  • Missionary outreach is medicinal

    Our health is one thing that all of us are concerned about and sometimes take for granted. And when we're ill, we are privileged to be able to simply pick up the telephone and make an appointment to see a doctor.

    Our community is served by dozens of well-trained physicians and a top-notch hospital. At Taylor Regional Hospital, we have available to us the latest in specialized medical care.

    But in other countries people aren't so fortunate.

    That's why a recent medical mission trip to Ecuador is so special.
