The Columbus hospital system will also be added to the society’s Historic Business Register, which is special recognition for Indiana companies that have been continually in business for a century or more.

Founded as Bartholomew County Hospital on Feb. 6, 1917, Columbus Regional Health has been providing health care for residents in and around Columbus for more than 100 years. Columbus Regional Hospital now serves about 250,000 patients annually with a workforce of 2,700 employees.
