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:

Makoplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing -- You live your life at one speed … Full Out. Don’t let knee pain hold you back. Makoplasty ® robot-assisted partial knee resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve knee pain and restore range of motion.  This surgery preserves healthy bone and tissue, typically resulting in a shorter hospital stay with a faster recovery time. Learn more at an upcoming seminar. Call 1-855-290-9355 to register.  Seminars held in building 2315 Dougherty Ferry Road at 6 pm.
