A Presidential Visit
As President George W. Bush made his way across the nation focusing on healthcare issues, he selected High Point Regional Health System as the venue for a national roundtable discussion on malpractice insurance. The nation’s attention turned to High Point Regional, as the president and national medical industry leaders converged for a medical summit.
The Health System opened its newly expanded and renovated Emergency Center, providing patients twice as much room and much improved access and privacy.
Piedmont Joint Replacement Center opened, offering education, surgery, post-operative care and individual and group physical therapy for patients undergoing joint replacement.
Hayworth Cancer Center
In its continuing efforts to meet the region’s most pressing healthcare needs, High Point Regional opened Hayworth Cancer Center. At the same time, the program was reaccredited at the highest level of approval from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
Our Mission Today
High Point Regional Health System today serves a region encompassing 475,000 people. That’s a far cry from the town of 6,500 that so desperately needed a hospital in 1904. While our region has certainly grown and our techniques of caring for the sick only vaguely resemble the methods of care available to our forefathers, one thing remains the same: our commitment to care for patients one at a time.
In today’s high-tech, fast-paced healthcare environment, High Point Regional sets itself apart by putting patients first. Our patients’ needs, wants, comfort and satisfaction drive every decision we make and each action we take. As a leader in understanding the needs of our region and in providing exceptional health services to citizens today and for many generations to come, we embark on our second century of care.
