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:

Alleviating Knee and Hip Joint Pain -- Tuesday, October 14, 6:30 pm.   Pain in a joint often arises due to cartilage damage, either from injury or general wear and tear. As a result, the joint becomes less mobile and even more painful. Learn the causes, symptoms and treatment alternatives for knee and hip osteoarthritis pain, including therapy, diet, medications and minimally invasive surgical techniques from Dr. Donald Bassman, orthopedic surgeon. Call 1-888-457-5203 to register.
