Ringgold County Hospital is committed to providing the safest and highest quality of care to patients. We measure our performance against our own rigorous standards, and we compare the outcomes of our care with top medical centers nationwide in our effort to continually improve the care we provide. We believe that sharing our results with the public is an obligation and a critical factor in our mission of continuous improvement.

At RCH, we define optimal quality care as:

  • Coordinated care across all health-care settings
  • Superior care and outcomes
  • Outstanding patient safety
  • Care delivered in a timely manner
  • Fair, unbiased access to health care

See our Excellence in Care video here to view our progress in quality and safety.

We know you have many choices for where you receive health care. All of us have the power, and the responsibility, to do our best when it comes to our health and wellness. Although there are things that are out of our control, like hereditary factors or accidents, there are many things we can do to stay healthy.

Just like those familiar wedding vows, “In sickness and in health,” you are fortunate to have a partner in Ringgold County Hospital. Our staff is dedicated to providing the best possible care when you are sick. We’re also dedicated to providing the best preventative and follow-up care to keep people healthy.
