Health and Wellness

At Upson, we believe that delivering exceptional healthcare extends beyond our hospital walls. That is why we frequently provide health and wellness education programs in local schools, businesses, organizations, and throughout the entire community so that all residents have access to life-changing, and sometimes life-saving, information.

We are proud to offer several community programs, many of which are free or at a very low cost to participants.

  • Citizen CPR
  • The Basics First Aid
  • Mother/Baby Courses
  • Stress management
  • Weight management
  • Teambuilding
  • Keys to overall wellness
  • Women's health
  • Back safety
