Council recognizes National Health Care Week

BY RON HARRIS, DAILY MOUNTAIN EAGLE
Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Jasper City Council members recognized National Health Care Week Tuesday morning by presenting a proclamation to representatives of Capstone Rural Health Center.

The proclamation, which was read by Jasper Mayor David O’Mary, said, in part, that “for over 50 years, community health care centers have provided high quality, affordable, comprehensive primary and preventive health care in our nation’s underserved communities, delivering value to, and having a significant impact on America’s health care system …”

National Health Care Week is observed Aug. 12-18 each year.

The proclamation states that more than 27 million Americans use health care centers as their primary health care options. 

Nationally, more than 200,000 people — including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician’s assistants and certified nurse midwives — work in health care centers.

Capstone currently operates clinics in Parrish, Jasper and Nauvoo.
