Cleveland Clinic Medina Hospital now offers care for patients who want to take a holistic approach to their health.

The Logsdon Family Wellness Center for Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine is supported from the 2019 donation by David Logsdon and his late wife, Jan. It is located inside the hospital at 1000 E. Washington St., Medina.

Integrative and lifestyle medicine treats patients with a holistic approach – medically or through alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage, yoga, diet, exercise, music therapy, aromatherapy and meditation. These treatments do not replace traditional treatment regimens or primary care providers or medical specialists, but are used to complement these approaches to help patients improve their overall health.

Patients at the Logsdon Center will first see Maria Hochendoner, a certified nurse practitioner specializing in lifestyle medicine, either in person or virtually. She will conduct a thorough assessment of their needs and work with them to develop a plan for which therapies might benefit them the most. Some of the therapies are available at Medina Hospital, and more will be added throughout the year. Others are available at the Cleveland Clinic’s Strongsville Family Health and Surgery Center.

Patients can call 216-448-4325 to schedule an appointment.
