Harris Regional Hospital to hold community forum in Cashiers
October 19, 2017
CASHIERS, N.C. – Harris Regional Hospital will hold a community forum from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 28 at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library located at 249 Frank Allen Road.
The primary purpose of the forum is for residents to share their perspectives on how healthcare is consumed in small mountain communities like Cashiers, Glenville, Tuckasegee, and Sapphire, located in Jackson County where Harris Regional Hospital is geographically positioned as a hub to serve the region.
Harris Regional Hospital, which became part of Duke LifePoint Healthcare in 2014, recently expanded access to primary care and subspecialty care such as cardiology, orthopaedics, and OB-GYN by welcoming 12 new physicians, physician assistants, and certified nurse midwives in those specialties alone in the last 18 months.
The forum is open to anyone. Additional forums in adjacent communities such as Highlands will be held through the upcoming year.
