Takoma Regional Hospital is the first hospital in Greene County and among the four percent of hospitals in the country with an electronic medical records system complete with Computerized Provider Order Entry – a system which increases patient safety by removing handwritten orders and reduces the time for patients to receive medications and tests. We’re leading the way for increased patient safety. We’re making a difference for our community. We deliver superior health care with compassion. That’s our mission.

  • The delay that normally occurs between hand-written orders and actual patient-care will be eliminated, allowing patients to receive medications and test faster.
