MedWest hosts community meetings

MedWest Haywood will hold another series of community meetings in April and May. Feedback collected from the community during an initial round of public meetings last spring will be shared during the upcoming events.

Last year, Medwest Haywood Health System hosted meetings in an effort to learn how it might better serve the community. 

“I continue to be interested in knowing how our community thinks we are doing, because this is their community hospital,” said MedWest President and CEO Janie Sinacore-Jaberg. “I want to know the good as well as the cases when maybe we didn’t meet expectations, because if we don’t know about it we can’t fix it. We are here for one reason only; to provide safe, excellent care to our community. And it’s important to me that I get out and hear what people have to say.”

The first meeting will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., April 2 in the auditorium at the Haywood Community College. A second meeting will take place from noon until 1 p.m., April 8, at the MedWest Haywood Health and Fitness Center. The third meeting is scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m., May 1 at the town hall in Maggie Valley. The final meeting will take place from 6 to 7 p.m., May 5 at the Colonial Theater Annex in Canton.
