    As the flagship hospital of our not-for-profit healthcare system, Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC), a level 1 Trauma center, encompasses several campuses totaling 909 beds to offer the most comprehensive care to our region.  Rehab services are provided across the continuum, including a Neuroscience center and Primary Stroke Center, Joint Replacement Center of Excellence, Level III NICU, and the Leon S.

Additionally, access to the educational process offered in a teaching hospital offers opportunities to attend Grand Rounds, interact with physicians in the residency program, and learn from various healthcare professionals in the teaching environment.
