The local hospital is a cornerstone of any community – a place of care and caring when it is needed most. Access to 24/7 health services is a reassuring promise, critical to quality of life and peace of mind. First and foremost, CHS-affiliated hospitals provide a wide range of quality health services to help residents through all the stages of health and life. As major contributors to local economies, they provide jobs, tax revenues and charitable giving. The result of sustainable efforts to be a vital health resource and good citizen is a stronger community – now and for generations to come.
