We All Have a God-Given Potential

Let’s Reach It Together

We all deserve a healthy, fulfilling life in body, mind, and spirit. So when you’re faced with challenges, AdventHealth Gordon, formerly Gordon Hospital, is here to help you reach your wellness goals. Our elderly and underprivileged neighbors in the Gordon County area can access our popular free community health-education classes, special clinical and non-clinical programs, and spiritual resources along with financial assistance for medical expenses.

All of our neighbors are invited to join our free or low-cost health education classes and support groups, where they can learn healthier habits, discover ways to move through a new life transition, or simply spend time with others who have similar life experiences. It all works toward creating healthier and happier communities and is all part of AdventHealth's mission to provide whole-person care for every one of our neighbors.
