Community Programs 

We serve patients and families in our hospital, but also reach out to members of the community with health and wellness seminars, events, screenings and blood drives, as well as other community activities.

Here is a list of upcoming events:

Foot Health Screenings, Wednesday, April 16, 2:00 - 4:00 pm at Kirkwood Imaging.  Foot problems may be a sign of  other, more serious medical conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and nerve or circulatory disorders. For example, arthritis could cause joint stiffness and diabetes could make your feet tingle or feel numb. High blood pressure and kidney or heart disease could cause swelling. Call 1-888-457-5203 to register.

Health screenings are not conclusive, but may be indicative of health problems. Individuals should always consult their physician.
