  Pain & Spine Center:   May 23, 2019 Edition  
     Southwoods Health celebrated the opening of its new facility, the Southwoods Pain and Spine Center, 250 DeBartolo Place during an open house held on Sun., May 19.
      “We created this facility to meet the needs of those affected by pain right here at home,” said Ed Muransky, chief executive officer of Southwoods Health. “After talking with our patients, their families and local primary care physicians, we recognized the need to bring these services together at one site at our Southwoods campus.”
      Open house festivities included guided tours, a chance to meet physicians and staff, giveaways and refreshments.
      As one of Ohio’s most rapidly-expanding and award-winning healthcare systems, Southwoods Health remains focused on delivering and enhancing healthcare in the region.
      “We wanted to welcome the community into this beautiful 40,000 sq.-ft. facility so they can see for themselves the highest quality of service and care Southwoods believes in,” Muransky said.
      Inside the facility is about $3 million in equipment---All levels of chronic pain treatment under one roof.
      The Southwoods Pain & Spine Center open house provided visitors with a first-hand look at the treatment the facility that will provide for a variety of pain and spine conditions including neck and back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic pelvic pain, herniated discs, compression fractures, nerve damage, complex regional pain syndrome, neuropathy, as well as pain associated with arthritis, cancer, joints, muscle spasms and shingles.
      Spine, pain management, orthopaedic and rheumatology physicians, as well as their advanced practice nurses, are offering appointments at the new facility.
      “This expert team is committed to working together to make a difference in the lives of people who are suffering from chronic pain,” explained Muransky. “The center is designed to help patients receive the complete care they need, from diagnosis to treatment, in one convenient location.”
      With this new addition, Southwoods now employs nearly 1,000 area residents, continuing to expand its roots in the community by bringing jobs to the Mahoning Valley.
      “We are a locally owned healthcare system,” said Muransky. “We know firsthand some of the most hardworking people live right here, and we are excited to provide a place for them to work.”
      Muransky called the new facility ‘a win-win for our area.’
      “If Southwoods didn’t exist those patients would go to the Crystal Clinic in Akron, they’re going to Cleveland Clinic, they’re going to UPMC, as they have been, and all of those dollars leave our area,” said Muransky. “So if they stay here. It’s better for the patient, we bring doctors into the community, we employ 150 people just for Spine and Pain, and at the end of the day that means we need more people educated at YSU to fill those jobs.”
