The original facility, Tift General Hospital, was built in 1965 and was named after Captain H.H. Tift. In 1985, Tift General was designated as a Rural Referral Center by the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C. By the late 1990s, Tift General Hospital had undergone several expansions, renovations and additions to accommodate growing patient volume and new services. As the new millennium approached, market share in surrounding counties continued to grow, and a new name was discussed to reflect the hospital’s regional status. In 2000, the Tift County Hospital Authority approved to change the name of Tift General Hospital to Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC), to officially take effect in January 2001.
Since that time, Tift Regional Medical Center has developed even more with new facilities and expansions, including a new heart and vascular center, surgery center, patient registration area, oncology center expansion, radiology area, ICU and laboratory. A hospital medicine program was implemented and new surgical specialties were added. TRMC branched out further with the acquistion of Cook Medical Center in Adel and the development of Tift Regional Physician Group with clinics throughout the region. Today, TRMC serves as the main campus for Tift Regional Health System and strives to provide topnotch care for South Central Georgia residents.
TRMC is accredited by the The Joint Commission, American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
