Bluffton Hospital, a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, recently welcomed Jennifer Hohman, MD as its first pediatric hospitalist. Previously, patients newborn to 18 years old who required overnight care were typically transferred to Blanchard Valley Hospital or another nearby hospital with pediatricians on staff. Now that Dr. Hohman has joined Bluffton Hospital, children can be admitted without leaving town.
The addition of Dr. Hohman allows children who visit the hospital with more serious illnesses or injuries to remain close to home while receiving overnight care.
“Children have always had exceptional care available at Bluffton Hospital’s emergency department,” said Nicole Keuneke, director of operations at the hospital. “Now, youth have the opportunity to receive specialized care at the facility.
We are focused on providing complete family care to our patients,” she continued. “Recently Bluffton Primary Care was established on our campus and now the services provided by Dr. Hohman make Bluffton Hospital an easy choice for health care.”
Apart from being a pediatric hospitalist, Dr. Hohman will serve as the lead physician at Bluffton’s Beyond MedSpa, also part of Blanchard Valley Health System. The addition of Dr. Hohman will allow patients of all ages to receive medical procedures such as laser treatments and injectables without having to travel.
Dr. Hohman looks forward to serving Bluffton and the surrounding communities. To contact her, call Bluffton Hospital at 419.358.9010 or Bluffton’s Beyond MedSpa at 419.369.2288.
