We are excited to share that Eric Cortez, MD, FACEP, FAEMS has been announced as the new medical director for Emergency Medical Services at OhioHealth. Dr. Cortez has been with OhioHealth for more than five years. He has worked collaboratively with Columbus Fire, OhioHealth and other healthcare systems to advance prehospital care, EMS education and prehospital process improvement in central Ohio. He will be replacing Robert Lowe, MD, FACEP, FAEMS.
Dr. Lowe has accepted a position with the City of Columbus as its medical director. We are happy to say that he will continue to provide care in the emergency department at OhioHealth Doctors Hospital, and will continue to be a part of the residency and education program.
Join us in thanking Dr. Lowe for his years of service and congratulating Dr. Cortez on his new position. We know they will both do great things in the next steps of their journeys!
