We're doing everything possible to protect our community while providing exceptional care for our patients during this time. Here's what we're doing to help. We are proud to announce the opening of the West Jefferson Medical Center Screening Center. The goal of our screening center is to meet the growing needs of our community and help prevent the continuous spread of infection.
