Pomerene Hospital is located in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country. Amish patients make up nearly 50% of our customers, and we see more Amish patients than any other hospital in the world. With our unique customer focus, we provide a three-bedroom furnished “Amish House” on our premises. Amish families who come from afar to seek medical treatment may stay at the “Amish House” to be near their loved ones, and Amish patients with an early morning surgical procedure where transportation may be difficult can also use the “Amish House.” As an organization, we take pride in our culture and provide every employee with cultural training so that great care is given to every patient, every time.

About Our Amish Community
The Tri-County area, consisting of Holmes, Wayne, and Tuscarawas County, is home to the largest Anabaptist (Amish and Mennonite) population in the world where approximately 40,000 Amish residents have made their home. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce states that 49% of the Holmes County population consists of Amish. The Amish population believes strongly in helping each other and their community as they are generally reserved, modest, and humble. Amish also have a strong belief that tradition is valued over change and preservation eclipses progress. The common language of the Amish population is Pennsylvania Dutch.
