  9. Should I Stay?

    Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, Metrohealth. Robinson Memorial, St. Joseph and Valley Health in Warren. So many LTC facilities I can't remember them all.

  11. Help! Relocating to Columbus, Ohio!

    All the major medical centers in Columbus are north of I-70. With your experience, I would also check out the Ross Heart Hospital, which is part of the Ohio State Medical Center.
