Community Engagement

Sharon Hospital remains committed to transparent communication with our patients and community members about our efforts to transform and continue supporting the region’s healthcare needs today and into the future.

 

We encourage you to visit this page for updates on our community outreach initiatives, including recorded sessions and more. Nuvance Health and Sharon Hospital leadership are grateful to all participants and look forward to continuing this collaborative process.
