About Us

Our History

Covington County Hospital opened in 1951 as a 25-bed hospital with the goal of providing the best possible medical care at an affordable cost for the people of Covington County. After many changes throughout the years, Covington County Hospital became a 25-bed critical access hospital in 2005.

The Hospital Construction and Survey Act, also known as the Hill-Burton Act, was federal legislation enacted in 1946 that addressed the severe shortages of hospital beds in underserved areas, particularly the rural South. The passage of this act encouraged local citizens in the Collins Rotary Club and Collins Jaycees, spearheaded by Dr. Charles P. Crenshaw, to make healthcare more accessible to the area.
