OUR STORY

The Oldest Organization for Professionals in the Mahoning Valley.

Founded on November 13, 1872 as the Mahoning County Medical Society, the society began with ten physicians as members. In 1872, Youngstown was known as the most important settlement in the southern part of the Western Reserve as well as one of the important cities in the entire state. There were only 13 doctors practicing in the city at the time.

Dr. Timothy Woodbridge, MD, (1810-1893) was the first native-born physician in Youngstown. Elected as the Society’s first

president, he was later re-elected six times and held office for a total of seven years, the longest term of any president.

The Mahoning Valley Medical Society is governed by a Council comprised of four officers, four delegates to the Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA), four alternate delegates to the OSMA, six council members including three representing hospital systems, and one Bulletin editor. The Council meets every third Tuesday of the month (except during the months of July and August).
