National Rural Health Day – November 15th

By November 7, 2018Uncategorized

Yoakum Community Hospital is proud to recognize the innovation, quality of care, and dedication of health professionals and volunteers in our community during National Rural Health Day 2018. National Rural Health Day falls on the third Thursday in November each year and recognizes the efforts of those serving the health needs of over 60 million people across the nation. Rural communities, like Yoakum, are wonderful places to live and work, but they also have unique healthcare needs, which is why the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) celebrates National Rural Health Day!

“In honor of National Rural Health Day, we would like to thank members of our community for supporting Yoakum Community Hospital. Without your support, our rural hospital would not be what it is today,” Karen Barber, YCH Chief Executive Officer said.

Yoakum Community Hospital has provided healthcare to our community since 1922. This 25-bed facility operates as a nonprofit hospital and is managed by Community Hospital Corporation in Plano, Texas. Yoakum Community Hospital provides a broad range of inpatient and outpatient services to meet the evolving health care needs of our community, which include laboratory, physical therapy, imaging, emergency, general medicine, surgery, cardiology, sleep studies and the many other specialists. Also on campus, Yoakum Family Practices provides comprehensive family medical care to our community.
