Five years ago, we were proud to change the face of emergency care in Northwest Ohio with a full-service, free-standing emergency and diagnostic center in Sylvania, OH. Since then, the center has cared for countless area residents with around the clock emergency care.
Mercy Health – Sylvania Medical Center opened its doors to patients on Oct. 5, 2015. Its goal has always been to bring high quality, compassionate emergency care services closer to those living in surrounding communities.
Since opening, this facility has cared for more than 55,000 emergency room patients who spend less than six minutes waiting to see a provider on average. Patients have been so impressed with the care provided here. In fact, Sylvania Medical Center has ranked in the top 1% of emergency rooms in the country for “overall rating ER care” all five years.
“Sylvania Medical Center was designed with the intention of creating the ultimate patient experience,” says Chris Goliver, MD, medical director of Sylvania Emergency Services. “Attention to detail, patient comfort and time to treatment remain the highest priorities for our team. We continue to work to make the emergency experience as easy and pleasant as possible.”
With 12 exam rooms, a laboratory and imaging center, the medical center is staffed by board-certified and board-eligible emergency room physicians. There is also a full team of experienced care givers who deliver comprehensive emergency services around the clock.
“Having the full spectrum of emergency care including in house lab and imaging is part of our vision for comprehensive care,” Dr. Goliver shares.
In fact, laboratory services team at Sylvania Medical Center has conducted more than 120,000 tests over the past five years. Additionally, more than 22,000 imaging studies were conducted.
“Being part of a larger health system allows our patients better access to any follow-up, specialist or other services, such as rehab. This allows their care teams to work together, collaboratively,” Dr. Goliver added. “That is truly valuable and part of our promise in making health care easier.”
