Crisp Regional Health Services



Since 1953, Crisp Regional Hospital has provided affordable, high-quality medical care for the people of Crisp and surrounding counties. Over the years, we have seen many changes. Our new, state-of-the-art, 73-bed hospital was built in 1990.

In 1993, we reorganized our corporate structure, and Crisp Regional Health Services was created to oversee the hospital and its other entities. With this restructuring came the addition of a home health program, a 143-bed nursing home, a retirement home, a hospice and homecare program, a dialysis facility, and rural health clinics in our bordering areas.

While growing, we have not lost sight of our mission to provide quality care and assistance in an efficient and caring manner. We provide care to all who need our services as near to their home as possible. We are simply neighbors caring for neighbors.

At Crisp Regional Health Services, we are always striving to improve ourselves. If you have any suggestions or questions during your stay with us, please do not hesitate to contact a staff member. We thank you for choosing Crisp Regional Health Services for your healthcare needs.
