Medical Staff

The physician who admits you to Western Reserve Hospital is responsible for directing your care throughout your stay. Your physician, as the coordinator of your treatment program, should be consulted if you have any questions about your illness or treatment. Western Reserve Hospital is a teaching facility, offering accredited residency education in a variety of specialty areas. Residents are under the guidance and supervision of the attending physicians.

Nursing Staff

A team of professional registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and nurse technicians provide 24-hour nursing care at Western Reserve Hospital. A Nurse Manager is responsible for directing and coordinating the delivery of nursing care on each unit. During the day, please feel free to contact your nurse, or the Nurse Manager, if you have any questions or concerns about your care.

Palliative Care and Hospice Services

Palliative Care and Hospice services focus on providing care that enhances the comfort and quality of life for patients and their families.

Hospice offers uncompromising quality care to terminally ill patients and the people who love and care for them. While providing support to the patient and their family, our services allow everyone to live each day to the fullest.

Palliative Care Service provides strategies to manage symptoms associated with serious illness and assists with establishing goals of care. The service also addresses the emotional, social and spiritual issues patients and their families may experience.

Both of these services are available via consult while you are admitted to the hospital. If you have additional questions you may contact the Case Management Department at (330) 971-7891 or dial Ext. 7891 from inside the hospital.
