The best way to serve the community is through quality healthcare delivery. This is done by recruiting and retaining physicians with superior credentials.

Education is another key to our success. We offer CME to physicians and staff at the Cowles Auditorium.

It also supports the health fair and barbecue cook off which is enjoyed by over six thousand people annually.
