Mission Statement

We are dedicated to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve by providing high- quality healthcare with a personal touch.

Description

It all started in 1925, when a group of citizens set out to obtain a hospital that would serve the rich and the poor as well as measure up to "big city" standards of medicine.

Centra Southside Community Hospital was originally a foundation experiment to determine if proper health care could be provided in a rural setting. Construction and operating grants were made possible by the Commonwealth Fund of New York. In July 1926, the Farmville Manufacturing Company was awarded the construction contract and by November 1927 Centra Southside Community Hospital had opened its doors to patients.

The original 40-bed hospital cost $180,000 to build and equip. That expenditure, minimal by today's standards, has proven to be a wise investment.

CSCH has been the healthcare center of Southside Virginia since opening its doors November 9, 1927. Since then, it has operated on a non-profit basis with the goal of helping to heal the ill and injured. The hospital now serves the residents of Amelia, Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway, and Prince Edward Counties.
