Asante Ashland Community Hospital is a hospital in Ashland, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1907, it is owned by Ashland Community Healthcare Services, a not-for-profit organization.[1] In 2012, it explored an affiliation with Dignity Health,[2] with the later stopping negotiations in October 2012 over some resistance to the plan.[3] On November 15, 2012, Ashland Community Hospital chose to partner with Asante, the owner of Three Rivers Medical Center and Rogue Regional Medical Center to build a stronger financial base for the hospital.[4] Ashland's city council approved the transfer to Asante in June 2013.[5]

The hospital has 49 beds for inpatients, a diagnostic and surgery center with imaging equipment, a laboratory, and equipment for respiratory testing and surgery. Outpatient services cover internal medicine, home health and hospice care, memory care, physical therapy and rehabilitation, school nursing, wound care, and hyperbaric medicine.[1]

The hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO).[6]
