OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital Turns 10
A decade after opening its doors – Dublin Methodist grows in size and services, offering patient-focused care in world-class setting
OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital, the last full-service hospital built in central Ohio, turns 10 years old January 8, 2018.
In these 10 years, Dublin Methodist Hospital has truly grown into a destination facility that continues to meet the community need for quality health care in an innovative setting. Over the decade of operation, the hospital has expanded in a number of services - from adding women’s health beds, to an expansion and launch of the robotic surgery program, and most recently the addition of 20 new beds on the hospital’s fourth floor.
“I am so proud of what we have built here in Dublin, and the amazing connection between our associates and patients,” Dublin Methodist Hospital President Steve Bunyard said. “To have earned the trust of the community, to be a strong partner here in Dublin, and to improve the health of those we serve is such a privilege. We have great people at Dublin Methodist Hospital and are certainly excited not only about the last 10 years, but looking forward to the next 10.”
Cheryl Herbert, current OhioHealth senior vice president, regional operations served as the first president of Dublin Methodist Hospital from 2004-2011.
“This milestone is a testament to the outstanding physicians, associates, volunteers and donors who together make Dublin Methodist Hospital a world-class facility,” Herbert said. “We knew 10 years ago what we were building was special. Our team’s dedication to the patients and families we serve has made Dublin’s history of excellence possible.”
140 associates and 12 volunteers have been with the hospital from day one.
Dublin Methodist has continued to grow in many areas of service to the community during the 10 years. The Women’s Center and Labor and Delivery Department has 34 post-partum rooms, nine private delivery suites, plus a dedicated C-section room. The number of births at Dublin Methodist has grown each of the 10 years – from 800 in year one, to now more than 2000 births in each of the past 2 years.
The hospital has eight operating rooms and 80 beds. In 10 years, surgeons have performed more than 57,000 procedures in operating rooms at the facility, using state-of-the-art equipment.
“Patients dealing with injuries or pain can find that relief and get on the road to recovery with some of the best and brightest surgeons and surgical teams in the business,” Bunyard said. “We have expanded surgical spine procedures, seen growth in foot and ankle surgeries, along with our very busy general surgery and orthopedic surgeries over these 10 years.”
Another major service to come on-line at Dublin Methodist during these 10 years includes full-time cardiology. Patients can receive cardiac imaging, and utilize the diagnostic catheter lab right on the Dublin Methodist Hospital campus.
Dublin Methodist Hospital also integrates advanced technology and wellness-focused design to serve patients and their families. Interior features include live trees, multi-story waterfalls and natural lighting throughout the hospital. The campus has 13 gardens, including courtyard and rooftop spaces. The hospital has also been recognized as one of the Hospitals & Health Networks’ “Most Wired” hospitals for meeting rigorous IT criteria for the last nine years consecutively, as well as quality and patient safety awards by national non-profit organizations.
