Red Cross Blood Drive - March 13
Hospital Visitation Restrictions Requested
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System asks that anyone sick with the flu or flu-like symptoms voluntarily refrain from visiting hospitalized family and friends, as well as those persons at the hospital for an outpatient procedure. It is also important that during this time of increased flu and flu like illness in our area, visitors 12 and under should refrain from visiting hospitalized family and friends.
Community Health Needs Assessment
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS) conducted a community health needs assessment (CHNA) and developed an implementation strategy to address the health needs identified in the CHNA. ARHS helmed the assessment process with assistance provided by Watauga, Avery, and Ashe Counties. Data was collected from residents through surveys administered throughout the three counties, and interviews were conducted with key community leaders. This dual set of primary data was strengthened with secondary data from the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics and County Health Rankings to provide a clear picture of the health issues affecting ARHS’s community.
