The new relationship provides Memorial Hospital the ability to maximize available resources and provide comprehensive pain management services to the community.
“One of the goals of the pain management team is to educate patients and the community about ‘pill mills’ and the negative impact they have on communities,”
“PMG looks forward to our relationship with Memorial Hospital and the opportunity to bring our balanced approach of pain management to the Marysville community,” commented John Bookmyer, CEO of PMG. “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 Memorial Hospital of Union County.”
The Memorial Hospital Pain Management Clinic 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.
