Education

Our medical care extends far beyond our hospital walls. We offer a variety of tools and information designed to help you make healthy decisions as you go about your daily life.

Within the Hospital

We often host informational health presentations that are free to anyone in the community wishing to attend. Typically an hour long, we feature a variety of topics and medical experts. Information may be about a new service offered within the hospital, or we may simply recap a health topic worth knowing.

We often use this opportunity to introduce new physicians and staff as well. How often do you have the chance to meet a new doctor before scheduling an appointment?

In addition to informational talks, we offer monthly support groups and classes to address the needs of our patient population. They include a variety of health topics including:

  • Education Presentation Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Bereavement
  • Childbirth Preparation
  • CPR & First Aid Training
  • Diabetes Education
  • Stroke
