UH Avon Health Center has it all The UH Avon Health Center debuted in 1999 when
one of northeast Ohio’s first medically-based fitness centers – the EMH Center for Health & Fitness – opened its doors. The facility continued to expand along with the needs of the community, and in 2005 the first patients were treated in the EMH Avon Emergency Care Center – an 18-bed, freestanding emergency department, which was again one of the first of its kind in our area. Today, the 91,000 square-foot UH Avon Health Center consists of a state-of-the-art fitness center, along with physician offices, physical and speech therapy, radiology and lab services, as well as a full-service 24/7 ER. The UH Fitness Center offers more than 125 group exercise classes, senior programs, a day spa, and more. It was
named “Best of the West” in both fitness and spa categories by readers of West Shore magazine and the “Best of Lorain County” by readers of puLse magazine. The UH Avon Health Center also features comprehensive diagnostic services such as CT scans, Ultrasound, MRI, diagnostic radiology, screening mammograms, bone density screening and walk-in laboratory services. Under the same roof, you’ll also find physician offices, for medical specialties such as plastic & reconstructive surgery, hand surgery and obstetrics and gynecology.

What will you dream about while you have your teeth fixed? Sedation dentistry uses
medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's sometimes referred to as "sleep dentistry." With the advent of sedation dentistry, regardless of how anxious you are about being in the dental chair, you can have dental treatment completed while you relax and enjoy your sweet dreams. Although the intention is to make you comfortable rather than unconscious, almost all I.V. moderate sedation patients drift off to sleep during their procedure. The levels of sedation used include: • Minimal sedation -- you are awake but relaxed. • Moderate sedation (formerly called "conscious sedation") -- you may slur your words when speaking and not

remember much of the procedure. • Deep sedation -- you are on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened. • General anesthesia -- you are completely unconscious. Doctor Scott Nagy has been serving his patients with I.V. moderate sedation and nitrous oxide for over twenty years during dental procedures like fillings, deep cleanings, extractions and surgical implant placement. Dr. Nagy has invested in his skill development through rigorous and well respected, extensive training programs at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton and The Midwest Implant Institute in Columbus.
