River Valley Physicians (RVP) has operated the RVP Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Service line within the Emergency Department of East Liverpool Health System (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 everyone.”

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. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call us at (330) 386-2047.
