CCMH residency program begins July 1

CCMH is pleased to announce the addition of two new residency programs Emergency Medicine and Family Practice Medicine, both working in partnership with the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine.

According to Ben Cooper, MD, Administrative Physician, CCMH had been looking to recruit emergency medicine physicians who would work and live in the community.

"It was decided that the best way to accomplish this was to recruit physicians during their residency — and what better way than to have our own residency program."

Take the Spirit of Survival Challenge

Are you in need of a tune-up? Would you like to get in better shape or start a running program but don’t know how? Or are you already a walker or runner who just wants to improve. Some people just need the motivation and inspiration of others to stay accountable and stick with the program. If any of these describe you, then this event is for you!

The 2014 Spirit of Survival will take place on October 5, and although it seems like a long way away, if you’re planning to walk or run in one of our certified events, it’s time to break out those shoes and start training.
