A message from the CEO

Building caring relationships is at the heart of what we do at Columbus Community Hospital.

In 2016, we remained focused on expanding access to providers while maintaining and increasing our standards to provide high-quality, compassionate, accessible care throughout our hospital and clinics.

Our third Prairie Ridge Health Clinic (PRHC) is now open in Marshall, providing primary care services to a community of about 4,000 people. Kris Braker, Family Nurse Practitioner, and her team are excited to bring our collaborative, relationship-focused culture to the Marshall community.

Our Emergency Department achieved and maintained the 95th percentile or higher in overall patient satisfaction for a 12-month period, earning the team the Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award for patient experience. This distinction, along with our relationship with Madison Emergency Physicians, Board Certified in Emergency Medicine, and our certified ER nursing team, means our patients are assured the highest level of care in the emergency department, including specialized care for cardiac and stroke emergencies, advanced airway management and pediatric emergencies.

Orthopedic services continue to grow as a result of our high patient satisfaction scores and rapid patient recovery time driven by our dedicated joint replacement team at the Prairie Ridge Center for Orthopedic Excellence. We are proud to be one of only three facilities in Wisconsin to offer 3D custom knee replacements. This advancement in joint replacement technology and refined surgical procedures brings our program to the next level.

As we enter 2017, we look forward to taking care of you. Whether you attend one of our support groups, serve as a caregiver to a friend or family member, or see us as a patient, your health and wellness is our motivation. We invite you to visit us, meet our team members, and learn about our services.

We are proud of the final product and hope you share in celebrating this exciting time for CCH and the patients and communities we serve.

In good health, 

John Russell
President & CEO
