The Aultman Health Foundation provides health care and health insurance in Ohio's Stark County. The health organization operates Aultman Hospital, which has more than 800 beds and was founded in 1892. As Stark County's largest hospital, it offers specialty services in such areas as cancer therapy, neurosurgery, orthopedics, and cardiovascular care. The health care system also includes urgent care community health centers, physical therapy facilities, and Aultman Woodlawn, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility with 90 beds that also provides home health and hospice services. Established in 1985, the foundation's AultCare affiliate provides managed care health plans to more than 500,000 participants.
With its medical staff of 575 doctors, Aultman's plans for growth include expanding its services and technology as well as adding capacity through renovations and by constructing new facilities. In 2010 it completed a $20 million renovation of its Medical Intensive Care Unit and added Da Vincirobotic surgical system technology, a minimally invasive option for general, gynecologic, orthopedic, and urologic procedures. Also that year Aultman, together with Pomerene Hospital in Millersburg, opened a home medical store in Millersburg that provides such medical supplies as oxygen, CPAP equipment, wheelchairs, and hospital beds. Aultman opened a 12-bed inpatient hospice center on the Aultman Woodlawn campus in 2011. – less
