Located at 3901 South 7th Street in Terre Haute, Regional Hospital is a 278-bed community-based medical center with comprehensive medical and surgical programs. Terre Haute Regional is accredited by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. In 2006, Regional Hospital became the first Wabash Valley Hospital to be designated as an Accredited Chest Pain Center by the Society of Chest Pain Centers and Providers.
These accreditations help further Regional Hospital’s rich history of providing sophisticated care to the Wabash Valley community for over 129 years -from its beginnings as St. Anthony’s Hospital to the present day facility. In 1882, St. Anthony’s Hospital began as the only healthcare facility in the area. Together with the Sisters of St. Francis, St. Anthony’s Hospital served our community until 1975 when it was renamed Terre Haute Regional Hospital. In 1979, a modern five-story hospital complex was built on the south side of Terre Haute to replace the original building.
Terre Haute Regional Hospital was recently named one of the nation’s top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. Terre Haute Regional Hospital was recognized based on data reported about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and children’s asthma. Terre Haute Regional Hospital is one of only 405 U.S. hospitals and critical access hospitals (one of five in Indiana) earning the distinction of top performer on key quality measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Inclusion on the list is based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the previous calendar year. For example, this first recognition program is based on data that were reported for 2010.
In our continuing effort to be the leading medical provider in the area, Regional Hospital purchased the former HealthSouth building, located behind the hospital. This will allow for growth and better services for our patients. Our Outpatient Therapy Department relocated to the Regional Pavilion in November, 2011.
The Paul Seibenmorgen Cancer Center at Terre Haute Regional Hospital was opened in May, 2010. The center has received the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer approval with commendation.
In 2004, Terre Haute Regional Hospital completed the final phase of a $40 million new construction and renovation project. The scope of the project included the construction of a two-story tower for our ER and ICU. Other additions included expansion of the imaging department into a comprehensive Outpatient Services Center. This included adding a new MRI unit and two new CT scan units, new nuclear medicine and radiology equipment and additional mammography equipment. Another way Regional Hospital is focusing on the healthcare needs of the community is with the Wound Center. There have been multiple cosmetic improvements throughout the facility including renovation of the main lobby.
Community involvement is an important part of Terre Haute Regional Hospital's mission. Screenings, community education classes and seminars provide opportunities for individuals to take preventative steps in their own health and wellness, from obstetrical and breastfeeding classes to CPR and disease-specific programs. The hospital plays an active role in community-wide activities that promote health and wellness, safety, culture and general welfare of area residents through sponsorships, non-profit board participation by the hospital's leadership and participation in community programs.
Terre Haute Regional Hospital is an organization dedicated to its Mission, Values and Vision and is committed to providing quality, individualized patient care to the communities we serve. Terre Haute Regional Hospital looks forward to continuing to serve its friends and neighbors and growing with the community. We’re more than a hospital, we’re a family!
