Neighbors serving neighbors: the history of Crisp Regional Health Services
Today’s modern, high-tech Crisp Regional Hospital and the facilities in Crisp Regional Health Services are built on a long history of care. As Crisp County and the surrounding area have grown, and as medicine has changed, so have we. What has not changed is our commitment to providing our community the best healthcare possible, as close to home as possible.
Expanding services, enhancing facilities. The past decade has been one of much growth and change, both with the addition of new services and facilities in Crisp Regional Health Services and with expansion and renovation at Crisp Regional Hospital.In 2008, with support of the Crisp Regional Hospital Development Foundation and friends in the community, a new Intensive Care Unit opened. The 28,000 square foot expansion includes a 16-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU), waiting room, classroom, a new Medical Records department, and other facilities designed to make care easier, more pleasant and more efficient for patients, their families and the medical and nursing staff.
In 2013 Crisp Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department and level 4 trauma center expanded almost four times over, to more than 12,000 square feet, with larger treatment areas, room for more doctors and nurses to serve the growing emergency needs of a growing community, and more of the technology known to save lives in emergencies.
Both facilities won awards for their patient- and family-centered design and beauty.
