Coshocton Regional Medical Center began its proud history of serving the
people of Coshocton and surrounding counties in 1909 as the Keenan Private
Hospital, in a small brick building on the corner of Walnut and South 15th Streets. As a means of staffing the new 25-bed hospital, the Coshocton
City Nursing School was founded in 1912, and offered education and training
for aspiring nurses for 35 years until its closing in 1945.
By the early 1950s, it was clear that providing our patients with quality
community-based health care required the construction of a new facility.
On Oct. 13, 1957, our four story, state-of-the-art hospital opened its
doors at its new location at 1460 Orange St. The old hospital was renovated
as an extended care facility.
New technologies have brought revolutions in health care and Coshocton
Regional Medical Center has taken a leadership role in implementing new
services and technologies to serve patients in our communities with excellent
care close to home. The addition of diagnostic imaging equipment such as
Full Field Digital Mammography have helped us achieve excellence in diagnostic services. Advancements
in cancer treatments led to the development of our
outpatient oncology center, providing necessary chemotherapy or other infusion therapies without
having to travel far from home.
We have kept pace with advancements in diagnostic capabilities in both
the radiology and laboratory services we offer. Our history has marked
the evolution to the speed and precision of
64-Slice CT scanning, and
nuclear imaging to aid in the diagnosis of conditions in the bone, organs and soft tissue.
Digital technology and secure image transmissions allow us to process,
read and return results to your physician with the timeliness and accuracy
necessary to get you the answers and treatment you need.
Emergency medicine stands at the heart of healthcare in any community, always prepared to
manage traumatic injury or rapid onset of symptoms such as a heart attack
or stroke. Our emergency team is focused on prompt, compassionate, quality
treatment to produce the best possible outcome for each patient. Whether
we are treating a patient on their way to recovery or surgery in our hospital
or preparing him or her for transport to a metropolitan medical center
for advanced treatments, the intervention our ER team provides makes a
dramatic difference for a positive outcome.
In 2016, history and tradition met technology and innovation when the hospital
was acquired by Prime Healthcare Foundation. The hospital remains a not-for-profit
organization strongly committed to the community spirit that defines the
very best community hospitals.
At Coshocton Regional Medical Center, we’re proud of the history
that brought us here, and enthusiastic about the innovations yet to come
… in our second hundred years!
