FARMINGTON — Franklin Community Health Network invites interested members of the community to attend its annual meeting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23.

FCHN is a locally controlled not-for-profit network of rural health care providers that includes Franklin Memorial Hospital, Evergreen Behavioral Services, Franklin Health, NorthStar and the Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County.

The session will take place in the Bass Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital. Attendees will receive a printed annual report, along with updates regarding new medical staff, new services and programs, new patient safety initiatives and future plans and goals. Presenters will include Rebecca Ryder, FCHN president, and Joseph Bujold, board chairman.

The meeting will include a social hour from 5:30 to 6 p.m. with refreshments. The program will start at 6.

A highlight of the program is the presentation of the annual Community Health Leadership Award to a deserving member of the community. Through the award, FCHN recognizes the unsung heroes who work to improve the health of the greater community and its members.
