Prioritizing During the Pandemic

Columbia Bank prioritized their community—even beyond branch operations—in the early stages of COVID-19. Bank associates helped to extend a $1.5 million dollar line of credit that was used to transform Edison’s 157,000 square foot Convention and Exposition Center into a 500-bed emergency field hospital. Grasping the urgency of the situation, they worked diligently to close the loan in less than a week.
