HVCH opens new urology clinic

Hocking Valley Community Hospital has teamed up with Central Ohio Urology Group to open a new urology clinic located within the hospital for the convenience of patients.

Urology is the branch of medicine that treats the male reproductive system and the urinary tract in both males and females.

“We understand that urology conditions are deeply personal, and we recognize that,” said Tara Jacobs, BSN, RN, Director of Surgical Services and Outpatient Clinics. “That is why providing peace of mind and confidence to our patients is extremely important to us. We also take pride in offering much needed services to our patients close to home.”

Services provided in the clinic include but are not limited to management of overactive bladder and loss of bladder control, erectile dysfunction, kidney stones, bladder and prostate cancers, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), management of indwelling catheters, and urinary tract infections. Procedures offered in the clinic include vasectomy, cystoscopy and prostate biopsy. When further treatment is necessary, procedures can be completed in the surgical department located within the hospital that prides itself with consistently low infection rates and high patient satisfaction scores.

Urologists Drs. William Bloch, Jeffrey Harbrecht, Michael Cunningham and Evan Cohn are currently accepting new patients. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, please call 740-380-8129 or have your primary care physician fax a referral to 740-380-8083.

“We welcome Central Ohio Urology Group to HVCH. This is a tremendous asset for our patients and community to receive care close to home,” Jacobs said.
