Wadsworth to get in-patient addiction treatment center inside Wadsworth Rittman Hospital facility

After almost a year and a half of work, SUMMA & CATS have entered into a lease agreement for the opening of a 16 bed in-patient addiction treatment center to be located in the old physical therapy area of the Wadsworth Rittman Hospital facility. A formal announcement is planned for 10 a.m. on Friday at the facility’s Founders Hall.

It will take several months to complete renovations of the space and afterward there will be a formal ribbon cutting/open house.

Roughly 10-20 jobs will be created, mostly treatment assistants, an MD, Addictionolgist (shared with other CATS facilities).

“This is a good thing for those in need in our community, the greater Wadsworth area and Medina County and a good use of a portion of the WRH facility,” said Matt Hiscock, public safety director for Wadsworth in an email.
