Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC), located in Columbia, TN, is the largest medical center from Nashville to Huntsville, and was recognized by Truven Health Analytics as a ‘15 Top Health System’ in 2015.

The results have allowed Forum to grow and sustain their operations while lowering costs and driving accuracy.
