Since 1967, Catawba Valley Medical Center has built strong relationships with the people, businesses and communities throughout the Catawba Valley. As the region's largest not-for-profit community hospital, it is our mission to improve the health status of the Catawba Valley. We do this by providing high-quality health-care services, as well as by supporting organizations dedicated to improving our standard of living. We exist to heal and comfort patients, to promote and foster a healthier Catawba Valley, and to assure access to health care to all who need it — not to create profits and return dividends to shareholders. By continuing to work together, we can improve the overall health status of the Catawba Valley and make our community an even better place to call home.
