Berger Pursuing Ballot Measure to Explore Expanded Relationship With OhioHealth
Berger Health System is pursuing a ballot measure that would privatize the hospital and allow it to explore opportunities to partner with a larger health system like OhioHealth. As a longstanding partner of Berger, OhioHealth is open to exploring a strengthened relationship with the hospital.
As exclusive strategic partners, OhioHealth and Berger share a vision to keep high-quality care in Pickaway County and ensure Berger continues to serve Circleville and surrounding communities for decades to come.
Over the years, the partnership has helped Berger expand services and provide greater access to specialists typically found only in larger city hospitals.
Patients at Berger have access to OhioHealth cardiologists and an electrophysiologist who provide advanced heart and vascular care. OhioHealth has also opened a vascular clinic and an arrhythmia and device clinic at Berger to support patients with abnormal heart rhythms.
The partnership has brought to Berger an OhioHealth medical oncologist who brings the latest cancer care and treatments to Pickaway County.
Berger is also a member of the OhioHealth Stroke Network, a telemedicine partnership that enables an earlier stroke diagnosis and intervention to ensure the best possible outcomes in patients and offers OhioHealth’s Delay the Disease™ program designed to delay the onset of Parkinson’s disease.
These are just a few of examples of how OhioHealth’s relationship with Berger is keeping care closer to where residents of Circleville and Pickaway County live and work and is positioning Berger to continue to deliver high-quality care and be a vital community asset for years to come.
