Why Columbus Regional?
We believe that everyone in our community deserves the finest healthcare. And in order to make true on this belief, we're committed to being the best at everything we do. We believe that if we can be better, we must be better. And that's what makes Columbus Regional Hospital consistently get recognized as a top quality Indiana Hospital.
Our staff works as a team of physicians, nurses, volunteers, therapists, pharmacists, clinicians, managers, administrators, and support staff—as well as our Board of Trustees—redefining what it means to provide the best in healthcare. As a top Indiana hospital, we're proud to have a culture of excellence. We're inspired to stay abreast of the newest medical technologies and procedures, and to strive for constant improvements. This pursuit of excellence has also led us to national recognition and benchmark performance in many areas.
Columbus Regional Health's clinical excellence rivals that of the largest hospitals in Indiana, in part due to our state-of-the-art technological developments. Despite the disruption to services caused by the flood in 2008, we have continued to implement the newest technologies available to us. In fact, when critical supplies were damaged, we seized the opportunity to make upgrades. Nearly all radiology and diagnostic equipment used for inpatient, outpatient, and emergency room care has been replaced. The new technology provides faster scan times and higher quality images, providing quicker and more accurate diagnosis for our patients.
Improvements in lung care have also been made, thanks to Dr. David Wilson, medical director of the Columbus Regional Health Lung Institute. Using electromagnetic navigation (EMN), physicians can now find and diagnose potentially cancerous lung lesions that are too small or inaccessible through traditional procedures. The use of EMN brings earlier identification and faster diagnosis for patients with lung cancer, and we are among the few hospitals in the country using this innovative technology.
Columbus Regional Health also has a new Joint and Spine Center dedicated to those needing joint replacement or spine surgery. This gives patients a specialized approach for orthopedic care that combines advanced surgical techniques with a program emphasizing education, wellness and socialization in order to maximize recovery.
So, why Columbus Regional Health? Because better healthcare for you begins here with us. Our team assumes great responsibility for each and every patient admitted. Our continuum-of-care model provides individualized treatment, consultation and services to meet your unique needs—because no two patients are ever alike.
