Upcoming Closures of The Help Center and Massage Therapy

Henry County Hospital Announces Upcoming Closures of The Help Center and Massage Therapy Department

Napoleon, Ohio Henry County Hospital will be discontinuing two service lines later this year. Massage therapy services operated by the hospital will close on November 1. The Help Center, which provides mental health services, will close on December 1.

“The healthcare industry continues to suffer from the financial impact of rising labor and supply costs

while grappling with ongoing reimbursement challenges. Unfortunately, these circumstances have led

to difficult decisions throughout the industry regarding the continuation of services,” said Kristi Barnd, CEO of Henry County Hospital.

While the hospital will no longer own and operate the massage therapy department as of November 1, it hopes to continue offering services by leasing the space to an independent massage therapist. More information will be shared once details have been finalized.

The Help Center is working to transition current patients to other mental health care providers in the community. “The providers at The Help Center have delivered an excellent service to the patients of this community for many years. This unfortunate decision is the result of the challenging reimbursement landscape we are in,” said Barnd.

Patients who have questions or need assistance transitioning to new service providers are encouraged to call the hospital at 419-592-4015.
