Prevention and Wellness
In 1954, Iredell Memorial Hospital opened with a mission to focus on the
wellness of the community we serve. That was a very progressive goal at
a time when most people viewed hospitals as a place that served only the sick.
Almost sixty years later, we still understand that good health is the foundation
of happiness. That's why Iredell is committed to promoting wellness
in our community. We actively promote good nutrition, exercise and healthy
lifestyles through screenings, educational programs and support groups.
We even partner with other community and national organizations to provide
resources to help people prevent and detect life-threatening diseases
early on. These partnerships allow Iredell to feature keynote speakers
and offer nationally recognized programs to our community.
Iredell Health System also offers comprehensive
occupational medicine and
corporate wellness programs to help business and industry reduce expenses and to help their
employees stay healthy.

any unmet needs. We invite you to
