Classes, Support Groups, and Consultations
Clinical staff begin the patient education process at the time of admission, during the hospital stay, and at discharge. Our goal is to provide a hospital environment where patients continually receive updated health information, are able to ask questions about their health, and can enjoy as comfortably as possible their stay in our facility. Ongoing health education is provided during regularly scheduled outpatient clinic visits. Family and employees are welcome to attend many of these classes (click on the topic you are interested in below for further information).
