High-Tech Health Care

Coffee Regional Medical Center (CRMC) has served the healthcare needs of Coffee County for more than half a century. During that time the center has continued to grow and evolve. The 88-bed hospital (21 pediatric beds) received the Best Value Award 2009-2010 in recognition of excellence in quality, affordability, efficiency and satisfaction and in 2012 was voted the No. 1 top small hospital in Georgia in Georgia Trend magazine. It has repeatedly been named to the magazine’s top hospitals list. The hospital also earned a spot on the Georgia Hospital Association’s “Presidential Honor Roll” for adherence to core measures established by the Joint Commission.

CRMC utilizes up-to-date technology and equipment to provide care. CRMC has one of the largest telemedicine programs in the state of Georgia. The telemedicine equipment films the patient and transmits to a doctor that can then consult with the patient from a remote location. The physician is able to look at and converse with the patient. Over 40 physician specialists throughout the Southeast region work with CRMC’s telemedicine program.

Additionally, CRMC employs a robotic pharmacy where patient barcodes, included on wristbands, are matched to Rx barcodes to confirm the right medications are being delivered. This automation drastically reduces risk of errors and allows pharmacy staff more time to interact with the clinical teams.

From obstetrics and cardiology to pediatrics and immunology, the medical services provided by Coffee Regional Medical Center are broad and varied. Through this technology and the center’s dedication to service, Douglas-Coffee residents have access to high quality medical care.
