"Each of us working
together is able to do
what none could do
~ Anonymous
A "work in progress", our community can be proud of this unique Hospital sponsored
program. From the beginning HealthLink offered the traditional wellness programming such
as nutrition education, stress management, and childbirth preparation. Over the years in
response to community needs and interests, programs such as parenting, ViP senior wellness,
and health screenings were added. Today a wide variety of programs are offered,
incorporating newer offerings such as hiking, snow shoeing, yoga and healing touch.
In the end, it is the commitment of the Hospital to the community, which allows the center
not only to exist but also to thrive.
