help improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of healthcare services in the Ohio Valley region.

Although the two health systems will remain independent under the affiliation agreement, they will work together to develop care options that are closer to home for Ohio Valley residents who would normally travel to Wexner Medical Center for highly-specialized treatments, according to a news release.

"We're proud to bring advanced, specialized care from a nationally ranked academic medical center to our patients and to serve a critical need in the Ohio Valley," said Michael J. Caruso, president and CEO of Ohio Valley Health Services and Education, in the news release. "Additionally, by working with Ohio State, we'll achieve greater efficiencies, lower costs and build a stronger community hospital system through shared electronic health records, group purchasing programs and other shared services."
