Coshocton Regional Medical Center remains committed to the continuing good health of the community and is currently focused on both the containment and mitigation of COVID-19. Appropriate resources of staff, clinical partners, space and supplies have been allocated to meet the needs of our patients, and adjustments will be made as necessary as we continue to monitor recommended CDC protocols. Working closely with local health officials, contingency plans have been put in place to ensure the safety and well-being of staff, patients, physicians, volunteers and community members who visit our hospital or clinics. To date, we have no cases of COVID-19 in our hospital.

“We are taking all the necessary precautions to protect patient and employee health” says Stephanie Conn, CEO. “We are working continuously with local health officials and continue to follow the guidance from the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC. All services remain open and available to care for our community.”
