Events for Your Patients

Throughout the year, Northwest Community Healthcare hosts a wide range of health and wellness seminars, screenings and events for area residents. These programs are intended to be educational and informative, serving as a complement to the existing relationship established between physicians and their patients.

Medical staff members are encouraged to share this information with patients.
