Officials of Robinson Health System, Inc. in Ravenna and University Hospitals in Cleveland have signed a letter of intent to enter an agreement that will add Robinson Memorial Hospital as a full member of the University Hospitals system.

Stephen Colecchi, president and CEO of Robinson, said the intent is to have the final agreement in place by May 31 with an effective date subject to regulatory approval.

Robinson Health System, Inc. has been seeking partnership opportunities since June 2013, when it was agreed that an affiliation agreement with the Summa Health System would be allowed to expire at the end of 2013.

I agree with grandma209 the emergency room is a joke, there is a total  disconnect with the way they handle their patients I can drive 10 or so miles up rt 14 to Twinsburg to the CCF emergency room and be taken care of in minutes instead of hours it is really sad they have never figured out what the word EMERGENCY stands for and I speak from personal experience and if you need admitted GOD help you because then you have more hours to wait for a bed. That whole hospital needs new people hired from the top down, the nurses are wonderful except for a few. They also need Doctors that are more competent and on call for specialized care in the ER when needed. Good Luck University taking on a hospital that is not interested in patient care.

Unless Robinson is going to update their systems, example speed up their emergency times, and get competent doctors on staff, the University system is not going to help.  New, competent administration needs to be hired.
