Need a speaker for your next meeting?

At Washington County Hospital we believe that education is one of the ways to help improve the health status of our community. The Jack and Anna Hershey Education Center maintains a Speaker's Bureau of local physicians and healthcare providers who are available to address community and professional groups about a variety of healthcare-related topics.

As your community hospital, we are pleased to help support the health education initiatives of local organizations and will provide a customized presentation to meet your needs.

  3. Speakers are only available for events scheduled Monday–Friday between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm.
