About Us

HISTORY

The identity of OneEighty was announced in 2016. The new name is used to communicate a dynamic, integrated health system which had previously been known as Liberty Center Connections (LCC). LCC did business under two names - STEPS at Liberty Center and Every Woman’s House.

OneEighty’s History is the combination of two stories, which over time have merged, to find a home under one umbrella. In 1974, STEPS at Liberty Center (formerly Wayne County Alcoholism Services) began as a one-person operation. The agency has grown to offer a full continuum of substance abuse prevention, intervention and treatment services. In 2005, the agency was selected as one of thirteen providers to participate in a national program tasked with improving the treatment and outcomes of individuals facing substance abuse challenges, called Network for the Improvement of Addiction Treatment (NIATx). Since its inception, NIATx has grown to include over 1,000 treatment providers. OneEighty remains actively involved in this effort.

Every Woman’s House began in 1978, when a group of women in Wayne County, Ohio began meeting informally to discuss the need to serve women who were victims of family violence—especially those trying to flee from an abusive partner. The women began using volunteer efforts to provide shelter and support to battered women and rape victims. In 1982, the donation of an eleven-room house allowed the agency to offer a short-term domestic violence shelter, while also expanding their services to include victim advocacy, counseling, support groups, and a 24-hour hotline. The same level of quality service which had been established for decades by Every Woman’s House and STEPS at Liberty Center is still the standard at OneEighty.

Candy Mori
Trustee

Name:   Candy Mori              

Position:    Trustee              

Bio:           Candy has been married to her wonderful and supportive husband, Jeff, for 20 years. They have 3 charismatic children, Isaac 13, Conner 13 and Nya 7. They live in Dalton.     Their family loves any type of competitive physical activity especially neighborhood games of flag football, kickball, and whiffle ball.                  

Current Employer and Position:           Candy has worked for Wooster Community Hospital for 17 years. She began her career as a staff nurse, then obtained a Masters in Nursing Science degree and was promoted to Clinical Nurse Specialist. In 2019, she graduated with a PhD in nursing and was promoted to Director of Advanced Practice Nurses and Education Department. Most recently, she implemented a new approach to patient surgical care called Enhanced Recovery After Surgery. Through this evidenced based practice, the hospital has dramatically decreased the incidence of inpatient opioid use. In our colorectal surgical patients alone, the opioid use decreased by 55% per patient.

Previous Experience:    Wooster Community Hospital Clinical Nurse Specialist, IV Therapist, Staff RN, Unit Charge Nurse and Nursing Supervisor.

Education/College:  Kent State University, The University of Akron    

Current Other Boards Positions: WCH Diabetics Services Advisory Board

Previous Boards:         PTO, Ohio Health Literacy Partners, Living Water Community Church and Wayne County and City of Wooster for Health Screenings and Clinics.

Why OneEighty?       

I have led a team at the hospital to successfully decrease our opioid use and would like to continue those efforts into our community. I understand that inpatient opioid use leads to prescription misuse and I would like to bridge the work we have done in the hospital with the work of OneEighty to positively influence community opioid use and diversion. I have such a strong passion for people and nursing, and I want to use that passion to continue to guide and serve those in need at OneEighty.
