BELLAIRE, OH – Services at Bellaire Health Center continue to expand to meet the needs of Belmont County residents.
Located on Guernsey Street behind Imperial Plaza, the BHC, a division of Wheeling Hospital, offers a wide range of care, including family medicine, internal medicine, cardiology, plastic surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, podiatry and gastroenterology. Outpatient EKGs, blood work and X-rays are performed at the center.
For the convenience of area residents, the center’s pharmacy now features a drive-thru and extended hours. The hours are 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, however, only the drive-thru is open after 4 p.m. The pharmacy is closed from 12:30-1 p.m. Prescriptions are accepted regardless of the health center, hospital, physician or nurse practitioner used by the patient.
Hospital CEO Douglass Harrison said, “The new pharmacy drive-thru is just one of the upgrades at the Bellaire Health Center. A new urgent care center at that location is under construction and will open later this fall.”
The following physicians see patients at the center:
• Family medicine: Dr. Joe Bannon, Dr. Satinder Bhullar, Dr. Charles Bradac and Nurse Practitioner Mary McCracken.
• Internal Medicine: Dr. Maheshwar Musunuri
• Cardiology: Dr. Devender Batra
