In Service to Our Community

In Service to Our Community

As health care professionals we have dedicated our lives to caring for our community. Our work each day centers around caring for patients with skill and compassion. But for many of you that dedication extends beyond your work day. So many of our physicians, APPs, nurses, and Highland staff are involved in Highland leadership committees, professional organizations and community organizations that help fight poverty, alleviate health care disparities, ensure food security and so much more. That kind of compassion is most likely one of the reasons you turned to health care as a profession and a reason that compels you to do even more. We are grateful to each of you who volunteer your time for these committees and organizations.
