Henry County Hospital and Pain Management Group, the leading developer of hospital-based, primary care pain management centers, announce today a partnership to bring balanced pain management care to Henry County and surrounding areas. Henry County Hospital Pain Management Center, scheduled to open March 21, 2013, is located at Henry County Hospital, 1600 East Riverview Avenue in Napoleon, Ohio.
The new relationship provides Henry County Hospital the ability to maximize available resources and provide comprehensive pain management services to the community.
“Inadequate pain relief is a serious public health problem in the United States. In Henry County, the number of individuals suffering from chronic and acute pain continues to increase, and the need to provide a high quality effective solution became apparent. In order to provide high quality care, a service that provides a balanced comprehensive approach to pain management was important.” said Kim Bordenkircher, CEO of Henry County Hospital. “The Pain Management Center will provide a balanced approach to pain focused on treating patients through a combination of diagnostics, minimally invasive outpatient procedures, physical modalities, and therapy, while decreasing the focus on prescription medication. If prescription drugs are included in an individualized pain treatment plan, the focus becomes managing those medications for optimal patient benefit.”
“Pain Management Group looks forward to our relationship with Henry County Hospital and the opportunity to bring our balanced approach of pain management to the Henry County community,” commented John Bookmyer, CEO of Pain Management Group. “We believe that a balanced approach to treatment is critical for patients to return to a life uninterrupted by acute and chronic pain. It is truly an honor to be working with outstanding healthcare providers such as Henry County Hospital.”
The new pain management center will offer treatment for a variety of conditions including neck and back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic pelvic pain, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), nerve damage, as well as pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms and shingles.
Dr. Panos Bakos, will be the lead physician at Henry County Hospital Pain Management Center. Dr. Bakos is board certified in anesthesiology and pain management.
