OhioHealth opens outpatient medical office building in Upper Arlington
New facility includes primary care, relocation of neurological rehabilitation services
COLUMBUS, Ohio – OhioHealth announced today the opening of the OhioHealth Upper Arlington Medical Office Building. This new building relocates existing neurological rehabilitation services from Larwell Drive and has additional interior space for future growth of services, based on community need. Current services in the building include:
- Primary care (including an Express Appointment Center, offering same day appointments for existing patients)
- Neurological rehabilitation
- Lab services
- Primary care MDVIP practice, opening March 31, 2017
“The Upper Arlington Medical Office Building will serve two purposes for the community,” said Hugh Thornhill, president of OhioHealth Physician Group. “First, it provides growth space for primary care physician services. This creates improved access for community members to receive vital primary care close to home. Second, it allows us to expand our neurological rehabilitation program, which has experienced significant growth as a result of our nationally recognized neuroscience program at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital.”
“We grew up in Upper Arlington and I live here today,” said David DeWalt, DO. “We started in practice years ago in this community and are thrilled to be back. We look forward to providing quality, convenient healthcare right here in UA.”
“Many of our patients currently travel from Upper Arlington and now we are able to provide them with a location closer to where they live,” said Mark DeWalt, DO. “We look forward to serving them and meeting new patients from UA and its surrounding communities.”
The 25,000 square foot building is located on the northwest quadrant of Tremont and Fishinger Road. OhioHealth has invested roughly $3.4 million into the Upper Arlington community for this facility. The building is opening six weeks ahead of schedule.
OhioHealth and OhioHealth family medicine physician, Richard J. Seidt, II, MD, have recently affiliated with MDVIP, the leader in personalized healthcare, to offer a new option for primary care.
With a focus on personalized prevention and wellness, MDVIP is a unique approach to primary care that allows OhioHealth and Dr. Seidt to expand the medical resources available to patients. Each patient who enrolls in the practice will receive a comprehensive health risk assessment and annual wellness program with advanced screenings, diagnostic tests and a customized action plan addressing key areas from heart health, nutrition and fitness to emotional well-being and management of chronic illness. There is an annual fee for the extensive wellness program which includes preventive services not covered by most health insurance plans.
Neurological rehabilitation services will move from its current location on Larwell Drive to the new facility, effective January 30, 2017.
This new facility will be home to a dedicated team of therapists providing specialized expertise in all aspects of neurologic rehabilitation. They will use their focused expertise to work closely with patients, their family members and physicians to achieve meaningfully improved patient outcomes. This state-of-the-art facility features an overhead physical therapy harness track system, a functional home, gaming and vision training technology, dizziness and vertigo treatment tools, private speech therapy and swallow treatment offices and more.
“We couldn’t be more excited about what this new facility means to the rehabilitation teams, our patients and their families,” said David Rupp, OhioHealth Director of Neurological Rehabilitation Services. “We had outgrown the space at our old location. Now, we have a new state-of-the-art facility matching the incredible talents of our therapy team. Our physical, occupational and speech therapists work so hard to get the very best outcomes for our patients. This new facility, and the technological advancements built into the space, allows for outstanding OhioHealth neurological care close to home.”
This facility is conveniently located less than two miles from the OhioHealth Neuroscience Center at Riverside Methodist Hospital.
In addition to neurological rehabilitation, Upper Arlington Medical Office Building will also be home to orthopedic physical therapy. Physical therapists will work with patients to treat back pain, ankle sprains and much more.
