Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Opens New Home for Columbus Specialty Hospital!br>
Posted October 22, 2013
More than a year of planning, construction and designing every detail of a magnificent 18,000 square-foot facility comes to fruition on October 24, 2013 when the new Columbus Specialty Hospital officially opens. A carefully choreographed move of patients from the original facility located at the Midtown Medical Center to the newly complete 4th floor of Doctors Specialty Hospital will occur October 22nd and 23rd.
While we will maintain our capacity to treat 50 patients, the new facility allows us to continue our commitment in providing exceptional patient care and provides our patients and families with a larger, more comfortable space.The spacious, light-filled patient rooms provide a cheerful welcoming environment enhancing the healing process. Patient rooms have sleeping accommodations for family members that help overcome the distances they may travel to see their loved ones.
Columbus Specialty Hospital is the premier LTACH facility for Central West Georgia and East Alabama, partnering with patients, physicians and hospitals locally, regionally and as far away as Jacksonville, Florida. Columbus Specialty Hospital is Joint Commission accredited passing our latest Joint Commission survey June of this year. Columbus Specialty Hospital consistently beats national standards related to patient care. We are well below the national average in hospital acquired skin breakdown, central line infections, and respiratory infections including ventilator associated pneumonia. Columbus Specialty Hospital is celebrating over 3 ½ years without a patient acquiring a ventilator associated pneumonia. This is due entirely to our staff and physicians practicing stringent infection control procedures.
