Communities like ours have proven the need to maintain a high standard for small town health. Without it, we add distance between our homes and health care facilities. With neighboring towns closing their hospital doors, Columbus Community Hospital has become the first or only health care option for miles. Certainly, many rural hospitals are struggling. As hospitals merged or became acquired, their scope began to reach beyond traditional markets to access certain patients. Despite these trends, the Columbus Community Hospital team remained strong, and our success continues.
Columbus Community Hospital has always been known to take care of its own, establishing a 21-bed hospital in 1950. Later, as Columbus grew, so did the facility. The hospital has grown to 40 beds with 16 full-time physicians. Our acute care facility staffs over 175 people. Serving our community is our only goal. We’ve responded as patient needs have grown.
We provide the care our community needs — close to home, offering experience and medical expertise.
Columbus Community Hospital’s team cares, and we are in a unique position to offer more services where they are critical. We are honored to serve our region — eliminating the need for patients to make the long drive other cities for medical assistance.
Expanding to Meet Broader Needs of a Growing Community
To meet the growing demand and needs of an expanding population, our leadership realized the opportunity to expand facilities. Columbus Community Hospital stands as a critical care facility accessible for the surrounding rural population. It’s time to grow and establish additional care, saving community members from excessive travel for primary and specialty health care.
Columbus Community Hospital continues to grow its services and will soon break ground to enlarge and improve our campus to meet your health care needs — to serve our community.
2021 will be an exciting time for Columbus Community Hospital and its patients. We are thrilled to grow with you and for you.
