ER team receives 2016 Guardian of Excellence Award

The Columbus Community Hospital (CCH) Emergency Services Team recently received the Press Ganey 2016 Guardian of Excellence Award for patient experience. The Guardian of Excellence Award is given to organizations which have achieved and maintained a 95th percentile or higher in overall patient satisfaction throughout a 12-month period. “Delivering consistent high quality patient care is a team sport,” said LuAnn Reuter, RN and CCH Emergency Department Manager. “Our ER team is dedicated and committed to the community. We strive to provide compassionate, connected care.”

Be prepared during an electrical outage - Visit

Be prepared during an electrical outage

Our society relies on electricity for heat, food, and medical needs. Even some gas appliances need electricity to run. And when a power outage follows another emergency—like a tornado, or winter storm – that makes it even more important to be prepared in advance.

“We don't realize how dependent we are on power until we are without it,” says Karen Sell, RN and Columbus Community Hospital’s Disaster Preparedness Chairperson. “Sudden power outages can and do happen in Wisconsin. Are you ready?”


Information during an emergency is key - visit

Do you have the ability to receive, understand, and act on information in an emergency?

Getting correct information during an emergency is the key to taking safe action. Someone in your household may not be able to receive, understand, or act on emergency information. Think about what special needs your household may have. Take action now to make sure everyone in your family will be safe in an emergency. 


Sept. 28 Walk in the Park to benefit Columbus Fire Department

Columbus Community Hospital (CCH) will host a Walk in the Park Sept. 28, 4:30 p.m. at the American Legion in Columbus. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Columbus Fire Department to purchase lifesaving equipment used during calls. A special demonstration of the Columbus Fire Department’s new drone will take place prior to the walk.


Every month is breast cancer awareness month

While October is designated to breast cancer awareness, every month is breast cancer awareness month at Columbus Community Hospital (CCH). That’s why the medical imaging staff at Columbus Community Hospital encourages women to perform regular self-exams, have a clinical breast exam and begin having mammograms at the appropriate age. “If you are 40 and older, we recommend having an annual mammogram and clinical breast exam by your physician or provider,” said Denise Buzzell, RTR, M, CT, CCH Medical Imaging Manager. “And women who are in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam at least every three years.”


Vote Sept. 12 for your favorite Pink Glove video!

Columbus Community Hospital has officially entered the 2016 Medline Pink Glove Dance national video competition for a chance to win a $15,000 donation to the Pink Ribbon Angels and generate social media attention about breast cancer.

The Medline Pink Glove Dance is the only campaign of its kind to bring together nearly 250,000 healthcare professionals, patients and communities to celebrate hope for a cure. It’s also the only competition to honor all who’ve been affected by the disease through the joy of dancing.


Support and information provided through Breast Health Program

As the Breast Health Nurse Specialist at Columbus Community Hospital, Cathy Butterbrodt, RNC, CBPN-I; ONC, regularly answers questions from patients and their families with one goal in mind – to help the patient.

“Breast cancer and even benign breast findings can be very confusing and complicated,” said Butterbrodt. Why do I need chemotherapy? Why do I need radiation? What did I do that caused my breast cancer? I don’t have a family history, so why do I need to even have a mammogram?
