OhioHealth O'Bleness Memorial Hospital

OhioHealth O'Bleness Hospital is a 144 bed community hospital at 55 Hospital Drive, Athens, Ohio 45701. O'Bleness overlooks the Hocking River. The westernmost wing of the hospital is known as the Cornwell Center, which houses medical offices; a separate office building slightly northwest of this was recently built, and is known as the Castrop Center. The Tri-County Mental Health Services complex is also next door to the west. In January 2014 OhioHealth (Columbus, OH) took over control of O'Bleness Hospital. As such, O'Bleness Memorial Hospital has changed their name to OhioHealth O'Bleness Hospital to reflect the acquisition. The current President and CEO of OhioHealth O'Bleness Hospital is Greg Long.

History[edit]

Sheltering Arms

The predecessor to O'Bleness was the nearby Sheltering Arms Hospital, which has been placed on the National Register. Sheltering Arms began as a birthing center in a private house at 19 Clark Street. A neighboring house was then purchased, and the two were connected and additional areas were added.
