River Valley Physicians (RVP) has operated the RVP Orthopedic & Sports
Medicine Service line within the Emergency Department of East Liverpool
City Hospital (ELCH) for the past 18 months. RVP is excited to announce
the relocation of the RVP orthopedic program to the Sixth floor of the
hospital. ELCH Auxiliary provided financial assistance for the move.
Tracy Mangano, president of ELCH Auxiliary said, “Our team of volunteers
is very grateful to be able to help with this transition. Giving back
is very important to our organization and the end result will be improved
patient access to quality orthopedic care. That’s a win-win for
Since the new location remains within the hospital, patients continue to
have easy access—without leaving the building—to x-rays, MRIs,
labs and other necessary testing. The new orthopedic area provides greater
privacy and comfort for patients. Patients will enjoy a private waiting
area with reclining chairs, a flat screen TV, and a private restroom.
All exam rooms have large windows, allowing plenty of natural light. Exam
rooms are larger, allowing room for a family member to accompany a patient.
“Our new location on the sixth floor gives us a spacious, quiet
area to care for patients. Our orthopedic surgeons are able to spend more
time focusing on each patient without distraction. We are very pleased
with this new patient care setting,” said Beth Weir, Executive Director
of River Valley Physicians.
The Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Services of RVP provides patients
with the highest quality care for orthopedic injuries and disorders. All
of our physicians are board certified in orthopedic surgery. RVP provides
two orthopedic surgeons with complementary skills to cover the broadest
array of orthopedic needs, including total joint replacements.
At RVP Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Services, we provide advanced treatments
for sports injuries and solutions for orthopedic problems. Our program
is designed to get our patients back to their favorite activities sooner.
