Physician-owned surgical hospital inks joint venture with 2 Ohio health systems

Alan Condon -  

Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital, an independent hospital in Springfield, has affiliated with Columbus-based OhioHealth and Dayton-based Premier Health, which will both share ownership in the facility with 35 physicians.

"This partnership brings needed resources to successfully innovate in a changing healthcare landscape while allowing the doctors to maintain independence and focus on clinical excellence," Steve Eisentrager, president of Ohio Valley, said in a Jan. 4 news release. 

The joint venture will identify opportunities to expand access to healthcare services in Springfield, but there are no immediate plans to adjust services at the hospital. 

OhioHealth President and CEO Steve Markovich, MD, said, "This is a unique opportunity for us to work collectively to strengthen Ohio Valley, enhance their current offerings and put them in a position for continued growth and success."

Founded in 2009, Ohio Valley Surgical Hospital provides inpatient and outpatient care in more than 16 specialties, including spine surgery, orthopedics, gastroenterology, general surgery and urology.
