Summer Wellness Opportunities at Bates County Memorial Hospital

For your wellness, Bates County Memorial Hospital has added two new support groups and a summer health fair to community events.

Support Groups

A Grief Support Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at 4 pm, and a support group for Caregivers of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will meet every second Tuesday of the month at 4 pm, starting June 13. Nutrition Classes are every first and third Tuesday from 11am – 12pm. These free groups are led by health care professionals: Brionna Smith, LCSW leads Grief Support and co-leads the ASD Caregivers support group with Lexi Hahn, CMA.
