Columbus Regional Healthcare System is continually recognized locally and nationally for our commitment to delivering efficient, quality care. We are proud of our team and the recognition that we receive from many of the top accrediting and ranking organizations in the industry.

Columbus Regional is accredited by DNV GL – Healthcare.

By earning accreditation, Columbus Regional has demonstrated it meets or exceeds patient safety standards set forth by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. DNV GL’s accreditation program integrates the ISO 9001 Quality Management System with the Medicare Conditions of Participation.
