United Regional Medical Center
Regional Medical Center is a rapidly growing 132-bed health care facility
located in Manchester and serves residents of Coffee and surrounding counties.
Formerly Coffee Medical
Center, the facility underwent
a change of ownership in July of 2002. Coffee Medical
Group, an investor group comprised mainly of physicians from Manchester and
McMinnville, purchased the hospital and nursing home from the county with the
goal of expanding services to provide necessary health care for residents of
the region who often had to travel out of area for services.
The group is in the
process of upgrading the facility, adding and improving equipment and
expanding services. A major construction project, slated to begin in the
spring of 2003, will double the hospital's size.

is currently comprised of a 54-bed general and acute care hospital, a 72-bed
nursing home and a specialty clinic staffed by over 25 board certified

upcoming construction project, as well as a women's health center.
