With 96-patient beds at OCH Regional Medical Center, it might seem that the county-owned and operated hospital would provide little more than emergency care. However, nothing could be further from the truth at this primary care facility,. Each year, thousands of patients from a seven-county area rely on OCH for their healthcare needs. Because of its local ownership, OCH invests its resources back into its facilities, its medical technology and equipment, and its communities in order to impact virtually every facet of life for the region's residents.
The OCH South Tower houses our emergency services suite and up-to-date surgery rooms, where several hundred procedures are performed each month. During the construction of the South Tower in 2007, enhancements and cosmetic modernization were also completed in pharmacy, x-ray, recovery, laboratory, and sterile supply areas, along with a new outpatient admissions and waiting area. Other features include:
- Center for Sleep Medicine
- Paramedic ambulance services for area residents
- CPR, First Aid and Safe Sitter classes
- OCH HealthPlex, for rehab services department, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs, and the Wellness Connection, a total fitness center
