Virtual Food for Thought

Could virtual visits for non-emergency conditions become the new normal?  It has never been easier to meet with a doctor!  Telehealth offers convenient access to trusted medical care from anywhere.  Find out by joining us for a Virtual Food for Thought presentation on “Telemedicine and You”.  We will be talking with Cortney Smith, MCHS ProCare Director of Hospital Based Services.


At Medical Center Health System, the health of the community is our priority. There is nothing more important than your health for you and your family.

We understand that. In accordance with the current restrictions on group functions, our monthly Food for Thought luncheons for April and May are cancelled. Our hope is to be able to invite you to join us again for a presentation in June. Please watch for your postcard!

Take someone you love by the hand and join us for lectures, luncheons and other fun activities at Hand In Hand, the new program from Medical Center Health System that provides important updates on current medical topics and events going on around our community.
