MetroHealth opens primary care office in Medina

(Cleveland, Ohio) – Medina County residents now have a primary care option closer to their homes. MetroHealth Medina Health Center, Reagan Parkway, located at 111 West Reagan Parkway, opens to patients on December 10.

MetroHealth provider Anthony Petruzzi will see patients ages 16 and older at the health center, which offers walk-in and scheduled appointments. Walk-in appointments are available every weekday morning.

“We’re focused on keeping people healthy, and having a close relationship with your primary care provider is crucial to staying well,” said Michael Stern, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MetroHealth. “We know our patients prefer to get care closer to where they live, and so this new health center makes it easier for those living in or near Medina County to access the care they need.”

Approximately 1,500 MetroHealth and Cuyahoga County employees, along with MetroHealth Skyway members, live in Medina County. MetroHealth Skyway is an affordable health plan for employers, offered by MetroHealth.

MetroHealth will not use any portion of the Cuyahoga County Health and Human Services (HHS) levy to support the operation of this facility. HHS levy dollars are only used to pay for the cost of care provided to Cuyahoga County residents. In September, House Bill 111 was passed, allowing MetroHealth to expand its primary care services to Medina County.

This is MetroHealth’s second health center in Medina County. In 2015, the Brunswick Health Center opened, offering primary care, pediatric services, infusion treatments and a MetroExpressCare.

To schedule an appointment at the new MetroHealth Medina Health Center, Reagan Parkway, call 330-725-6226. For more information, visit https://www.metrohealth.org/medina-reagan.
