Fresh care. Delivered daily.
Quality primary and specialty care, locally sourced
Surrounded by natural beauty and steeped in history, the communities of the Hudson Valley offer a rich quality of life that has attracted people from around the world for hundreds of years. As our population grows, so does our need for healthcare. Columbia Memorial Health has evolved to meet this demand. We’ve developed a network of quality primary care and specialty services, with connections to the top specialists in the nation. So we can deliver the highest level of care to our community every day.
Columbia Memorial Health, or CMH, has provided medical care for the Hudson Valley since 1889. Beginning with the Hudson City Hospital, our network has grown to serve more than 100,000 residents in Columbia, Greene and Dutchess Counties. In addition to our modern 192-bed hospital, CMH runs more than 35 care centers, including 15 primary care and more than 20 specialty care centers. Our staff includes physicians, nurses, technicians and specialists who have trained at the world’s most prestigious institutions and brought their expertise to serve our community. They’ve chosen to live here for the quality of life and the opportunity to deliver the latest technologies and highest quality care for their neighbors.
The CMH network extends far beyond our service area. Our patients have access to the very best providers available, locally or anywhere in the nation. We maintain professional affiliations and connections to the leading specialty care providers, including the top cardiac hospitals, cancer centers and experts in every field of medicine. So while your care is rooted here, close to home, your provider and treatment options are virtually unlimited.
In 2016, CMH launched a formal affiliation with Albany Medical Center that enhances the strengths of both organizations and enables a coordinated planning process to improve patient care. The two organizations are continuously identifying opportunities to bring needed services closer to the patient, better aligning resources and services, and more efficiently using information technology to enhance community-based care.
An innovative hospital
The center of our network is Columbia Memorial Hospital in Hudson, one of the most innovative and technically advanced facilities in the Hudson Valley. Over the last 10 years, we’ve invested more than $51 million in new facilities and equipment improvements, including surgical instrumentation, patient information systems and medical imaging technologies. Highlights of our updated facilities include the state-of-the-art emergency and surgical departments, nine-bed Intensive Care Unit and 71,300 square-foot office building and parking garage annex to make care easily accessible.
