COSHOCTON -- Coshocton Hospital is announcing a new location and new name for Coshocton Urgent Care. Beginning Jan. 1, Coshocton Hospital Medical Clinic (formerly known as Urgent Care) and Coshocton Hospital Occupational Medicine Clinic will be located on the ground floor of Coshocton Hospital.

Though the physicians will be the same, they are extending the hours. This move will deliver many positive effects for patients of the clinic. The new location in the Coshocton Hospital will allow patients' access to ancillary services such as lab and radiology. In addition, patients will have improved efficiencies and access to test results and close proximity to the Emergency Department when transfers are necessary.

"This is just another example of how Coshocton Hospital is striving to provide the best and most efficient healthcare for the community," said Robert Miller, acting CEO/CFO of Coshocton Hospital.

Coshocton Hospital is a non-profit organization located at 1460 Orange Street in Coshocton Ohio. Currently the largest employer in Coshocton County, Coshocton hospital celebrated 100 years of service to the community in 2009.
