A message from the CEO

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

A team-based culture, a focus on relationships, high quality care, and engaged providers are what makes Columbus Community Hospital and Prairie Ridge Health Clinic a healthcare organization moving toward the future.

From our volunteers to our medical staff, our team is here for one reason only – to care for you.

For our team, this isn’t just a place to work. We operate with a “work like you own it” philosophy and it shows – in our relationships with our patients and their families, our relationships with each other and, most importantly, in the care we provide to you, our patients.

In 2017 we continued our quest to improve the patient experience. Our team at Columbus Community Hospital and Prairie Ridge Health Clinic is one that is driven to improve every day, because that’s what our patients and our communities deserve. That’s what we want for our neighbors, and that’s what we want for our own families.

As a result of our progress, we received the Healthgrades© 2017 Outstanding Patient Experience AwardTM for being in the top 15% in the nation for overall patient experience.

In addition, our medical staff and providers were honored with the Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award for Physician Engagement. We were one of only five hospitals nationwide to receive this designation.

Because of our highly engaged and collaborative team’s commitment to exceptional patient care every day in every way, our organization is growing. Patients now have access to care at three Prairie Ridge Health Clinic locations in Columbus, Beaver Dam and Marshall, as well as other clinics in the area.

We hope you will join us in our pursuit to build healthier communities. Together we will succeed. We look forward to making a difference in the lives of those we serve in 2018.

In good health, 

John Russell
President & CEO
