Pataskala Health Campus adds two new services

By ThisWeek Community News  • 

The Pataskala Health Campus is nearing capacity as new services are added.

"I think we always evaluate the needs of the community," said Rob Montagnese, Licking Memorial Health Systems president and CEO.

Licking Memorial Health Systems on Nov. 15 announced that the Pataskala Health Campus at 1 Healthy Place has added two new services, nephrology and podiatry, and Licking Memorial Women's Health expanded hours with the relocation of a physician to the practice.

The podiatry practice, Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central Ohio, focuses on the treatment and reconstruction of all foot and ankle problems. Nephrology services through Mid-Ohio Nephrology and Hypertension concern the study and treatment of kidney-related problems and disease.

Women's Health hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the relocation of Tiffany E.D. Inglis to Pataskala. Inglis is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology.

Montagnese said the Pataskala Health Campus was created in 2004 with extra space to add services as they become available. In 2004, it had two family physicians and diagnostic services. Obstetrics-gynecology and pediatrics followed in 2005.

In addition to the new services, the campus provides family-practice medicine, pediatrics, women's health, urgent care, radiology, ultrasound, laboratory services and physical therapy.

Montagnese said there currently are no plans to add space to the facility, but the health system owns land surrounding the Pataskala Health Campus and more construction could take place as needed.

"We have the capability to add additional services," Montagnese said.
