Southwoods Welcomes Public to New Pain & Spine Center

BOARDMAN, Ohio — Southwoods Health is hosting an open house May 19 from noon to 4 p.m. to celebrate the opening of its Pain & Spine Center, in the Southwoods Medical Building at 250 DeBartolo Place on the Southwoods campus.

Some 50 million Americans suffer from pain that impacts their daily activities, according to Southwoods. That accounts for more than 20% of the adult population.

“We created this facility to meet the needs of those affected by pain right here at home,” said Ed Muransky, CEO 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.”

The event is open to the public and will include guided tours, a chance to meet physicians and staff, giveaways, refreshments and more.

“We want to welcome the community into this beautiful 40,000-square-foot facility so they can see for themselves the highest quality of service and care Southwoods believes in,” Muransky said.

The center treats a number 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. Appointments are available with the center’s spine, pain management, orthopedic and rheumatology physicians.

“This expert team is committed to working together to make a difference in the lives of people who are suffering from chronic pain,” Muransky said. “The center is designed to help patients receive the complete care they need, from diagnosis to treatment, in one convenient location.”

The addition of the center increases employment at Southwoods to nearly 1,000 area residents. “We are a locally owned health-care system,” Muransky said. “We know firsthand some of the most hardworking people live right here – and we are excited to provide a place for them to work.”
