ER & Urgent Care

Columbus Community Hospital's Emergency Services staff is here for you and your family 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
24-hour physician coverage with emergency board certified physicians and ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certified nurses, working together as a specially trained team to make your experience less frightening and less stressful.

Urgent Care Services, located within the Emergency Department, are available 24 hours a day. Urgent Care Services are for minor, non-life threatening illnesses and injuries that require attention, but could be addressed in your physician's office. Urgent Care is not meant to replace the relationship you have with your primary physician, but is available if you are unable to schedule an appointment with your physician.

No referral is needed for use of our Urgent Care Services, however, it is recommended you have a clear understanding of your insurance coverage before utilizing Urgent Care. Our Emergency Department and Urgent Care Services accepts most major insurances.

Our Emergency Department staff works closely with area ambulance and EMS services from Columbus to Marshall, Randolph to Beaver Dam, and Sun Prairie to Rio to Reeseville as well as Med-Flight services in Madison.
