Southwoods’ New Orthopedic Center to Focus on Care, Patient Education

This fall, Southwoods Health plans to break ground on a new orthopedic center at its Boardman campus, says its CEO, Ed Muransky. “The whole drive in orthopedics is to open your eyes and take a look at what’s in the Valley,” he says. “I hope that Southwoods is a leader in this area.”

Muransky says the center will be dedicated specifically to orthopedic care and patient education. “We’re now up to 11 doctors in orthopedics on this campus and that’s growing,” he says. “We have four more orthopods coming on in the next 12 months. This is, over the next 10 years, one of our growth areas. As we’re reinvesting in the community, we’re reinvesting in more doctors.”

The idea is to consolidate Southwoods’ orthopedic care into one location instead of the seven sites it manages today. Making it easier for patients and physicians through better, more attentive and efficient care is key to a successful medical operation, Muransky says.
