Building Foundations

The definition of foundation can be “the lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level,” or “an underlying basis or principle for something.” We are building foundations for improved healthcare and outcomes for our communities and all patients that use our services. We are very excited by the progress and are still on schedule to complete Phase I by the end of the year. If you are looking for more information on the construction project, please remember our build.cchd-wa.org.

Columbia County Health System is a Participant in the National Rural Accountable Care Organization

Columbia County Health System announces its National Rural Accountable Care Organization Participation at a public launch meeting held at the Best Western Hotel on March 2nd, 2016.

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs): Providing Better, Coordinated Care for You.  Columbia County Health System is participating in the National Rural Accountable Care Organization, National Rural ACO 16, LLC, a Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO. An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and/or other health care providers working together with Medicare to give you better, more coordinated service and health care. Think of an ACO as a team made up of your doctors and other health care providers. We are working together to share important information and resources about your individual needs and preferences. Doctors and hospitals in an ACO communicate with you and with each other to make sure that you get the care you need when you’re sick, and the support you need to stay healthy.

As the Nation moves away from pay for service to payment based on value and quality, Columbia County Health System will remain positioned to serve our communities. We are proud to be participating with other early adopters of this Medicare program.

Dayton Makes the list for Quality

NOSORH-iVantage-Award-Logo-Final-v2

On November 19, 2015, leaders from the rural health community from across the country will celebrate National Rural Health Day in recognition of the tremendous accomplishments that have been achieved in rural healthcare this year. In support of this recognition, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care.

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) and iVantage recognize Washington as having 37 hospitals reach top quartile performance status in Quality, Outcomes, Patient Satisfaction, and Financial Strength compared to all acute care hospitals in the nation. The rankings have been designated by the Hospital Strength INDEXTM, the assessment of hospital performance in the country to include all rural providers.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to the cancer.org website about 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in 2015. Breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in women, and 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer. While several risk factors like gender, aging and genetic risks cannot be avoided, there are some things women can do to reduce their risk including limiting alcohol use, not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, and increasing daily, physical activity. Columbia County Health System can also assist you with diagnostic testing, smoking cessation classes, referral, and education. If you have a family history of breast cancer, or feel that you would like to speak to a provider about breast cancer, please contact one of our clinics and set up an appointment with your provider
