Why Choose Us

Every Minute Counts: Treating Heart Conditions Quickly

Our specially trained cardiologists and vascular surgeons use catheter-based procedures to diagnose and treat heart disease, vascular disease, and valve disease in our two cardiac catheterization (cath) labs. Our cath lab fully functions 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so patients can be treated immediately in an emergency.

Bringing Our Stroke Experts to You

When an individual is experiencing a stroke, quick and effective treatment is the best hope for survival and recovery. Our telestroke technology connects immediately from our Belpre Medical Campus and Marietta Memorial Hospital Campus EDs to stroke experts at OhioHealth when necessary. Using high-resolution TV monitors and cameras, a stroke specialist has a virtual presence at our patient’s bedside.

Award-Winning Care at Four Convenient Locations

When it comes to our patients’ care, we are leaders in patient satisfaction, with our Belpre emergency team continuously in the top 10% in the nation. Know that no matter which of our four emergency rooms our patients choose, they will have access to our expert care within minutes with the level of expertise and compassionate care they’ve come to expect.

Coordinated Care with Specialty Providers

Patients will receive immediate access to our emergency providers and team members who collaborate directly, when needed, with our specialty services including surgery, orthopedics, neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology, and internal medicine. When there is a major trauma and our experts need additional support, patients will be quickly transported to one of our outlying Level I or Level II trauma centers.
