To date, ProMedica has refused to get entangled with the political controversy of abortion by declining to provide Toledo’s last abortion clinic (Capital Care Network) a transfer agreement — a state licensing requirement for every ambulatory surgical center in Ohio.

Randy Oostra, President and CEO of ProMedica, recently wrote:

Toledo ProMedica Hospital does not have transfer agreements with abortion clinics. However, with or without a transfer agreement, we will perform any necessary treatment of women, or any patient, in need of emergent care. We are steadfastly committed to providing care to all who present at our hospitals.

This issue is between the abortion clinics and Ohio lawmakers. We do not want to be put in a position of choosing a political stance that is both divisive and polarizing. Our only commitment is to live our Mission by ensuring we provide solid health care.

Send a message encouraging Mr. Oostra to continue to stay out of the abortion controversy between the State of Ohio and Capital Care Network.


Dear Mr. Oostra
