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

An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from pain that impacts their activities of daily living. That’s over 20 percent of the adult population.

“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.”

All are invited to join in the open house festivities, which will include guided tours, a chance to meet physicians and staff, giveaways, refreshments and more.

The center provides treatment 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 Valley.
