Community Hospital

Welcome to the Community Hospital website. Our website highlights services and programs offered by Community Hospital and the high quality, compassionate care we provide. We are committed to meeting the needs of our community and provide compassionate care with the finest technology and services available today.

At Community Hospital, we have made investments in new technologies used for the detection and treatment of heart disease, cancer and other conditions. These include, The da VinciĀ® Robotic Surgical System used by physicians to perform surgery through tiny incisions, resulting in fewer complications, less blood loss and a quicker recovery. The Trilogy Radiation Therapy System gives patients a broader range of treatment options and the best chance for tumor control with the least damage to nearby healthy tissue. The Dual Source CT offers the highest imaging power available to produce the clearest images for making a diagnosis in less time and with less radiation exposure for patients. This technology features a completely non-invasive method to diagnose patients at risk for heart attacks, strokes and a variety of other medical conditions. The Open MRI features the widest patient gap of any high-field MRI system, and combines advanced imaging with a highly advanced ambient experience where patients are able customize the sites and sounds they hear and visualize during their exam.

Our Women's Diagnostic Center offers the advanced digital mammography to diagnosis cancer at early stages and delivers results to our patients the same day to ease their mind. Our Breast Care program is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), and offers the full spectrum of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, research, support and complementary therapy options. We also offer a High Risk Breast Clinic that provides individualized recommendations for prevention and surveillance for women at increased risk for breast cancer.

We are always challenging ourselves on ways to make the healthcare experience better for our patients, physicians and staff. Community Healthcare System hospitals and outpatient centers implemented EPIC, a computerized health information system that automates all aspects of the healthcare process from registration to clinical documentation to measuring outcomes. The EPIC system helps our staff deliver more efficient and safer care to our patients.

Community Hospital has been recognized as one of America's 50 Best Hospitals in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 by Healthgrades, the nation's leading healthcare quality ratings company, and is the only hospital in Indiana to achieve this national ranking. The Healthgrades America's 50 Best Hospitals designation is the only national hospital quality rating based solely on clinical outcomes, recognizing hospitals that have demonstrated superior clinical quality across 27 different medical procedures and diagnoses.

Thank you for visiting the Community Hospital website. We invite you to call or visit our hospital, one of our outpatient diagnostic facilities or medically based fitness center, to discover how our broad range of services can serve your health and wellness needs.
