Crenshaw Community Hospital, with 65 beds and over 170 employees, has a mission of quality care with hometown compassion. The hospital and the Crenshaw Family Care Clinic serve as the leading providers of personalized healthcare and urgent care in Luverne, Alabama. The hospital offers a range of diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency, and surgical services.
Professional Resource Management of Crenshaw, LLC took over the management of the hospital in 2002. Since that time, the hospital has undergone a major transformation and continues to upgrade the services to meet the community’s needs. In 2008, a new state-of-the-art emergency department was added with three procedure/exam beds, privacy partitions and a new nurses’ station with computers. In addition to the ER improvements, the hospital has gone through a series of renovations in the lobby and family waiting area, patient rooms, kitchen, operating rooms and administrative offices.
Breathe a breath of fresh air! September 1, 2011 the Crenshaw Community Hospital campus became a 100 percent tobacco-free environment. As part of the hospital’s commitment to providing a healthy, healing environment for patients, visitors, volunteers and employees, smoking or tobacco use was banned on hospital property.
The hospital also implemented a fully integrated electronic health record system in 2011 as part of the ongoing improvement efforts. An electronic health record system was designed to help medical providers improve quality of care, reduce risks, cut costs and maintain complete medical records. The electronic medical records system at Crenshaw Community Hospital interfaces with radiology, lab, pharmacy and central supply departments.
The PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) Program was added on January 21, 2013. This program serves patients in five surrounding counties and allows physicians to administer long term hydration therapy, antibiotics, chemotherapy and nutritional support.
The hospital also recently purchased new hospital beds and converted all patient rooms to private rooms. Other improvements include additional IV pumps, cardiac telemetry monitors, and new surgical equipment.
