From the President
Community Hospital Anderson has been serving the needs of Madison County residents as well as surrounding counties since 1962. When the hospital first opened, it was considered a state-of-the-art facility. Over 50 years later, we are still focused on bringing the latest medical advancements to Madison County. Many of our services allow patients to stay close to home for their health care needs. We want to bring technology here for our community to benefit. Just a few examples of our advancements include our da Vinci® robotic surgical system, interventional cardiology lab, Clinical Research Center and our Center for Advanced Wound Healing. Our most recent venture has been adding some advanced neurosurgical equipment, which will allow us to perform spine and brain surgeries.
We pride ourselves in providing high quality health care for all ages. Delivering the majority of the births in the county, we are the hospital of choice for OB services. In 2005, we received the "Baby Friendly" designation from the World Health Organization, becoming one of only a few hospitals in the state to have earned this prestigious distinction.
Community Anderson provides a true continuum of care due to the fact that we own and operate three nursing homes and an assisted living facility. We also offer Monticello House, the only free-standing Alzheimer's living facility in Madison County.
In 1996, we affiliated with the Community Health Network, headquartered in Indianapolis, which has won numerous awards for being one of the most integrated health care systems in the country. Our affiliation allows us to provide a continuum of care to our patients ranging from basic health care needs to the more complicated cases.
