To promote, educate and serve as the philanthropic resource to improve the health status of the people and communities served by the Nelson County Health System.

By keeping NCHS strong, everyone benefits! Not only is the health system critical for meeting the diverse health care needs of the area, it also plays a significant role in preserving the economic strength of the communities in Nelson County.
