Cashiers Community Forum, Tuesday, February 27th

February 13, 2018

CASHIERS, N.C. – Harris Regional Hospital will hold a community forum from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, February 27 at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library located at 249 Frank Allen Road.

The forum is the second in a series of community sessions that began in November. 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.

“We were pleased with the interest demonstrated by the community at our first daytime forum last fall when more than 40 people attended to participate in a great discussion,” said Steve Heatherly, CEO of Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital. “We hope the upcoming evening session will be convenient for those who were not able to attend the first session due to work or school obligations.”

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 two years.

The forum is open to anyone. For information call (828) 586-7100.
