About Community Memorial Hospital

Exceptional care in a truly state-of-the-art setting

Welcome to Community Memorial Hospital, a regional hospital that focuses on excellence, while never losing sight of providing warm and friendly care for our friends, families and neighbors.

In order to expand upon the health care services and technology we offer our community, we’ve dramatically transformed our hospital, top to bottom. Here are some highlights:

  • Modern and comfortable patient rooms. Each light-filled room is equipped with flat-screen TV and WiFi; some rooms have a special lift system attached to the ceiling to make transfers more comfortable, safer, and more efficient.
  • CMH Raiter Family Clinic is our newly-merged primary care facility. The clinic is staffed by experienced, friendly physicians delivering expert health services for the whole family.
  • Our Intensive Care Unit has four modern patient rooms, all equipped with the latest technology.
  • Onsite Specialty Clinic includes Women’s Health, the Pain Clinic, our general and orthopedic surgeons, as well as visiting specialists who offer a full range of medical services and the convenience you’ve asked for.
  • Excellent Urgent Care/Emergency Services. CMH has been designated a Level IV Trauma Center, with a nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:3.
  • CMH provides excellent medical care for women at the Birthing Suites. Unlike the regional hospitals that no longer deliver babies, CMH is committed to caring for women through pregnancy and delivery, and to providing professional lactation consultants and other services for new moms and their babies.
  • High-quality in-house Imaging Services include digital radiography, CTs, MRIs, 3D mammography, ultrasound, cardiac stress testing and monitoring, EKGs, echocardiography, and nuclear medicine. Expert radiologists on staff.
  • Onsite Laboratory performs routine and emergency lab testing, 24/7 on modern, automated, state-of-the-art equipment.
  • Unlike many community hospitals, CMH provides Anesthesia 24/7.
  • Infusion Therapy allows individuals who are receiving chemotherapy or other infusion therapies to complete their therapy close to home and work.

CMH currently employs 400 people and directly and indirectly contributes over $40 million to the regional economy.
