Newton Falls – Spring is a great time for freshening up old spaces or starting anew altogether, and for one local business the arrival of the season brought the opportunity for both. ONE Health Ohio celebrated the opening of its Falls Family Care facility last week, welcoming residents and visitors of the 44444 with an open house Wednesday afternoon. Following the ribbon cutting festivities led by community and regional officials, attendees were treated to a tour guided by one of the friendly staff members and were able to see the amazing transformation of the building that once housed the video store (across from Huntington Bank) and will now provide a place for patients to receive state of the art medical and dental services.
The beautifully redesigned center is a 7,000 square foot facility with six exam rooms, five dental treatment rooms and onsite X-ray and lab services utilizing the latest advances in diagnostic technology. In addition to general family healthcare, specialties such has behavioral health counseling will soon be offered.
Once the brief but informative tour was completed, potential future patrons were introduced to the various personnel who will be a vital part of the daily operations and encouraged to ask any questions they might have. Organizers then invited the over 300 attendees to enjoy a light lunch, enter a raffle drawing, and take home a goodie bag with helpful items such as a magnet with the center’s contact information and thoughtful items such as a packet of flower seeds meant to attract and feed butterflies, all tucked into a reusable “ragbag” printed with the multitude of ways one could put it to further use.
Marketing Director Megan Kovacich mentioned that one of the most common misconceptions about ONE Health Ohio, which has been in business for 30 years this year, is that “people think we’re a clinic just for low income families.” But that isn’t the case. Kovacich explains that Falls Family Care accepts all patients, adults and children alike, regardless of income or insurance status. Everyone who is treated pays for services and there is an ACA counselor available to discuss financial options with those patients who are uninsured or underinsured. ONE Health Ohio prides itself on providing “quality, innovative and affordable healthcare services” in the patient’s hometown.
In addition to the new site in Newton Falls, ONE Health Ohio has facilities in Alliance and Youngstown, with three separate locations in Warren as well. Falls Family Care is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5pm (Thursday hours are 9:30am to 6pm) and appointments can be made by calling (330) 872-2010. Though the center is not an urgent care or emergency room -type facility, same day appointments may be available.
