Our Pledge to You
At United Regional, our goal is to provide patients, families and visitors with compassionate care and professional service. The hospital is dedicated to improving the health of the communities we serve and providing state–of–the–art technologies and facilities for our patients. Our employees are skilled, caring healthcare professionals and our medical staff is composed of highly qualified physicians. We are committed to maintaining a clean, comfortable and safe environment for patients, their families and visitors.
Employees of United Regional who have direct contact with patients maintain current licensure and certification. For those employees not directly related to patient care, the hospital hires people whose qualifications are commensurate with their job responsibilities. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and hire without regard to sex, race, creed, or national origin. If you decide to entrust us with your care, it will be our pledge to provide you with the greatest possible level of care.

The hospitalists will:
- assess and treat your medical condition
- coordinate medical testing during your stay
- provide progress reports to your physician
- transition your care back to your physician upon your hospital discharge
