BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Wood County Hospital hosted a community open house of the new 23,000 square foot Falcon Health Center Wednesday.
The new $5 million dollar building will serve students, faculty and staff at Bowling Green State University. It will 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. Tours of the new building were offered at the open house, and refreshments were served.
"Wood County Hospital is thrilled to be partnering with Bowling Green State University 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 new Falcon Health Center 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 Bowling Green State University 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 Bowling Green State University Student Health Services will be available at Falcon Health Center. All members of the Bowling Green State University community are eligible for the services provided at the Falcon Health Center.
