Wood County Hospital (WCH) hosted a community Open House Aug. 21 for the new Falcon Health Center, a $5 million University health center that will be owned and operated by the hospital and replace the present Bowling Green State University Student Health Services building on campus.
The new facility is located across from the BGSU campus at the corner of East Wooster Street and South College Drive.
“Wood County Hospital is thrilled to be partnering with BGSU for this new health center,” said Stanley Korducki, president of Wood County Hospital. “We are committed to providing excellent patient care and services to help better serve the BGSU students, faculty and staff.”
“The Falcon Health Center is a wonderful addition to campus,” said BGSU President Dr. Mary Ellen Mazey. “The entire University community will benefit from the partnership with Wood County Hospital and the enhanced health care amenities being offered.”
The new 23,000 square foot building is two stories high and complements the campus buildings across Wooster Street. It houses 20 private exam rooms, procedure rooms, an IV therapy area, wellness and patient education rooms, and clinical support areas.
“Our goal at Falcon Health Center is to assist BGSU students to develop into responsible health care consumers with the ability to maintain wellness first and foremost, while addressing preventive matters and acute illness,” said Nicholas Espinoza, D.O., FHC Medical Director. “We will be a true campus and community resource.”
Preventive and illness-related health services will be provided by a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and other healthcare professionals. Services include general radiology, lab and blood draw, immunizations, nutrition counseling, travel health, sexual health, men’s and women’s health, as well as mental health services. A drive-thru pharmacy is also available.
All medical services formerly provided at the BGSU Student Health Services will be available at Falcon Health Center.
All members of the BGSU community are eligible for the services provided at the Falcon Health Center. To learn more, visit falconhealth.org.
