Center for pain management to open in Oregon
The Comprehensive Centers for Pain Management will hold an open house Wed., April 24, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at its newest facility located at 846 S. Coy Road in Oregon.

The $2.2 million facility houses 11,000 square-feet and two surgery suites (West Central Surgical Center-Bayside). The center will offer “the most advanced interventional, diagnostic, and outpatient surgical pain management procedures available in the region,” stated Dr. William James, Jr., founder and medical director.

In addition to surgical services, the center will offer innovative non-surgical approaches to reducing pain including FLO, an enhanced therapy and wellness program, as well as steroid injections, nerve blocks, acupuncture, behavioral pain management, nutritional support, sleep hygiene and exercise programs including Yoga and Pilates. The goal is to provide the most minimally-invasive treatment of chronic pain, stated Jeri Shick, marketing coordinator.

The center had outgrown its previous location at ProMedica Bay Park Community Hospital, Shick added. Ten new jobs will be created bringing total employment to 25. The facility was designed, managed and developed by DECA Health, Inc.

Comprehensive Centers for Pain Management also has locations in Sylvania and Lambertville. It will celebrate its 10th anniversary this fall.

Guests at the open house will be able to take a guided tour, meet the medical providers and the Wellness Team. To attend, RSVP to Lisa at 419-843-1369, ext 121.
