Columbus Regional Health

We are proud to enhance the quality of patient care by raising charitable contributions to underwrite innovative hospital programs and provide a safe and comfortable healing environment for patients. All Columbus Regional Health departments and service units may apply for a Foundation grant to implement innovative programs and processes that improve the quality and availability of services to patients.

The L. Paul Berman Memorial Fund for Patient Care Excellence:

The Berman fund was established in 2005 by a generous challenge grant by Fred and Karen Reams to recognize the contributions and vision of former Hospital Trustee, L. Paul Berman, who passed away in 2005. An intelligent and community-minded individual, Paul spearheaded the Hospital's growth into a regional facility and championed the Hospital's renovation in the 1990s. The Berman Memorial fund endowment will support programs that will accelerate adoption of state-of-the-art, cost-effective patient care.

Doug Leonard Innovation Fellowship:

Established in 2009, the purpose of this fellowship is to honor former CRH CEO Doug Leonard's passion for innovation in the care of CRH patients, to recognize his innovation legacy as the inspiration for the Innovation Center at CRH, and to encourage and recognize accomplished innovators at CRH.
