Traffic Alert: OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital

Beginning today, Olentangy River Road northbound from N Broadway to just past Thomas Lane will be restricted to one lane northbound while crews perform roadside work north of Thomas Lane.  This pattern is anticipated to last approximately two weeks.  Also today, crews will be working on the right lane from Olentangy River Road southbound, just north of Thomas Lane.  This daily restriction will only be in place between 9:00am – 3:00pm.

Next Tuesday evening is the tentative date for the SR 315 southbound traffic switch back onto the original SR 315 alignment, over the new bridge.  I will send more details on traffic restrictions later in the week.

Four OhioHealth hospitals receive American Heart Association award for saving lives

OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, OhioHealth Doctors Hospital, OhioHealth Marion General Hospital and OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital recently received the Mission: Lifeline Gold Receiving Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association. This award recognizes excellent and timely care for ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) heart attacks, the most time-sensitive and deadly type of heart attack.

Each year, more than 250,000 people experience a STEMI and it is critical to restore blood flow as quickly as possible, either by mechanically opening the blocked vessel or by providing clot-busting medication. The goal of the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline is to save more lives by closing the gaps that separate STEMI patients from timely access to appropriate care.

To receive the award, a hospital or emergency medical services must have an 85 percent composite adherence and at least 24 consecutive months of 75 percent or higher compliance on all Mission: Lifeline STEMI Receiving Center quality measures to improve the quality of care for STEMI patients. OhioHealth hospitals earned this award by meeting specific criteria and standards of performance for the quick and appropriate treatment of STEMI patients by providing emergency procedures to re-establish blood flow to blocked arteries when needed.

OhioHealth is committed to saving more lives through prompt, evidence-based care for these heart attack patients.
