Columbus Regional officials today announce the introduction of Columbus Regional Health.
The decision to introduce the health system name was made to better reflect the broad services offered by Columbus Regional. The name affirms Columbus Regional Health’s continued work to offer the very best healthcare services both inside and outside the walls of the hospital, and is aligned with the CRH mission of “Improving the health and well being of the people we serve.”
The name introduction will not impact the existing corporate structure of the organization and Columbus Regional Health will remain an independent, non-profit health system. When referring to the hospital facility, the Columbus Regional Hospital name will continue to be used.

As one of the Top 100 Hospitals in the country, we are proud to provide exceptional service to our patients across the continuum of care through innovative care delivery models.”

“With our growing number of physicians, healthcare professionals, and outpatient centers, we have become much more than a single hospital.
