We want you to be well and live well – as our branding says, that’s why we’re here.

2022 SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT
In 2022, we provided more than $20 million in services to those in need but without the means to pay.
Inviting the best possible providers into our community and supporting them is essential to ensuring access to high-quality care. In 2022, we added 22 affiliated providers in cardiology, emergency medicine, family medicine, infectious disease, orthopedics, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, radiology, and women’s health.
By continually investing in our facilities, we’re helping to ensure that we continue to meet our community’s healthcare needs. Last year, we spent $1.4 million in capital improvements, including investments in new
patient beds, patient medication infusion pump and monitoring systems, telephone and IT server systems, and sidewalk replacements.
We strive to create an environment where talent is recognized, job satisfaction is valued and our employees can effectively use their skills to provide high-quality care and service. In 2022, we distributed $34.7 million to approximately 300 employees.
We are proud to be a leader in our communities, and our dedication to ensuring fiscal responsibility extends both to our hospital and to our community. Last year, we paid $2.35 million in provider, payroll, property and sales taxes.
