Clinton Co. hospital opens Warren branch

MAINEVILLE - Clinton Memorial Hospital's first venture outside its home county opens later this month in this Warren County community.

An open house Wednesday at the River's Bend Health Center, at 87 E. U.S. 22 and Ohio 3, is part of 53rd-anniversary events for the Wilmington-based hospital. Its Regional Health System already operates several small physician centers in rural areas of Clinton County.

"We saw the growth taking place in Maineville, and because it is just on the outskirts of our primary service area, the location of the center is a logical extension," said Dana Dunn, Clinton Memorial's community and public relations coordinator. "We are also trying to encourage people to consider CMH as an alternative to driving to Cincinnati or Dayton for hospital care."

The first occupants at River's Bend Health Center are urologist Dr. Christopher Lawley and family-practice physicians Dr. Ted Schoettinger and Dr. Glenn Rogers. The building has additional physician suites and finished space for a future urgent-care facility, as well as space designed for a laboratory.

Representatives of Clinton Memorial's inpatient rehabilitation unit, rehabilitation services and other departments will be at the open house to provide information and screenings.

There will be an open house Sept. 29, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the River's Bend Health Center, at 87 E. U.S. 22 and Ohio 3 in Maineville, near the intersection of U.S. 48.
