Letter to Editor Regarding National Rural Health Day
At McKenzie Health System, we believe that every day is National
Rural Health Day. Our growing team supports the health and wellness of local
communities in ways large and small – building an outstanding team of family
healthcare providers, bringing specialists to the area so patients do not have
to travel as much, investing in technology, and raising the bar for excellence
in emergency care. Why do we strive to be the very best for our rural
community? Because we know you’re worth it!
At the end of the day, we hope YOU realize you’re worth it too
and that you do your part to live a healthier life. Becoming more physically
active, making healthier food choices, drinking plenty of water, taking time
for yourself, getting regular checkups, and seeing your family doctor if you
are experiencing any health concerns, are all things you have control over and
can do to make a difference.
We are proud to once again join the National Organization of
States Offices of Rural Health to “Celebrate the Power of Rural” on National
Rural Health Day, November 15.
You may not be surprised to learn that nearly one in five
Americans calls a rural community home, and you definitely know how much
ingenuity, hard work and creativity people in Sanilac County contribute to the
world and to each other. We are pleased to join the National Rural Health Day
effort to acknowledge the dedication of people and businesses in rural
communities while also recognizing the challenges of healthcare in smaller
No matter where you come from or what your issue, our team of
experienced healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing excellent and
compassionate care. We are proud to be part of a rural community and proud of
the work our 275+ employees do every day to make Sanilac County an even better
place to work and live.
On behalf of our team members, thank you for your support and
trust over the years. We look forward to caring for you in the years ahead.
