Columbus Regional Hospital has been recognized as the first community-based independent hospital to achieve Heart Failure Center re-accreditation by the Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium in 2013.
CRH has launched a new effort at reducing sudden cardiac death for those with heart failure. Risk of sudden cardiac arrest is highest immediately after the diagnosis of heart failure and before treatment is medically optimized.
The Healthcare Colloquium is the only accrediting body focused solely on Heart Failure Accreditation and is the only hospital membership organization providing accreditation.
