Columbus Community Hospital hip fracture care among nation's best

September 11, 2022

Columbus Community Hospital is among an elite 36% of hospitals nationwide to earn an award from the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Hospitals list. Of the more than 6,000 adult hospitals in the U.S., fewer than 2,200 qualified for an award.

The award was for excellence in orthopedics, specifically in hip fracture care. The score is based on multiple data categories, including patient outcomes, readmission prevention and more.

“The recognition by U.S. News and World Report is an honor and a validation of the core values instilled throughout CCH’s entire organization of CCH,” said Dr. Dustin Volkmer with Columbus Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic. “It demonstrates the commitment by the hospital and COSMC providers and staff to provide expert care close to home, while taking a personalized approach to every patient we have the privilege to see.”

“We serve the orthopedic needs of not only Columbus, but also the surrounding communities, with expert, compassionate care,” Volkmer continued. “We seek to not only treat injuries or chronic orthopedic conditions, but also promote wellness and injury prevention in the community through projects such as the fieldhouse.”

The hospital scored high in patient experience, including satisfaction with doctors, nurses and the hospital overall, willingness to recommend, and staff responsiveness, among other categories.

“CCH has always fostered a strong culture of teamwork and collaboration amongst all departments and providers, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of the communities we serve,” said Volkmer. “This translates into a very personalized health care experience, in which individuals are treated not only as patients, but also as neighbors and friends.”
