As the cornerstone of healthcare for the region for more than six decades, Faith Community Hospital (FCH) today sits as an excellent example of not only what can be accomplished in rural healthcare, but what can be achieved for the greater Jacksboro community. Recognizing the importance of the hospital’s existence, Faith Community Health System will be joining thousands of others across the country in observing National Hospital Week (May 12-18).
National Hospital Week began in 1921 as the brainchild of a magazine editor who wanted to educate the public about the work of hospitals. Since, the event has become one of the nation’s largest healthcare celebrations.
The nationwide campaign is designed to recognize all the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for their critical contributions that collectively help make a healthy community.
FCH offers a comprehensive range of medical services for the community, including 24-hour emergency care; advanced radiology services, including breast cancer screening, CT scanning, and MRIs; a clinical laboratory; three rural health clinics; surgical services; a maternity center; a wellness and fitness center; and more.
Jack County’s local hospital has grown into a full-fledged health system in recent years since the opening of the replacement hospital facility in 2014. Focused on patient care, the hospital has added important imaging services, opened the Swan Family Wellness Center, added a rural health clinic in both Bowie and Alvord, and now operates several nursing homes in the region.
We appreciate the communities support and all our wonderful employees who make Faith Community Health System what it is today!
Happy National Hopsital Week!
