The Mercy Health – Eastgate Medical Center will offer easy access to outpatient surgery and a wide range of specialists from its location on Aicholtz Road, just off State Route 32 and I-275.  The practice was formerly known as the Surgery Center of Cincinnati.

The center features four operating rooms and will offer more than 30 specialists to provide surgery or treatment for a wide range of health conditions, including orthopaedics, pain management, podiatry, gastrointestinal, and urology.
