Important Health News
Help us spread the word!
The Tri-County Health Council has launched a multi-faceted campaign effort to reach members of the Greater Pottstown region to encourage people to seek immediate emergency care if experiencing signs of a stroke or heart attack. Many people are experiencing anxiety about going to the hospital for emergency care due to the pandemic. However, our hospitals and healthcare facilities are fully equipped and safe for people who need immediate care.

Help us spread the word and reduce the harm done to individuals who might ignore symptoms of stroke and heart attack and not seek care.
