The Greater Bluefield Area is known for its value in quality healthcare. Throughout the Four Seasons Country, we are blessed with excellent and progressive medical care and services.
Mercer and Tazewell counties boast four quality hospitals: Bluefield Regional Medical Center, Princeton Community Hospital, Carilion Tazewell Community Hospital and Clinch Valley Medical Center. In addition, there are a substantial number of physicians available covering basically any special need. Advanced oncology-cancer care is just one of the many areas of available health care. Both counties are served by county health departments.
Healthcare in the community extends beyond just the hospitals with many clinics, express services and other facilities available to respond to any need. The region has some of the best-trained skilled physicians, nurses and other medical professionals. In addition, more advanced healthcare is available in many directions, all within just a short trip. The latest equipment in terms of state-of-the-art technology is available all around Four Seasons Country. Patients can look forward to the best of care and treatment, regardless of the condition.
In addition to the many hospitals providing primary care, the region has multiple other services. Well-trained and staffed rescue squads serve the entire area and a prompt response ensures timely action. The Behavioral Health Pavillion of the Virginias is an inpatient behavioral health facility also offering outpatient services. Also the area has a number of rehabilitation and nursing facilities to help you return to a normal lifestyle. For our senior citizens, many healthcare companies provide services whether to meet simple lifestyle needs or handle complex situations.
Education programs are available at our area colleges, universities and technical schools to provide quality workers in the many healthcare fields. The region is fortunate to have training programs in nursing, dentistry, radiology, laboratory and many other technical fields to provide support to the various clinics and hospitals. This allows our residents to receive an education and be able to remain in the area to live and work.
Throughout Four Seasons Country, we have groups working in making the area more attractive as a retirement destination. Quality healthcare is the cornerstone of that plan and we truly have some of the best care available. We take pride in the progress we have made and look forward to future developments in healthcare.
