    Columbus Regional Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by IBM Watson Health, a division of IBM that is dedicated to the development and implementation of technologies designed to advance health. Columbus Regional Health is one of only two Indiana health systems on the list.

    The award is based on a broad study of 989 U.S. hospitals’ clinical, operational, and patient satisfaction metrics and data and means that our Heart & Vascular Center has demonstrated better clinical care and has delivered that care more efficiently than most other cardiovascular programs.

    “It is wonderful to receive this external recognition for the excellent work our Heart and Vascular team of physicians, nurses, technicians, and other healthcare professionals perform each and every day,” said Columbus Regional Health President and CEO Jim Bickel. “I want to congratulate and thank our teams who earned this well-deserved recognition for continuing to provide the highest quality of care for our patients.”
