Salem Hospital Expands to Better Serve Its Market

SALEM, Ohio – Salem Regional Medical Center began work on an outpatient pavilion at Firestone Farms TownCenter in Columbiana last year.

The project is part of the hospital’s plan to provide area residents with more convenient and cost-effective access to advanced procedures and treatment.

The three-story, 76,600-square-foot building will offer a surgery and procedure center, advanced imaging, an infusion center and physician offices, according to Michael Santillo, director of public relations. It will be completed in mid-2023.

The hospital currently provides a variety of services at its existing location in TownCenter, including the Columbiana Family Care Center, an imaging center and an immediate care center, which opened in June.

The immediate care center offers fast treatment for a wide range of minor illnesses and injuries. It has been especially beneficial in providing an alternative for those seeking non-urgent care during the recent COVID-19 surge, according to Santillo. It is open seven days a week.

The hospital also added several new physicians to its medical staff last year. They include Dr. Linda Camp, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who also heads the breast cancer care program; Dr. Alexis Hill, primary care at the Lisbon location; Dr. Gary Coleman, otolaryngologist; and Drs. Adel Youssef, Kevin Castillo, Thomas Geisler, Victor B. Lossev, Zev Maycon and Milan Dodig, gastroenterologists.

Also in 2021, Salem Regional earned national recognition for high-quality care. University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center at SRMC was awarded three-year accreditation by the Commission on Cancer for demonstrating continued excellence in treating patients with cancer and their families. And SRMC’s Wound Healing Center was also honored as a Healogics “Center of Distinction.”
