Community Description:
The community serves approximately 50k people, but yet still has an intimate, "small-town" charm. It is an economically strong, culturally diverse place where there are plenty of things to do and enjoy, yet still safe and stable enough to raise a family or grow meaningful relationships. Our facility is only a few miles from a regional hospital. We have a great community, and are very excited about the providers who will join our team, and benefit the greater community as a whole.
