Blanchard Valley Health System, or (BVHS), is a non-profit, integrated regional health system based in Findlay, a unique micropolitan community in the northwestern part of the U.S. state of Ohio. Governed by a community board of trustees representing large and small business, education, law, medicine, and finance, BVHS oversees all operations.
BVHS serves an eight-county area that includes Allen, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Putnam, Seneca, Wood and Wyandot counties in Ohio.
In addition, a dedicated group of more than 600 volunteers support BVHS through their contributions.
BVHS has a long history of service to Findlay and the surrounding area.
Blanchard Valley Hospital, the anchor subsidiary of BVHS, was founded in 1891 as the Findlay Home for Friendless Women and Children. Bluffton Hospital was founded in 1908 by Dr. J. J. Suter. Both hospitals are part of BVHS.
The two hospitals merged in 1995 to create the Blanchard Valley Regional Health Center and later, the Blanchard Valley Health Association (BVHA). In 2007, BVHA changed its name to Blanchard Valley Health System.
Both Blanchard Valley Hospital and Bluffton Hospital are members of the Ohio Hospital Association.
In addition to Blanchard Valley Hospital and Bluffton Hospital, BVHS also operates the Jack Schaefer Retirement Community (which includes Birchaven Village, Birchaven Estates and Birchaven Heights), Bridge Home Health & Hospice, Northwest Ohio Medical Equipment, Blanchard Valley Regional Cancer Center, Physicians Plus Urgent Care, Blanchard Valley Sleep Disorders Center, Wound Care Solutions, Caughman Health Center, EasternWoods Outpatient Center and several other health-related businesses in northwest Ohio.
