Our Community

Summit County Community ProgramsFor nearly three decades, High Country Healthcare providers and staff have been vital members of the communities throughout Summit County.  We support opportunities that promote health and wellness for our patients as well as our community at large.

Local Athletic Program Support

High Country Healthcare is a sponsor of the local school and district athletic programs.  From funding Summit High School Athletics to sponsoring elementary school teams for Optimist Basketball and providing discounted sports physicals, High Country Healthcare is committed to encouraging healthy habits for youth in our community.

Prenatal care and education are provided in a relaxed group setting where eight to twelve women with similar due dates meet to share their experience. Centering Pregnancy is offered to all of our prenatal patients.

Walk with a Doc

During the summer of 2011, Dr. Larry George and his wife Dr. Karen Wyatt launched “Walk With A Doc” with the support of all High Country Healthcare physicians.  Each Saturday, one of our doctors led a walk and talked about a different health topic.  Walkers of all shapes, sizes and ages joined in on the lively and informal discussion and relished in the opportunity to talk with a doctor one-on-one.

Free Surgery Day

For the past two years, High Country Healthcare OB/GYN surgeons have participated in Free Surgery Day for patients in need of life altering surgical care.
